A bold intervention on the rear elevation of one of Bath’s large formal Georgian terraces. The original terrace forms part of the late Georgian set piece of Cleveland Place (Goodrich C 1830), which has always followed the tradition of a formal front elevation and a varied and sometimes chaotic rear elevation. This proposal which gained planning / listed Building consent in 2015 provides a two storey mini apartment with an external balcony behind the shop unit fronting onto Cleveland Terrace. The new elements are clad with oxidised and patinated mild steel panels giving a stable black surface, but without resorting to a painted finish. The steel plate balcony balustrade is laser cut with the pattern of a traditional “Bath finial” railing pattern – but in reverse so that the holes are the shape of the traditional Bath cast iron railings.
