The existing warehouse is located in an area of Newport know as Little London, sitting on the West side of the main canal running through the centre of Newport.
The warehouse a locally listed landmark and dates back to the industrial revolution. Our design retains the prominent Dutch Gables to the South elevation and the less imposing East-facing façade.
the site is at present occupied by a former warehouse with its supporting offices on a plot extending to 0.22 hectares (0.56 acres).
Planning Consent has been obtained for demolition of a section of the existing building and conversion of the remainder of the existing structure to form 21 residential units, along with 23 car parking spaces. It is considered that the flats will be ideally suited to resale into the local market, or for retention for their income-producing potential.

Planning Permission has been granted by the Isle of Wight Council under ref: P/O 2398/12-TCP/06124/H, dated 24th December 2012, for demolition of a section of building; alteration, extension and conversion of redundant industrial building to form 21 residential units to include associated access, parking, cycle and refuse stores, landscaping and amenity areas, subject to conditions.

Typically, each one-bedroom flat will comprise Entrance Hall, Living Room, Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom with WC. Each two-bedroom flat will comprise Entrance Hall, Living Room, Kitchen, Two Bedrooms, En-suite Bath/Shower room with WC and family bathroom with WC.
The Planning Consent allows for 23 car parking spaces, along with landscaping, bike and bin stores and communal areas.

The extended elements avoid any replication of the existing architecture, providing a clear distinction between the old and new. This is achieved in physical form as well as through a careful choice of material pallet. The flat roofs have been designed to incorporate a Sedum roof covering, taking into account the elevated views of the site from the various surrounding vantage points, as well as from within the existing building.
