The property is a handsome three-storey mid-terrace building with basement located on the eastern side of Caledonian Road within the Barnsbury Conservation Area in the London Borough of Islington.
The whole building is currently occupied by a law firm.
The proposal aims to change the office commercial uppers into a residential duplex unit with a separate entrance.
The site is tightly constrained by the proximity of surrounding buildings. The design is a sensitive response to its immediate context, restricted by competing needs for daylighting, views and privacy.
The palette of materials are carefully selected; with Yellow Stock Bricks providing a sympathetic approach to the local character of the area, complemented beautifully by the two-storey dark Crittall screens that help to flood the interiors with an abundance of natural light.
