Railway Hotel Apartments, Nailsworth, Gloucestershire
The Grade II listed Railway Hotel predates the railway which was built in 1867 and although much altered internally and with a clumsy stair tower added to the rear in the 1970’s, it retained two fine stone elevations.
Marshall & Kendon Architects obtained Planning and Listed Building Consent to bring the existing basement into use and to convert the upper floors into flats. The rear extension was demolished and replaced with a new one and the existing building thoroughly repaired – it’s stone parapets and chimney stacks reinstated and a new “hanging” stone stair installed in the old stairwell.
Four floors provide two maisonettes and two flats. To the rear, a new “curtilage building” provides two further apartments and covered parking. In the landscaped communal garden bordering the river, a timber clad building houses a bio-mass boiler providing heating for the whole project.
