Union Wharf, Islington

In the heart of the Islington conservation area beside the canal a small, dingy courtyard has been replaced by a two storey extension to the existing lock house.   There were severe building constraints as the structure is restricted in height to that of a neighbouring listed boundary wall.  The solution has been to dig down to half basement depth to create a new en-suite bedroom above which is a glorious sunroom with a large fully retracting glazed rooflight.
