Apex Apartments

Rooftop extension, London

Project Date: 2013
Client: Private
Status: Planning permission granted
Location: Shoreditch, London

This rooftop extension will provide two additional floors on top of a Victorian warehouse in Shoreditch, East London, accommodating space for five apartments.


The distinguishing element of the extension is a slender steel frame; whilst relating to the existing facade rhythm, it acts as structural exterior or "exo-skeleton" for the new floors.


The five apartments range between one and three bedroom units, featuring double aspect orientation and roof terraces.
