This Grade II listed Georgian terraced house, built over the location of a former riverside dock, had suffered extensive foundation movements.
An existing pre-war side extension was founded in the backfill of the historic dock and consequently had suffered serious settlement issues. This addition was demolished and replaced with a larger three-storey extension, extended down to basement level to match the founding levels of the original house.
The new structure was built in solid loadbearing brickwork which responds to the architecture of the house masonry walls, with deep gauged arches over the openings and blind openings, which re-imagines the architecture of the original building and the end walls of other local buildings on the river front. The new structure provides utility space at basement level, living space at ground and a new bedroom suite above. The rest of the property was carefully upgraded and repaired to reinstate period features.
