Storey's House, The Foundation of Edward Storey


Working with Graham Riley at Freeland Rees Roberts Architects, Marilize, worked on the alterations done to Storeys House, for the Foundation of Edward Storey. The original building was built in 1974 as a warden -controlled sheltered housing for elderly lady residents.

The building sits on a very sloping site and has two floors. As a result of the sloping site, the two floors were designed to have quite a number of level changes. In 1999, Freeland Rees Roberts Architects were appointed to do extend, improve the building complex. We included a new office accommodation, a large meeting room able to accommodate all the residents at one given time, a recreation room, a conservatory, kitchen, storage for residents and additional facilities for the disabled. Three lifts were installed opening up first floor circulation and giving disabled access to 85% of the existing building.
