NORTHDOWN

HOUSE

Islington, London

Commercial Redevelopment
COMPLETED EARLY 2009

The scheme proposes extensions to the top and rear of the building and provides upgraded office space and a refurbished entrance on Northdown Street.

 

The floor plates have been redesigned to improve efficiency, relocating the service core and stairs have been combined in order to reduce circulation within the floor plate and provide for access to the two new upper floors. The proposal is to increase the mass of the building up to 5 storeys with an extension at roof level comprising two additional floors.

 

The new roof levels are of contemporary design complementing the hierarchy of the original front façade. The project won the New Dwellings Category at the Camden Building Quality Awards 2009.
