The Sanctuary, formerly St Paul’s Church, in Battersea, has been impressively converted into four luxury apartments and one stunning new build house. Clement were selected to supply all the steel windows and conservation rooflights for this project.
The 19th century Listed Building has a prominent position within the St John’s Hill Conservation Area of the London Borough of Wandsworth. The church had fallen into disrepair following the demise of its original use.
Clement worked closely with The James Laurence Group and the London Borough of Wandsworth’s Planning Department to sensitively restore the church, refurbishing and replacing all the leaded windows.
The bespoke demands of the project required Clement to use two steel window ranges, sometimes within the same aperture, to achieve the exact look required. Both W20 and EB24 window ranges were fitted to create the beautiful shaped windows which include club heads.
Developer Nick Laurence, co-founder of The James Laurence Group, commented: “We wanted to create something high quality but out of the ordinary and to play on the building’s idiosyncratic features. The windows supplied by Clement are unusual and make a statement whilst simultaneously satisfying the demands of the Conservation Officers. We are delighted with the end result.”
The project was selected by Historic England for its Heritage Counts case study.
