A unique mixed-use project in Islington on a prominent urban block
Nestled between the historic Ware High Street and the River Lea, this mixed-use development successfully knits together the old and new built fabric to create 17 homes whilst preserving the heritage of the area.
The Grade II listed buildings that anchor the scheme onto the High Street will be sensitively converted whilst commercial space on the lower floors will enliven the High Street. To the rear a row of contemporary mews houses will lead towards a tranquil green space overlooking the River Lea.
The houses have a vertical emphasis with projecting oriel windows providing articulation and controlled views down the site. Car parking is integrated into the housing so that the central shared surface can be prioritised for pedestrians and function as an informal play space for the residents.Expand
