This project comprises the reconfiguration and refurbishment of a former Victorian methodist building into a generous open-plan live/work unit. The architectural interventions are inserted into the main double-height space like large scale pieces of furniture, subtly delineated from the original building fabric in a series of textured materials all rendered in white. Privacy is introduced for the mezzanine spaces by the means of a large patterned stained glass window and dramatic glazed hanging stair, allowing light to flow through the series of interlinked and generous spaces.
Location: Islington, London
