Old Wheatsheaf House, Arundel
Arun District Council, BN18
Haines Phillips Architects were appointed in 2019 to design the internal and external alterations of our clients' Grade II listed 18th century family house in the Arundel Conservation Area to make the house more suitable to the lifestyle of their young and growing family.
Our proposals included the removal of the greater part of the low quality 20th century alterations to the building in order to preserve and enhance the original elements of the building. A new staircase replacing the existing, and subtly arranged new internal partitions create a layout better suited to modern family living and to allow for future adaptation that would not affect the original listed building fabric.
A number of windows and doors will be replaced to restore the proportions of the original building and to accommodate the creation of a new terrace at ground floor level.
We have worked closely with our clients to prepare the detailed design and specification of the interior joinery, staircases and other elements. Use of the 3D measured building survey information has allowed us to design the new building elements so that they can be seamlessly integrated in to the original building fabric.
We obtained listed building and planning consent in February 2020 and the building works are expected to be completed in early 2021.
