Decision expected on Pardey's plans for Gropius masterpiece

John Pardey Architects has revealed plans to overhaul a rare, Grade II-listed Walter Gropius gem from the 1930s – the only surviving building in the once vast Denham Film Studio in south Buckinghamshire.

The proposals, which are expected to win the go-ahead from South Bucks District Council tomorrow (8 November), are part of an outline masterplan which will see the redevelopment of the wider complex site for residential use.

Built in 1936, Gropius’ film-processing building was at the heart of Alexander Korda’s studio complex – the largest in Europe when it opened – and is now one of only four remaining structures by the Bauhaus founder left in the UK.
