A rooftop extension to an existing six-storey building on Old Street providing a bedroom with ensuite and a roof terrace

The rooftop extension was the first of its type for the practice and it proved difficult at times - with the architect having to deal with difficult planning, legal and construction issues and site access six floors up.

The skilfully crafted Iroko cladding provides continuity between the modern roof terrace and the master bedroom.
