A collaboration between InsideOut and Forge Architects, this project consisted of the conversion and extension of an existing office building in Borough to create nine new residential apartments, including a Penthouse unit with dramatic views of the London skyline.
Working with the existing fabric as much as possible, a number of winter garden balconies were cut into the existing building envelope, flooding the apartments with light. This design team sought to make this an exemplary project on how to efficiently re-purpose inner London buildings for residential use amid a clamour for quality housing in the city.
The rooftop extension to this existing building required a complex retrospective installation of a new steel frame through the building. As part of the core design team, InsideOut worked very closely with the appointed consultants and main contractor on delivering this ambitious conversion and interior fit-out.
