Brady Mallalieu has won permission for this mixed-use scheme on Caledonian Road in north London
The £10 million scheme for developer Igloo, on a brownfield site next to Caledonian Road and Barnsbury Station, includes 25 low-energy homes.
The site, which Igloo purchased in October 2012, has been empty since it was compulsorily purchased as part of the Eurostar tunnelling project.
The proposed project will restore the frontage to Caledonian Road, creating a ground-floor studio space with two homes above.
Set behind the frontage, there will be a contemporary, new-build block providing 21 homes and a pair of semi-detached houses.
Robin Mallalieu, who co-founded the practice alongside soon-to-depart RIBA president Angela Brady, said: ‘A combination of new, old and restored buildings will create unique courtyard spaces that will provide a setting for new homes and workspaces’.
John Long, development director at Igloo, added: ‘400 Caledonian Road is a site of great architectural importance. We recognise the context of The Cally, the value of its restoration to local people, and the opportunity we have been given to breathe new life back into this stretch of a historic and bustling London street. Our scheme will see a new community of people living and working here, and in turn playing their own role in the wider, existing community.’
The project is due to complete in September 2014.
