Rooftop extension, London
Project Date: 2013
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.
