0325 - Water Tower, Ladbroke Grove
A conversion of an existing 1930s reinforced concrete frame tower adjacent to the Grand Union Canal in north west London. The existing tower has been creatively adapted into a large residential property.
- New access core fitted with an additional two storeys at the top of the tower
- Infill of the lower floors
- Rigorous investigation into the existing structure and foundation to understand additional load bearing capacity
- Restricted site access lead to the development of a bespoke panelised timber frame which could be erected from an adjacent site
