We have completed this refurbishment of a building in the heart of trendy Shoreditch in London. The property is arranged over seven floors and contains commercial units on the four lowest, with a loft style apartment above, followed by an exquisite duplex-penthouse with a roof terrace at the very top. Shoreditch is no longer up and coming; it is already here, it is alive and it is buzzing. This part of London has been gradually transformed from an arty but gritty neighbourhood into one of the capital s most desirable areas without having lost its charm. It was our aim to capture this special moment in time. The building sits in a conservation area and was used as offices. We have maintained the historical facade, refurbished a large existing skylight, exposed and enhanced some of the raw and industrial characteristics of the building and juxtaposed them with a very contemporary material palette. Unique conversions such as the Shoreditch Church Penthouse demonstrate that it is feasible to provide meaningful 21st Century living spaces whilst maintaining the embodied energy of an existing building.
