Old Gloucester St.
2015 - In Progress
BHA was appointed by Nilkanth Estates Limited to make proposals for a development of a former poor school in Holborn into a mixture of assembly, food and drink and new residential accommodation. The building is listed at grade II, within the Bloomsbury Conservation Area and adjacent to the Grade II* St George the Martyr Church. However only the main street-facing part is of heritage significance, meaning the designers have had more freedom to reconstruct the rear part into apartments. A new basement and a new upward extension are included in the proposals. The finished facility will include a public cafe, multi-purpose assembly hall and six one and two bedroom apartments.
