I acted as a project architect for the implementation of works to the listed Grade II house designed in 1938 by Bauhaus School Architect Rudolf Frankel. The works were to comprise of internal and external repairs, adaptations and new services. To hold the client’s collection of books we were asked to convert a large garage into a library. Other works included rebuilding of decaying parapet brickwork, conservation of the original metal windows, and conserving the original kitchen. We had sought a specialist opinion to confirm the original color for metalwork by commissioning the paint investigations which was then reinstated. We used also old photos and description in a contemporary journal to study the original appearance.
