Coffey Architects has won planning for an office extension and refurbishment in Kentish Town, north London
The 5,200m2 scheme will rework the existing four-storey Imperial Organ and Piano Company factory restoring its original features including cast iron columns, steel sliding doors, and exposed timber ceilings.
Large double-glazed windows, new lighting and external breakout spaces will create a modern workspace while a large lightweight roof extension has also been added to increase the space.
Project director Lee Marsden said: ‘The scheme is simple and elegant and celebrates the best of the past alongside high-quality contemporary design. It’s been fantastic working with Newmark Properties who see the value in this sensitive approach.’
The project has started on site and is set to complete in January 2016.
