Grade I listed and originally designed by John Nash, the facade has been reconstructed using traditional methods with lime mortar, lime stucco render, breathable paint, sourced unused brickwork, original railings and some glazing. Behind it sits a new contemporary building providing residences and amenities. Woven into the site are two existing 1960s apartment blocks with an overclad facade, and an eighteenth century, subterranean ice house. The thermally efficient fabric has low ‘Space Heat Demand’ and features good thermal mass, enhanced acoustics, renewable energy — photo voltaics, CHP, site energy network, green walls and roof, water attenuation, solar control, acoustic attenuation from tube lines, embodied energy considerations, good airtightness, limited solar gains, good surface temperature factors and MVHR ventilation with boost.
