Listed Building restaurant extension

(click images for larger versions)

The proposal is to extend the restaurant currently on the ground floor of this Grade II Listed building up into the 1st floor former office space by inserting a stair but without cutting any existing floor beams or making any external changes.
The leaded light windows are also being repaired by a specialist.

Interesting building - originally created as a 'Mechanic's Institute' - it would appear that the tower and the steps are a later addition and originally the ground floor was open.

Proposals... stair detail - pending information on ornate balustrading...

The balustrading was eventually decided to be constructed from fretted original Thai carved panels and there are hidden LED strips under the stair nosings for safety and to add a bit of sparkle.
