THAT CAUGHT OUR EYE
Planning Approval for Grade I Listed Cottage and Ex-Rolling Stones Party House in Richmond
The owner of Wick Cottage, a Grade I listed house once owned by Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones, has received planning permission to extend the property after seeking pre-planning advice from Dyer Grimes Architecture.
With the help of architectural historian Justin Ayton, we prepared a planning application for the most protected category of building. Through a careful balance of restoration and tasteful, historically respectful additions, we successfully convinced Richmond upon Thames and English Heritage that the project would preserve, not disturb, this precious building.
The primary objective is to extend the cramped, dark kitchen to take better advantage of what is surely one of the finest views in London, overlooking the Thames and Petersham Meadows, along with numerous other additions, replacements and repairs to update Wick Cottage to modern standards without losing what makes it such a special home.
