Architecture for London has completed a number of projects in Islington. We have expertise in working with listed buildings and heritage projects, and our architects understand the particular planning and conservation issues of working in the borough.

At our house extension and refurbishment in Calabria Road, Highbury, planning consent was achieved for a contemporary rear extension to a Victorian property in a conservation area. The extension features a double height space in the kitchen to create a generous new family room at the rear of the house.

Other recent Architecture for London projects in Islington include extensions, basements and refurbishments in Highbury and Canonbury N5, Barnsbury, Angel and De Beauvoir in N1, Tufnell Park N7, Crouch End N19 and Clerkenwell EC1.

Much of Islington has a consistent character, with Georgian and Victorian squares and terraces. This is due to the enormous expansion in housing in the borough in the 19th Century. This rapid development is illustrated by the population growing from 10,000 In 1801 to nearly 320,000 in 1891.

Project architects: Matt McKenna, Ben Ridley, Amrit Marway
