INTRODUCTION

Originally built in circa 1880 as a family home the external architecture of Springfield Lodge in Hertford  is typical of the late Victorian period.

The house had been used as student bed-sits and had become institutionalised, scruffy and generally un-cared for by occupiers and owners with the bare minimum of repairs and protection to the building and original features. Design constraints particular to the site included: a steep gradient across the site, a finite amount of space for construction works and the location within a Conservation Area.

The site was successfully converted into seven spacious 2 and 3 bedroom apartments by City & Country in 2002 and it won a number of prestigious awards including:

  • The WhatHouse? Bronze Award for Best Renovation in 2002
  • The Evening Standard Award for Best New Apartment in 2002

The following is an extract from the judges report:

"Careful planning of the existing space has seen the creation of efficient layouts, which retain much of the original character and proportions of the rooms within the house. This is a gem, being the result of much thought, skill and innovation to renovate this building and bring it forward to create modern accommodation in a traditional setting."

Testimonial
"City & Country demonstrate exceptional care when restoring and breathing new vitality into their historic building projects. Their approach is exemplary."

Professor Robert Tavernor, BA, Dip Arch, PhD, RIBA, Professor Robert Tavernor Consultancy
