The architect explains the design intent further: “We wanted to keep this idea of a historic mews site, which was semi-industrial, and to bring in the feel of a warehouse.”


Performance


When it came to the finished building’s performance, the building achieved BREEAM Very Good, largely through the upgrades made to the external envelope such as windows, as well as through an efficient energy system installed on the roof, which provides hot and cool air into the building through mechanical ventilation.


“The BREEAM rating is great for this kind of building," says Leo, "and the EPC was also vastly improved,” with the building's ongoing CO2


emissions having been lowered as a result.

According to the architect, the reaction from those around it has also been “excellent.” He says: “Even the neighbours who share the courtyard, they’ve told me they ‘can’t believe what we’ve done here.’” Leo continues: “They were very worried about the development, but the reaction from the neighbours and the local people was brilliant, as was the reaction from the client.” The architect tells me that one group was so impressed with the office’s finish, that they went looking for the practice behind it, and have recently contracted WP on a similar development. “All in all, the project has been a real success,” Leo concludes. 
