Following the successful development of the neighbouring property at No. 8 Warwick Court, Marek Wojciechowski Architects were appointed to undertake a similar redesign of the Grade II listed property at No. 7 Warwick Court, for the same client. The brief proposed a change-of-use from offices to provide five new exemplary apartments. The building was transformed via the demolition of the unattractive non-original rear extension and construction of a new contemporary rear extension, set apart from the original rear façade to improve the legibility of the historic building. In addition, the scheme reinstated the original fenestration to the historic rear façade and reimagined the internal layouts across all floors.
Bespoke, louvered glass fins have been installed to the rear lightwell to ensure privacy between apartments, whilst affording generous daylight. The proximity of the building to the London Underground required complex technical solutions that achieved the demanding parameters of the London Borough of Camden design and conservation policies. Noise and vibration damping measures to the basement and superstructure ensured that all passing underground trains had minimal impact on the internal environment of the new apartments.
