Case Study: The Sanctuary – Battersea, London
Project Synopsis: 19th century restored church transformed into 5 unique luxury homes
The Sanctuary in Battersea, formally St Paul’s Church, has been impressively converted into four luxury apartments and one stunning new build house. With prices starting from £1.4 million, they are sure to attract discerning buyers.
A 19th century Listed Building, St Paul’s Church, has a prominent position at the top of St John’s Hill in Battersea. Current owners, The James Laurence Group, worked alongside the London Borough of Wandsworth Planning Department to agree how best this historical building should be restored and provided with a new lease of life. Clement were chosen to supply all the steel windows and conservation rooflights.
The bespoke demands of the project required Clement to use two steel window ranges, sometimes within the same aperture, to achieve the exact look required. Both W20 and EB24 were fitted to create the beautiful shaped windows which include club heads.
The new windows comply to Part L.
This project was included within a case study for English Heritage, Heritage Counts in 2015.
