Mixed-use Islington corner building scheme now on site

Our project to refurbish and extend a prominent corner building on Essex Road, Islington is now on site.

The proposal retains the ground floor and basement of the building as a Costa coffee shop. It also retains the first floor of the existing building, with internal alterations, and adds a further floor by extending the existing brick elevations along Essex Road and Pleasant Place.

A new mansard roof and window arrangement replicates to a large extent the detailing of the existing mansard, but with a set-back at the angled corner addressing the streetscape. 

The construction of the building involves a complex steel frame containing the volume of the new upper floors which will sit on the existing buildings structure.  

The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2017.
