Great Ormond Street Hospital, Bloomsbury

Jerram Falkus completed the refurbishment and conversion of a pair of adjoining Grade II listed Georgian townhouses for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity at Powis Place, London.

The works included a new build single-storey rear extension at ground level, refurbishment throughout and redecoration works to the external envelope.

The conversion saw a change of use from the existing on-call staff accommodation into a 23-bedroom short-term accommodation for parents of children receiving inpatient care at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. The works aimed to increase the capacity and improve the standard of this existing accommodation.

The total residential capacity of the two houses has increased from 38 to 40 persons and the number of family members that can be accommodated has doubled. The reconfigured layout also ensures that all bedrooms have access to en-suite facilities.

The two properties at Numbers 2 and 3 Powis Place that comprise the site were listed as Grade II in 1974. They are a pair of late 18th Century terraced houses and are the only remaining buildings of this type in Powis Place. The houses are located within the Bloomsbury Conservation Area.

The two houses are both 5 storeys tall and, in most respects, match one another. The stock brick street elevations are largely in their original form, comprising: round-arched entrance doorways with stucco block dressings and keystones, radial fanlights, and fielded panel doors with egg-and-dart decoration.
