In September 2014, the architect team won the prestigious Architects' Journal Retrofit Award. The blend of original features with a crisp, modern interior design along with complete retrofitting of the building with modern appliances and energy-efficient technology proved to be a winning combination for the judges.
THE APPROACH Original wrought iron gates secure the property on the street, with a high tech intercom system connecting visitors to each apartment, with phone and video link. There is a well kept communal garden area between the gated entrance and glass doors where there is also another intercom system. From here you enter into the central communal courtyard area, which originally had an atrium roof, but has since been developed so that
all the residential units can be directly accessed from this space.
