Refurbishment and roof extension

Planning permission has been granted to extend and refurbish this attractive former warehouse building behind Kingsland Road in Hackney. A combination of metal panels used at ground level gives an industrial feel to befit the building and context. The new roof extension will also be clad in metal panels and have large windows to benefit from the height and long views over the railway. Seen from the adjacent tracks the additions will be sharp-lined and play well against their worn and aged, but still dignified host.
