The Practice has been commissioned by the Manhattan LoftCorporation and Trevor Osborne Ltd. to prepare designs for therefurbishment of the listed Sloane Building in Hortensia Roadnear Stamford Bridge.The Sloane Building was built in 1910 by T. J. Bailey for theLondon Council Education committee and it was the first purposebuilt secondary school.Since it fell out of use as a school, the building has beenthe home of Kensington & Chelsea College, however, theshortcomings of the building has driven the college to seeka strategy that would enable them to produce and occupy newpurpose designed premises.The refurbishment of the Sloane Building is therefore part ofa wider scheme that includes the relocation of the College to anew building on one of the adjacent playgrounds and a newresidential building on the other. The development of the sitein this way enables funding to be raised for the new Collegebuildings while at the same time introducing both market andaffordable residential accommodation onto what are in effectbrownfield sites.The Sloane Building is in the Edwardian Baroque style, primarilyin red and yellow brick with Portland stone dressing. It is proposedthat the reconfigured building will accommodate 42 flats ofdifferent types. Two existing side entrances will serve theaffordable provision whilst a new central entrance and lobbywill give access to the market units.The scheme also proposes an extension to the rear of thebuilding as well as sensitive reconfiguring of the roof in orderto provide one additional floor of accommodation within theexisting envelope.A Planning Application was submitted in September 2005.Manhattan Loft Corporation-Trevor Osborne LtdApproximately £8 million5,245 m 22005-Above, left: ground Floor planAbove, right: typical upperfloor planBoth plans show affordableunits in red and market unitsin bluePRINGLE RICHARDS SHARRATT ARCHITECTS Studio 11 Canterbury Court Kennington Park 1 Brixton Road London SW9 6DE T +44 (0)20 7793 2828 F +44 (0)20 7793 2829 mailbox@prsarchitects.com www.prsarchitects.com
