[First look + plans + project data] Friend and Company Architects has landed planning permission to transform a former piano factory in Camden, London into a photographer’s studio
The 117m² ‘live/work’ project comprises a two-storey roof extension with two roof terraces.
Clad in an anodised aluminium ‘curtain’, the design ‘uses the latest technology to make a light prefabricated cage-structure that can be lifted into place by crane’, according to the practice.
The scheme was approved by Camden Council’s planning committee on 28 April and is expected to start on site in March 2012.
