Semi-permanent external café at Grade I listed St Martin-in-the-Fields church
The elegant, shingle clad rooftop extension crowns an existing warehouse, creating a new identity for the building which is home to a variety of creative businesses in Hackney. The ground floor and basement have been converted into a café and restaurant space, adding to the vibrancy of Mare Street and increasing its appeal to tenants.
The new rooftop storey will create a high-quality working environment for a fashion studio that is naturally ventilated and evenly lit by north facing roof lights, whilst externally swift boxes and a green roof provides new habitat. The sensitive and contemporary design sits lightly on the existing building and is set back from the edge creating a wrap around roof terrace with panoramic views across London for entertaining clients.
The project is under construction and due to be completed in 2020.Expand
