The Drill Hall

Development planning

Working alongside Sergison Bates architects, AZ Urban Studio has secured planning permission for the redevelopment of The Drill Hall, a prominent yet heavily constrained site located adjacent to Turnham Green, in the London Borough of Hounslow.

The development comprises the creation of a substantial basement extension, including the insertion of two mezzanine levels, to create an additional 520SqMK of B1 commercial floorspace. Externally this includes various enhancements to the roof, fa├žades and forecourt. The development facilitates the creation of a multimedia studio, with a focus upon sound recording and sound editing and production.

AZ Urban Studio led the preparation and submission of a full planning application. This included advising on all planning and heritage matters, including managing all sub-consultants. The development will result in the re-use and refurbishment of a vacant building that contributes positively to the conservation area, and the expansion of the commercial space at the site will facilitate occupation for a medium-sized creative industries business.

Planning permission was secured successfully under delegated powers.
