The Old Smithy, Ashburton

RSA have obtained planning approval for the redevelopment of a two storey building in St Lawrence Lane into offices.

The building was previously used as a Blacksmiths workshop and is currently in a state of disrepair and in urgent need of modernisation and refurbishment.

The project includes a new private working office with showroom and storage facilities.The showroom has been designed to showcase mix of quality paints, wallpapers and fabrics, alongside a range of furniture, lighting, art, antiques and decorative items sourced from around the world.

Extensive yet sensitive remodelling of the historic fabric of the building has created a comfortable and stimulating working environment with high natural light levels and insulation.

A new roof has helped maximise working space with a double height void allowing natural light to flood the building.
