On a spectacular site in the Borough of Richmond opposite the entrance to Hampton Court Palace grounds and next to the Grade 1 Bushy Park residential architects at 4d Studio have had their proposals for a five bedroom house and a block of 4 luxury flats granted full planning consent. The proposals are to convert the existing fire-damaged Building of Townscape Merit to a high-end house comprising extensive basement and three upper floors linked by a lift. Generous terraces and a courtyard will provide private recreational areas on this prominent site. The Lion Gate was once part of a grand design drawn up on behalf of King William and Queen Mary by Sir Christopher Wren. A period of austerity prevented the plans proceeding until later gardeners were able to lay out the Chestnut Avenue to Wren’s design and leading to the Lion Gate. These proposals will stand to one side of the Gate and offer fine views of the Park and Palace. 4D Studio have worked in Richmond for many years, This is one of several projects that as Richmond architects 4D Studio have undertaken in the Borough of Richmond.
