Development consists of conversion/ rebuild of the existing buildings to provide five high quality residential apartments together with underground car parking and leisure facilities.
In developing these proposals a considerable effort has been put into assessing and studying the site context, its history and constraints and the character of the Conservation Area in general.
The site is located at the western edge of Pont Street near the junction with Lennox Gardens and Beauchamp Place. That stretch of Pont Street is characterised by the presence of consequential terraces built around a century or so ago as high-class residential accommodation.
Nos 55 and 57 are part of the terrace of 6 buildings built in a style sometimes attributed as Queen Ann. The main features of this terrace are use of red brick and rich terracotta detail combined with white rendered ornamental elements. The architectural richness of the front facades is contrasted by fairly simple architectural treatment at the rear expressed in yellow brick and a steady rhythm of traditional sash windows.
The general architectural approach is based around the inherited architectural style, the buildings historical integrity and its context.
