Rescue project of a derelict London Chapel is a finalist at RICS London awards 2019 in Building Conservation category
This project relates to two Gothic Revival Chapels, located in an historic cemetery in Putney; unused for over 30 years and in a state of dereliction. Stonework was deteriorating, the roof damaged and lead gutters stripped, causing extensive water penetration and damage. This project has rescued these crumbling Gothic Revival Chapels using traditional materials and techniques in an imaginative and subtle conversion into a small private dwelling. The design is very simple, but effective. The full project can be viewed here.
“The Chapels are a landmark, much appreciated by local people, who can now see that building in danger of falling into total disrepair is, once again, an attractive feature of this patch of Metropolitan Open Land.” (Putney Society)
