ST. Peter’s Place
Bath, with its beautiful sandstone buildings and rolling slopes rising from the river Avon, is the epitome of an elegant English Georgian city. St. Peter’s Church is considered to be a ‘gateway’ building on a major route into the city.
This redundant church was a prime property for converting to educational use in the early 1980’s. MHD originally developed it as a language tuition centre for foreign students. Some 15 years later we were consulted again, for a further conversion of the building into 19 residential apartments.
The cleaning and retention of principal elements of decorative stonework, door and window openings, contributed to the positive response from the planners.
