Cullinan wins consent for turbines in Islington conservation area - image

  • Comment
Edward Cullinan Architects has won permission for what could be London's first set of wind turbines in a conservation area, having picked up full planning consent.

The turbines form part of the redevelopment of a site on the Regent's Canal in Islington - adjacent to the practice's existing office.

The redevelopment includes 12 new apartments and the conversion of an existing 19th-century foundry into a new office for the practice.

The wind turbines are part of a strategy that aims to meet the mayor of London's strict new rules on new developments achieving a 20 per cent energy use from renewable sources.

The single 3m turbine will provide 30 per cent of the energy for the new office, while the four 'vertical axis turbines' will service the energy needs for the apartments.
