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

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."
