Hop studios was a late Victorian building on ground and first floors with highly decorative brick facades facing onto Jamaica Road. In the 1980's the building was converted into offices and a a shallow pitched mansard roof with dormer windows forming a second floor was added to the building.
Our client Mirus homes purchased the building with office use and an application for change of use from commercial to residential under permitted development was submitted by prier notification to London borough of Southwark and was granted.
The ground and first floor were converted to residential and a planning application was submitted to remove the roof and erect a second floor with brick work matching the decorative facade and under a new mansard roof with dormer windows. This was refused planning permission by London Borough of Southwark but won on appeal. The Project was completed in February 2017
The building contractor used for this project was Reddington Construction.
