Within a former warehouse adjacent to Kingsland Viaduct 6 apartments were created from the existing building shell and 5 apartments created within a light-weight extension which floats above the existing historic structure.
The industrial feel of the building coupled with the ceiling volumes and generously proportioned geometric window spaces strongly suggested loft-style living spaces.
Metal louver panels articulate and control natural lighting to the building’s external envelope and irregular shaped roof lights disperse overhead natural light.
The design team and delivery of this project is led by Douglas and King Architects. For information on our processes read our blog on creative leadershio by CLICKING HERE
