Carshalton War Memorial

Carshalton, Sutton

The brief to DMWR was to prepare a full planning application for NHS S&M PCT for the redevelopment and partial conversion of Carshalton War Memorial Hospital into 13 residential units.
The submitted application proposed the partial demolition of the existing buildings currently on the site and the retention of the remaining original building and conversion into a residential development.
The proposed development represents the sensitive and sustainable redevelopment of a derelict former-hospital adjacent to Carshalton Park. The proposal retained and restored the original building and removed the later, unsympathetic, single-storey additions that were added piece-meal over the lifetime of the hospital. These alterations served to create an improved relationship between the building and the park across a new landscaped exterior space.
