Museum House, London

The site is located on Museum Street at the junction of Little Russell Street with The British Museum to the north and New Oxford Street to the south in the London Borough of Camden.

The existing building was constructed towards the end of the 19th century and is five storeys high, plus basement.  It is currently a mixed-use property with retail use at ground floor and a combination of office and residential use on the upper floors.  The building is not listed but it is within the Bloomsbury Conservation Area.

The proposal was to convert the vacant office space on the upper floors to residential and to create a new 5th floor penthouse with terrace by way of a roof extension.  Overall this will provide a total of 1 one-bed apartment and 9 two-bedroom apartments.

Planning Consent was granted for the conversion of the upper floors and the 5th floor extension.

Works completed in October 2017.
