Stylish conversion of three Listed buildings are up for an award

Thomas Homes Ltd

A striking collection of three Georgian Listed buildings in Berkshire, including one on the Buildings at Risk register, have recently been converted back into 53 stylish apartments.  Thomas Homes had a duty to retain and preserve the historic features of the building, so  the original timber shutters were restored and fixed in position within the shutter box as a decorative feature.  Whilst the shutters were removed for refurbishment, a timber reveal was introduced between the box sash and shutter box, onto which the secondary glazing was installed with the correct cavity to achieve the desired dB reduction.  Over 300 units were fitted to all three of the Listed Buildings. Four different Series were used to suit the various reveals and different sized primary openings across the complex.  The largest windows were 2m wide x 2.7m high and some with arched heads. Furthermore, the secondary glazing in the bathrooms at St Laurence’s Hall was glazed with obscurity glass for enhanced privacy.   As testament to the sensitive restoration, conversion and workmanship to bring these buildings back to modern day use; the development has been chosen as a finalist for the Residential Development of the Year category at the prestigious Thames Valley 2018 Property Awards.
