A little gem in the Canonbury Conservation Area frames views of an easterly sky

Glazed Facet Extension  | Architects for Islington | Canonbury Conservation Area

A faceted glazed structure provides a simple concept for a new extension to a Canonbury townhouse. A series of angles provide a rich sculptural form which is developed further to define the new garden lounge extension. The angles to the facade provide a notional subdivision for the different functions within the space which in turn inform the language of facade and the extent of privacy to the rear.

A rear outrigger added to a townhouse in the Keystone Conservation Area

Keystone Townhouse  | Architects for Islington | Kings Cross, London

The house was in a significant state of disrepair. forresterarchitects secured planning permission for a rear outrigger to the Keystone Conservation Area. To provide a reasonable level of accommodation the reconfiguration of the house will be necessary. A new bedroom was added to the second floor to replace the existing master bathroom. It will be necessary to relocate the sanitary provision of the house elsewhere without compromising the existing floor plan. The new rear outrigger extension will provide accommodation for a new shower room and a new bathroom. The extension will be entered from the existing stairwell and accessed from each half landing.

A fine Islington townhouse in Canonbury is being refurbished and enlarged by forresterarchitects. A new large kitchen is being extended on the first floor to form a largely glazed orangery. With unrestricted views to the rear. There is an opportunity to provide a large picture window arrangement. We are currently working on feasibility studies on the configuration of the glazed panels which will be arranged to respond to the rich variety of windows to the rear facade.
