Location Lymington, Hampshire Client Private Commerical Value Undisclosed Status Completed (2014) Sector Commercial Retail Refurbishment Photography Nigel Rigden Cardinal House is a Grade II Listed building on Lymington High Street, leased by Café Nero, which has been the subject of numerous planning applications and appeals in the past. Many properties along the High Street have long thin garden plots, which are underused and difficult to access. PAD studio’s contemporary insertion provides a number of important functions in order to ensure the future use and preservation of the listed building. The development floods the interior of Café Nero with natural light, increasing the floor area and providing access to a sunny rear courtyard. Access to the property above is provided via a private roof terrace integrated into the extension. The upper floors were converted into a luxurious 3 bedroom property with views of Lymington’s rooftops and the Solent.
