Middle Rookery House
A C16th Grade II Listed house is being brought back to it's former glory through a series of internal and external interventions and extensions. The project involves the demolition of some poor additions to the original barn house and the reconstruction of various historic elements. New replacement extensions will allow light back into the main living spaces, and provide scenic views out to the landscape beyond.
Streatham Hill Theatre
Poroban is lead Architect and a trustee of The Friends of Streatham Hill Theatre, who are campaigning to save the building and return it to use as a multi-purpose, arts and cultural venue for the community.
The Friends organised a flash mob in 2019 to promote the campaign and over 1000 people attended the event. A crowdfund was then initiated by Poroban and The Friends, which received pledges totalling of over £40,000. The funds enabled an independent study which has proven that operating the building as a leisure and entertainment venue is viable long-term proposition. Key support has been provided by The Mayor of London, Lambeth Council and The Theatres Trust.
