Full restoration and conversion of a Victorian warehouse in Stafford into twelve mixed-sized apartments. Historically, the building would have been two separate buildings, a warehouse and adjoining house. The previous use was a Pentecostal Church and permission was granted to change the use into residential accommodation. Although the building is long, it is not very deep.
Circulation became the biggest issue as staircases would have eaten much of the marketable floor space. Two new staircases were proposed at the rear of the building. These large add-ons enabled the floor space of the warehouse to be used more efficiently. The building’s full restoration is exemplified by the main brick facade.
