PROJECT: Residential | Private Home

CONTRACT: Minor Works with Contractors Design

TEAM: Dickson Architects

Summary: An extension to the original Peter Barber Architects unique mews development in Islington. The extension provides the owner with a double height space within the property & an additional living area in the loft space.

The properties access constraints required a solution that could be prefabricated and then erected on site. Due to this requirement we worked closely with the architectural team & our Structurally Insulated Panel Supplier (SIPS) to create the structural roof that was prefabricated off site & installed within one week onsite. This speed of this Modern Method of Construction helped us get watertight quickly and avoid disruption to the homeowner who remained in-situ throughout the refurbishment works.

The exterior is clad in zinc panelling with a number of unique details that the installers & architect implemented to give this installation a clean & minimalist finish to the cladding.

Internally the property has had a new kitchen installation, staircase design & shadow gap detailing introduced throughout.
