Barbara Weiss wins planning to convert former Arts Council home

  • Comment

Barbara Weiss Architects has been given the go-ahead to convert the Arts Council’s former home into luxury flats

The building in Great Peter Street was previously revamped by Caruso St John in 2008.

The new scheme, which will create 29 flats, also includes a new extension to the rear and the addition of a penthouse providing views of Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster.

The 1907 Neo-Gothic red-brick building was originally built as the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts.

Practice founder Barbara Weiss, said: ‘It has been a tremendous privilege to work on such a fine building in the heart of historic London. We are also really pleased to be working with clients who are so keen on creating such an exceptionally high-quality residential environment.’
