Town House, Winchester
The project is a Winchester town house of considerable architectural complexity and historical importance. The oldest surviving structure within the curtilage of the multi-phase building, is the two-bay undercroft of 12th Century date. This forms the basement of a part of the house known to the present owners as the ‘Mint’. This undercroft is a feature of outstanding architectural importance in the area.
CFW Architects received Listed building consent for the replacement of an existing glazed courtyard infill, the construction of a new independent garden room and alterations to the existing pool and landscaping. The challenge has been obtaining the listed buildings consent for the garden room in the building’s curtilage, due to the historical importance of the ‘mint’. Construction is due to start on site in the coming weeks with the first phase being the alterations to the pool and courtyard infill.
