London Fields, E8

Our clients purchased a unit in this 1990s live-work complex with planning permission for a roof extension. They invited us to redesign and personalise the flat to complement their lifestyle.

We achieved further planning permission for our reinterpretation of the two-storey roof extension and visualised a self-contained two-bedroom flat at ground level. Highlights of the project include a sunken roof terrace connected to the upper floor with glazed elevations – it brings an abundance of natural light into the main living areas. A new central staircase divides the otherwise open plan into four distinct areas, eliminating the need for hallways.

Our scheme incorporates areas with disparate functions into a coherent layout, maximising the natural light available for each space. We also created sightlines from the living area to the sky and garden, a unique benefit the clients cherished in their previous home.
