We are very pleased to announce that Putney Chapel has been shortlisted for the South London RIBA Regional Awards 2020!
The locally-listed yet derelict Gothic Revival chapel is surrounded by a common and historic cemetery; conversion to a dwelling was the only viable means of saving it. Over five years, the whole fabric and its original features were restored. Damaged stonework was repaired using Kentish ragstone and repointed in hot mixed lime. Structural damage was repaired with minimum intervention, drainage replaced with lead-lined gutters and flashings and new rooflights provided additional daylight and ventilation. A reversible mezzanine and discreetly-installed services retain the interior character. Underfloor heating and secondary glazing improved thermal performance. The belfry was also restored to working order.
