Urban Projects Bureau unwraps Fitzrovia townhouse refurb

  • Comment

Camdem-based Urban Projects Bureau has completed the £420,000 conversion and extension of a Georgian townhouse in Fitzrovia, London

The upper floor of the townhouse - which were previously occupied by bedsits - have been reconfigured to create studio space and a three storey home.

Set within a conservation area, the 18th century building has been enlarged with the addition of a three-storey cantilevered rear extension and a light-weight roof-top pavilion and garden.

Architect’s view

Alex Warnock-Smith, director, Urban Projects Bureau

More-or-less public, more-or-less private, the Georgian townhouse is London’s most hard working architectural typology. We pushed it to its limits, adapting the typology to provide a mixed-use socially sustainable development that provides commercial spaces, residential accommodation and a three-storey family home.
