Addition and extension transforms Victorian piano factory into luxury residences

The project involved three phases; a 5-storey side extension, the vertical addition of two floors above the existing building and construction of a new basement. The main extension used steel frame, which was given lateral stability with moment resisting column to beam connections. The foundation used steel columns supported on large capping beams on multiple piles.
