Old Street Islington, London

MWA were appointed to explore the development potential of this existing five storey retail and commercial property, situated within the St. Lukes Conservation Area and located close to Old Street underground station. Proposals involved the extension to the property for residential use. Through the remodelling of the existing steel frame, an additional two storeys have been added, one in masonry to match the existing, with the top storey set back from the front façades and clad in zinc.

Works included the partial demolition of the building, removal of the existing flat roof and retention of the lower floors and masonry façades. The existing core has been extended to suit and also includes a new lift facility.

The existing interiors have been stripped back to the masonry shell exposing the brickwork, which combined with the visible steel frame, provide contemporary industrial spaces.
