Glass Penthouse | Architects for Hackney | Bethnal Green, East London
forresterarchitects have completed a design feasibility study for a land-locked house in Hackney. Surrounded on all sides by other properties the only opportunity for expansion was to go up. A new master bedroom and en suite bathroom is proposed. Enclosed in a glass penthouse structure the modesty of the occupants is protected by a series of sliding translucent panels which open up to frame views across the rooftops of the city.
