GENERAL CONVERSION AND EXTENSION OF LISTED PROPERTY
La Preference was conceived in the Victorian era as a showcase dwelling. It was subsequently converted into a resindential children’s home until its closure in 2013. The design challenge was to try to assimmilate some of the inappropriate extensions and to provide extra facilities, such as an indoor swimming pool and gymnasium. The designs sought to focus around the central octagonal tower, which was allowed to dominate both the house and landscaping designs.
