Cardinal House is a Grade II Listed building on Lymington High Street, leased by Café Nero, which has been the subject of numerous planning applications and appeals in the past.
PAD studio’s contemporary insertion provides a number of important functions in order to ensure the future use and preservation of the listed building. The development floods the interior of Café Nero with natural light, increasing the floor area and providing access to a sunny rear courtyard.
An extension of only one metre in depth has helped transform this house. A multitude of small rooms and a head height of only 2m in the semi underground basement kitchen made it feel very pokey. By lowering both the garden and the basement, together with stripping back the ground floor from the rear and then adding the glass box on the rear, our clients can now enjoy the garden from either the kitchen dining room or whilst relaxing in the sofa area above.

‘Don’t Move Impro
This house on a corner site in Bedford Park Chiswick for an overseas couple with three young children and a ‘live in’ nanny was completely refurbished in two phases. The first phase was to convert a ground floor flat with separate entrance for the nanny and the second phase was to completely re-organise the house by moving the main entrance to the southern frontage so that the family could make proper use of the garden and principal rooms by building on a large conservatory. The upper floors were also refurbished...
Two new build one-bed houses were constructed in place of an old silversmith’s workshop behind a row of Georgian houses in Angel, London. The workshop was demolished, the site excavated and the existing brick boundary walls underpinned to allow the construction of two jewel like courtyard houses.
We first met the owners Alex and Catherine in May 2014, having been recommended by a previous client. They brought to us their elegant wreck: an enormous, 8-bedroom Edwardian villa that had previously been the home of a multi-generational family. Before that it had been bedsits. All told, we were presented with the aftermath of 30+ years of neglect and disinterest. The utter magnitude of the place meant that even basic renovations were going to cost a small fortune.
