Flat renovation in Shoreditch London UK.

The Shoreditch Penthouse project explores the possibilities of inserting structures into a dense urban fabric by re-using roof tops of existing buildings. Four prefabricated volumetric units provide for various functions; they interlock on site to generate an integral live/work space in conjunction with the existing floor below. Throughout the project we are collaborating with Atelier One, experts in the field of modular design. Starting with a simple idea: maximization of capacity through optimization of the existing structure; we integrate new spaces whilst sharing foundation, services and circulation areas. Core principles of sustainable construction can therefore be applied from the very beginning. Finally, through off-site construction expensive site management can be kept to a minimum, whilst maintaining a high quality of craftsmanship in a controlled factory environment.
