Experience the Expertise of Studio MODA Architects in Commercial to Residential Property Conversion

At Studio MODA Architects, we understand the unique challenges that come with commercial to residential property conversion projects. With our extensive experience in residential architectural services and contemporary residential design, we are here to assist you in every aspect of the process, ensuring a seamless and successful transformation.

Challenges Faced in Commercial to Residential Conversion Projects

Converting a commercial property into a comfortable and functional home requires a keen understanding of both the architectural and regulatory aspects involved. Here are some common challenges faced in such projects and how we can help overcome them:

Space Optimisation: Commercial spaces have different layouts and structures than residential properties, making it challenging to optimise the space for residential living. Our talented team excels in creating innovative floor plans that maximise space utilisation, particularly for the habitable spaces, ensuring a comfortable living environment.

Regulatory Considerations: Converting a commercial property into a residential one involves navigating through various complex planning permissions and building regulations issues. Studio MODA Architects have ample experience as renovation architects in this conversion sector, including working within conservation areas, gaining listed building planning approval, and designing within protected heritage green belt and AONB sites. We guide Clients through the process seamlessly to achieve favourable results.

Structural Modifications: Many commercial buildings may require significant structural modifications to meet residential requirements, such as adding or altering windows, doors, and partitions. Our skilled architects try and work with the existing structure where at all possible and assess the existing structure to seek creative solutions to maximise reuse, but if required we define the necessary modifications, that ensures compliance with safety regulations while creating a beautiful contemporary residential design solution.

Infrastructure and Services: Converting a commercial property into a residential space involves intricately planning for mechanical and electrical services. Our experience coupled with close relationships with M&E consultants allows us to seamlessly integrate these services into the design, ensuring desirable, comfortable and functional living environments.

Conversions as Sustainable Solutions

Repurposing commercial buildings also reduces the need for new construction, which in turn minimises the environmental impact associated with new build properties. The conversion of buildings allows the reuse of the fabric and structure with its inherent embodied carbon, reducing material waste, thereby creating more sustainable dwellings with optimised thermal, light and sound performance.
