Haringey Housing, Finsbury Road

A sensitive response to the site and context whilst maximising the development potential of this existing property to provide much needed housing for the local authority.

This end of terrace former shop with flat above had been disused for a number of years. We worked with the existing fabric of the building to create a spacious 3-bedroom home for the local authority as part of a series of projects to provide additional housing in the borough. The project is within a conservation area and we have retained the Victorian decoration and signage to the original shopfront as a marker to the former history of the building. The kitchen overlooks the street and the new front garden spaces for the home and a new single storey side extension creates a bin and cycle store to the front and single bedroom to the rear of the property. New openings to the rear are created to give better access to the garden and to flood the interior with natural light. The project is compliant with the London Plan and the Technical housing standards, nationally described space standard.
