Ilford Hill

We were given the task to refurbish the Almshouses and Chaplain’s House of The Abbess Adelicia Charity Chapel.  The buildings are distinguished examples of Arts and Crafts Movement architecture and design, linked to a central medieval chapel, creating a secluded courtyard off the busy Ilford Hill.

The work consisted of the internal remodelling and structural works to form 7 flats, while restoring the many inherited features including the original joinery, doors, windows, ironmongery, parquet flooring, staircases and chimneypieces, and installing subtle contemporary services.  Continuous collaboration took place with the Conservation Officer to restore the brick and lime render façades and external features. The original Yorkstone paving was re-laid to achieve flush entrance thresholds.

The much deserved works to these buildings which were on the English Heritage Buildings at Risk Register, provide necessary residential accommodation whilst maintaining their rich history of over 850 years in the centre of Ilford.
