Marek Wojciechowski Architects were appointed to prepare proposals to redevelop the land to the rear of 1-3 Britannia Street, a historic warehouse, in a courtyard bound by Britannia Street, Wicklow Street and King’s Cross Road in the London Borough of Camden. The two storey warehouse consisted of a former mirror workshop which was in need of reconstruction and redevelopment. MWA have delivered an attractive, modern and sustainable commercial development with a low environmental impact. The scheme will safeguard the site for employment use and deliver a high quality design that draws on the heritage of the area.
The entrance foyer and atrium became a design feature, utilising a new folding roof to introduce natural light to a scheme. A flexible gallery space will also be provided in the basement.
The selected materials will include high quality exposed brickwork, aluminium framed glazing and zinc roofing to reference the site’s former industrial use to the external face. Internally; a palette of dark steel, frameless glazing exposed masonry and metal deck flooring, polished concrete and exposed services ensure a modern and timeless look to all levels.
