CAP studios

Tilehurst Road

Client:   Hicks Developments Ltd 
Location:  Reading 

A combination of new build on a vacant site and refurbishment of a neighbouring, badly mutilated Victorian house in a conservation area.  The local authority had refused an earlier scheme by others for total redevelopment before CAP took over. Our solution, a “rotunda” at the corner of the vacant site, with careful marrying of existing and new forms, increased the accommodation over the redevelopment sheme. Red brick is the dominant local material. The rendered new element compliments the stuccoed old building and
the copper roof adds a touch of colour and high quality. Architects: Jack Warshaw, Pat Baines
