Conversion and renovation of twelve maisonettes and apartments of Grade 2 listed Regency town houses on Wellington Square in Hastings. The buildings were constructed in the late Georgian period. Seven stories, wide frontages and tall rooms.
In reference to surviving drawings, it was easy to see each use for each level and floor. Kitchens, food and fuel stores at the lowest level, staff living quarters at lower ground, grand reception rooms at ground floor. Above the street level (accessed by stone stairs), family living and dining rooms at first floor, family sleeping accommodation at second and third and servants sleeping accommodation and nurseries at fourth floor. Despite housing occupants with less than sensitive approaches to building maintenance from about 1920 onwards, much of the original elements remain, and were rescued.
Approached with careful thought on how to weave into the listed fabric the requirements of a modern apartment, as well as extensive discussion with the conservation team and the planning department.
