Contemporary extension approved in Padstow Conservation Area

Steven Abbott Associates (SAA) have recently advised the Directors of Rojano’s (Padstow) Limited the owners of Rojano’s In The Square, a famous Italian restaurant in Padstow Conservation Area.

The restaurant is operated and owned by Michelin star chef Paul Ainsworth, whose restaurant ‘Number Six’ is also in Padstow.

The proposals involve the replacement of an awning over an outside seating area with a modern conservatory.

The architects are CAD Architects of Truro through their heritage specialist Sam Mayou.

Permission was granted following discussions with Cornwall Council and Padstow Town Council. Earlier concerns by both bodies were overcome following some amendments to the detailed design

SAA Partner, Steven Abbott, said that:

"It has been a pleasure working with Paul Ainsworth,his fellow directors and their teams on this project. The design is contemporary but sensitive to the context. Rather than go for an off the shelf pastiche, CAD’s bespoke, contemporary glass ‘box’ is a great design solution which will enhance the locale and set the standard for quality

I also applaud Cornwall Council’s case officer and Padstow Town Council for their preparedness to review the proposals with us and enable a permission to be granted"
