What we did

  • Identified and created a vibrant mixed-use development in Beaconsfield Old Town to reinvigorate a particular part of the town that had become run down and dated.

  • The site was identified when one part of it came to the market. The overall site comprised seven ownerships, mostly unknown to the client.

  • Developed a vision with the client, of a central restaurant hub, based on the front Georgian façade of a Listed building with more modern extensions to the rear to be demolished and redeveloped. This was to be surrounded by a mews type ‘off street’ development comprising retail, offices and residential conversions and new build to a very high architectural standard, all of which would enhance the aesthetics of the conservation area.



  • Purchase of seven different ownerships without any party being able to ransom the development.

  • Facilitate funding of the whole project.

  • Planning consent for demolition of Listed Victorian extensions to the rear of Georgian high street facades on the basis that they were of poor quality and not of sufficient heritage merit.

  • Planning for the large mixed-use redevelopment.

  • High quality design of the renovation of the Georgian buildings, modern links to Georgian Stables at the rear, replacement of 1970s offices and residential with a 150 cover restaurant, further retail at ground floor and flats above.

  • Total development of 15,000 sq. ft. of restaurant and retail space, 6,000 sq. ft. of offices and five flats.

  • All let and occupied by good quality local, regional and national businesses.

  • Vital new life for the high street and major benefit in terms of increasing the clients’ other property rentals and values in the area.

The innovation, project energy and experience won the day
