A new Chapel conversion and Extension in Drayton Somerset.
These drawings have been prepared for the change of use and conversion of an existing chapel.
Change of use from chapel to a residential home.
This existing chapel is modest in size but the client has seen the value in appointing Fingerprintstudios Architects to prepare drawings for a change of use application for a Chapel conversion and Extension to a residential home. This delightful chapel lies in the heart of the Somerset Levels amongst wildlife and nature reserves and will provide a lovely spot to live. This stunning detached chapel dates back to 1925 and offers a great location to enjoy this ever popular area.
Assisting discussion with Local Planning Authority.
These drawings have assisted the negotiations and discussions with the Local Planning Authority. These have formed an important part of allowing the Local Authority to assess the merits of the proposals ahead of a formal planning application. These architectural drawings will if required be adapted based on the discussions with the Local Planning Authority ahead of a full plans change of use planning application.
Change of use proposal.
We are proposing converting the vaulted double height chapel into residential accommodation with a new oak mezzanine floor with a new bedroom looking over the living space, a kitchen, shower room and living area. All the exterior walls will be lined with insulation and boarding to improve the thermal efficiency of the building. Original features like the exposed roof beams, oak frame, chapel doors and stained glass windows will become feature place in the conversion.
This chapel conversion and extension will allow this historic assett become a useful addition to the village and prevent this property becoming moth balled and slowly become dilapidated. These proposals will ensure that the chapel continues to be well loved for many years to come.
