Threefold Architects

  • A rosey place to live

Threefold have completed the extensive restoration, conversion and extension of two derelict late-19th century former commercial buildings in North London, creating four new apartments for contemporary urbanites.

The shared, external area between neighbouring properties was conceived as a ‘rose garden’, a space for social interaction and private amenity. The material palette of red brick, red zinc, pink lightweight metalwork and cork cabinetry was selected to reflect this core concept. 

Work was carefully undertaken to restore the building’s original decorative elements and convert its abandoned commercial spaces into four much-needed high quality 2-bedroom apartments. The sensitive site was developed whilst maintaining operations of the retail unit at ground floor level and the spacious apartments were created through smart reconfiguration of the existing internal spaces, the addition of a second storey extension and zinc-clad dormers at roof level.
