Tradition was the main concern for Paddock Johnson Partnership architects, when they were charged with restoring and converting a grade two listed building in the historic village of Port Sunlight, Merseyside. Hesketh Hall, a former Royal British Legion club, had fallen into serious disrepair when Port Sunlight Village Trust decided to have it converted into luxury apartments.
Due to the need to maintain the historical aesthetic, the company specified Rosemary Clay Classic roof tiles, Arris Hip Tiles and clay Valley Tiles from Redland to replace the roof.
Speaking about the project, a representative from the Paddock Johnson Partnership, said: “We had to completely strip the existing roof, fortunately the structure was in good condition. We put down new insulation, felt and re-battened the structure to bring it up to current Building Regulation standards.”
Reflecting on the completed project, the representative said: “The building looks really good, the village trust is very happy with its appearance and how it fits in with the surrounding Architecture. A lot of that is down to the appearance of the roof. The use of Rosemary tiles with clay Valley Tiles in the same colour and Arris Hip Tiles definitely adds to the character of the building.”
