Grade II property transformation to home and personal library
Lewes, East Sussex
Our client approached us with a unique project involving their Grade II listed property in Lewes. The property, which originally served as a shop with a dwelling above, presented several challenges and opportunities for transformation. Their vision was to obtain listed building approval for a change in use, transitioning it into a fully residential space. Additionally, they sought to replace the existing shop windows with a design that offered superior acoustic properties, enhancing the overall quality of everyday life within the property.
The most significant aspect of this renovation project revolved around the conversion of the medieval basement into a personal library space. This transformation required careful consideration of not only creating a comfortable living area but also ensuring the care of the books it would house.
