Originally constructed in the 19th Century as a chapel, Wyndham Hall, in the centre of Plymouth, had been empty for decades and had become a magnet for squatters and anti-social behaviour.
We had a vision of transforming the building into a number of self-contained multiple occupancy apartments for working professionals and students.
As with our other projects, we knew that exceptional design from the outset would be key to delivering a successful outcome. The building has been split into 6 separate apartments, each containing either 4 or 7 rooms. Each apartment has its own large communal space for cooking and socialising, with the majority of the rooms being en-suite.
The building also benefits from 1GBps broadband, which is the fastest of any shared house in the city.
We worked closely with several teams from Plymouth City Council to bring this project to life, including planning, conservation and empty homes. KHP were also able to secure an interest-free Empty Homes loan of £135,000 from Plymouth City Council and grant funding of £15,000.
