Waldegrave Road
The site was the former Waldegrave Arms pub and garden in the quiet Thames side residential suburb of Teddington. The Waldegrave Arms is locally listed and a popular local landmark but occupied a rather isolated position in the streetscape. The proposal was to retain and expand the fabric of this building, keeping bar and restaurant use at ground and basement levels and converting the upper storeys into residential use. The garden was long and thin bounded by roads on two sides and a railway along a third and included a number of protected mature trees. Planning consent was granted in early 2008 for 22 residential flats arranged in an intricate plan that retained the architectural pre-eminence of the locally listed building, repaired the streetscape and reconciled the conflicting demands of protected trees, on site surface parking and amenity space whilst respecting the scale and character of the area.
