THE ROTUNDAProject Specification: Sector: Residential Client: Clayhouse Properties Ltd Location: Godalming, Surrey Project Value: £1.2m Timescale: 28 weeks
The Rotunda sits in a prominent position in Godalming town centre. Formerly part of a congregational church, the Grade II Listed Bargate stone building is of historic interest to the area. Local architects C7 developed a design concept to enable the successful conversion to two high-end apartments, whilst embracing the challenging shape of the building and listed building restrictions. A joint venture between two developers, Buildwise were contracted to undertake the restoration and refurbishment programme, as they needed a contractor with the experience of working sensitively with old buildings, and who had the skills to tackle any unforeseen issues that often arise with buildings of this nature. Buildwise’s craftsmen restored the key period features while accommodating the requirements for modern living. The two apartments boast the best of the period features whilst being a unique place to live in an enviable location.
