Islington. Conversion of two Grade II listed office buildings to residential.

Frontline Architects were appointed to provide planning and development advice in connection with two Grade II listed buildings located in Islington.

The buildings had been used as commercial offices. We proposed to convert them into two high-end family houses.

The negotiations with the Islington Planning and Conservation Departments focused on preserving and enhancing the existing fabric coupled with modern ‘light touch’ interventions.

Islington Council agreed that a strategy of sensitively adapting the buildings by the introduction of reversible modern elements was making the ​​successful long term preservation of these buildings more likely. Planning Consent and Listed Building Consent ​were ​eventually granted for the conversion of the two listed buildings into luxury houses.

The subsequent development involved full refurbishment of the building fabric and restoration of external garden areas.
