The future of a historic 18th century building will be discussed by Royal Borough planning councillors on Wednesday.
The grade two listed building at 4 to 5 Park Street, Windsor was built as a house but has been used as offices for more than 100 years. For many years it was home to solicitors Lovegrove and Eliot.
An application to turn it into four two bedroomed flats, reconstructing part of the rear ground floor area, will be considered by Royal Borough planning councillors when they meet at the nearby Guildhall.
They are expected to refuse the application on the advice of their officers.
There is no objection to the building - which is opposite the 2 Brewers pub - becoming a house again. But officers believe dividing it into flats would destroy its historic form, wrecking the relationship of the rooms to each other.
