Shoreditch Penthouse outside

 

Shoreditch Penthouse

An apartment occupying top two floors of an existing warehouse building on Charlotte Road in the Shoreditch neighbourhood of Hackney.

The building has been extended with an additional floor and connected to the live/work unit below to create a new residential unit on two floors.

The external envelope of the new floor has been completed with zinc panels with a strong reference to traditional mansard roof maintaining sight lines from the street and creating a contextual building within the existing urban background.

Original fabric including exposed brick walls have been kept where possible and clean uncomplicated materials were used throughout.
