Rooms above a former photographic studios in Maidenhead could be turned into flats if the Royal Borough grants planning approval.
Knott and Shepherd Partnership wants to create a pair of one-bed flats at Raymond Thatcher Photography in Queen Street.
The application includes the construction of a three storey rear extension and the change of use of the first and second floors and roof space from commercial to residential.
The site has been empty since September last year with staff now working from home.
Renowned photographer Raymond Thatcher ran his business from the town centre, first in King Street and then Queen Street, for 54 years before he passed away in January last year.
A decision is due by July 3.
