RICHMOND, SOUTH WEST LONDON
The Green is an attractive 4 Storey Grade 2 listed building overlooking Richmond Green, not far from the site of the original Royal Palace to the south.
In 2016 Snell David were instructed to obtain consents for reverting the building to residential use - it had recently been used as a warehouse and office facility by Boots the Chemist to which it was connected by an underground service tunnel to George Street. Prior to this it had been used as a residence and other commercial uses such as a café frequented by many including Virginia Woolf who lived nearby.
The building is arranged over 5 floors with original storage vaults at basement level and service quarters at 4th floor level. Consent was secured on a speculative basis for a client who subsequently sold the property to a new owner wanting to implement the approval. After a period of delay Snell David were re-engaged by the new owner to complete the onerous task of discharging a number of conditions applied to the-Listed Building Consent – this took some careful working with the Council’s Conservation Officer.
The property has been very sensitively restored with the greatest of respect to the original layout and appearance of the building which had been badly tarnished by abuse during the mid-late 20th Century. Timber wall-panelling, fireplaces and flooring were all careful retained and re-used following repair to the structure of the building and extension / lowering of the basement floor level.
The project has received a Certificate of Commendation from the Richmond Society.
