• MWA prepare a pre-planning application for a family home at Pilgrim’s Lane

    14 January 2022

    MWA have prepared proposals for the renovation and extension of a family home located within the Hampstead Conservation Area. The site is situated within a diverse vernacular which has developed largely in the Victorian era and 20th century. The existing building is arranged over four floors and is currently divided into two units. MWA’s proposal includes converting the property into a single dwelling, new double and single storey side extensions and a basement complete with a gym and swimming pool.

    The proposal sympathises with the existing building’s character and vertical rhythm while rationalising the fenestration across the front and rear elevations. The proposed design reinstates the original corner of the property by introducing a gap with the neighbouring house. A local material palette of red brickwork, red pantiles and deep timber reveals is proposed to enhance the Arts and Crafts character of the property with a contemporary approach.

  • St John's Wood House gains planning permission

    13 January 2022

    We are delighted that our proposal for a substantial basement extension and full refurbishment of a family home in St John’s Wood has been granted planning approval by Westminster City Council. Situated within the St John's Wood Conservation Area, the proposal presents a unique opportunity to create more spacious and adaptable spaces with an emphasis on open plan living, generous ceiling heights, natural light and modern finishes. The new 1,500 sq. ft basement provides a gym, family media room, and yoga space fronting a generous lightwell. Locating the plant and utility rooms within the centre of the basement plan has helped to maximise the living area above ground and visually connect each space with the front and rear gardens.

  • MWA submits pre-planning for a 13,000 sqft Edwardian villa in Hampstead

    12 January 2022

    MWA has been appointed on an exciting new residential project located within the Reddington and Frognal Conservation Area in Hampstead. The property is an Edwardian villa built in the early 20th century. The existing building is arranged over four floor levels and is currently divided into two units. MWA’s proposal includes re-converting the property back into a single dwelling, a new double-storey side extension and basement complete with a gym and 12m swimming pool.

    The proposed design responds to the vernacular of the conservation area with a material palette of red brick, oxblood tiles and natural stone. The use of local materials supports local trade, celebrates local craftsmanship, and affords the most sustainable solution. We are looking forward to progressing to the next stage of this project.
