Islington Flat

This refurbishment of a north London flat creates an open plan kitchen and living room with a new separate bedroom to the rear. The internal area measures just 36 sqm and it forms part of a Grade II listed crescent in Islington, built in 1860. Many of the townhouses were subsequently converted to flats in the 1970’s.

Low quality twentieth-century doors, shutters and architraves were replaced with period panelled joinery throughout. This was complemented with new carrara marble fireplaces and a kitchen in matching marble.

A minimal approach is taken to detailing and colour in the kitchen to create clean and contemporary surfaces that do not detract from the original ornate features of the room.

Cornices were carefully repaired, with layers of paint removed to reveal the plaster detail. Heavily varnished and damaged original floorboards were sanded and soap stained to restore their original character. A compact slate tiled bathroom features underfloor heating with fog free mirrors.
