Project Description

Wheal Kitty Engine House

Client: Private
Value: Undisclosed
Location: Wheal Kitty Engine House

Lilly Lewarne were approached to redesign and bring within budget an original scheme by the local Council’s architect. The engine house is Grade II listed and lengthy negotiations took place with CDC’s conservation officer that enabled us to arrive at a satisfactory scheme suitable for its use as commercial office space. Quite simply the existing external walls have been retained and renovated. A new roof as well as new windows and doors have been incorporated and designed in the traditional manner. The scheme is true to the original, except through the intervention of an independent steel frame structure internally that has a minimal impact on the historic fabric of the existing building.
