This former Edwardian school has been converted into a prestigious collection of nine new houses, 15 new build and 80 refurbished apartments in one of Islington’s most desirable quarters. Because of its expertise in restoration and conversion, Liz Lake Associates was commissioned to help ensure the sympathetic refurbishment of the three original Edwardian buildings married with the contemporary design of the new build apartments and houses, to create a unique living environment within the established parish of Barnsbury.
Liz Lake Associate’s involvement in design of this prestigious conversion scheme included the development of bespoke courtyard gardens set within a predominantly hard landscape scheme which responded to the site’s immediate context. A contemporary water feature is located within the centre of the scheme which creates a unique pedestrian friendly core.
With all of the 104 houses and apartments reserved, Barnsbury Place is now an established and highly sought after residential address in Islington. The multidisciplinary team at Liz Lake Associates was delighted that this outstanding development won the top accolade for the Best Conversion in the Evening Standard Homes & Property Awards.
