The conversion of a large Listed building on Prince of Wales Road in the centre of Norwich entailed the creation of four dwellings with retail or restaurant facilities at ground and lower ground floor. The developer was also keen to make the most of the splendid views afforded from the upper maisonette within the building, giving scope for a penthouse accommodation.
The proposal has created a Victorian type conservatory to the roof level, giving the appearance of a very large lantern. In order to maximize the potential of the building, a new staircase was created to the rear. This allowed current means of escape requirements to be met and gave better access for occupants to their parking area in their yard to the rear.
