Residential Development in Guildford

This Victorian house in Guildford, Surrey, had been converted into office space more than 30 years ago, however, the change in economical climate had proven financially unviable for the property’s owner.ArchitectureLIVE was appointed to establish the viability of converting the offices back to residential accommodation and was asked to carry out a feasibility study to explore the potential of converting the building back to a single or to multiple residential units.

ArchitectureLIVE presented the client with two options to convert the offices into a pair of apartments, the first using the existing building envelope and the second adding a two-storey rear extension to optimise the layout of both flats and their financial returns.

Planning permission was sought from Guildford Borough Council both for the change of use and for the extension. The project was completed and the two flats were successfully sold with a profitable return made.
