DWD secured permission for the approval of a roof top extension to an office building in Geffrye Street, Hackney.
The property is located in the Kingsland Conservation Area and is adjacent to Grade II listed properties.
A unanimous approval of the application at Planning Committee was the result of two rounds of pre-application engagement with the Council to agree an appropriate scheme that addressed comments raised by both the heritage and design officers.
The extension in an existing urban area provides a scheme that provides the future occupiers with high quality employment space, whilst also facilitating the modernisation of the existing ground and first floor employment space. A key part of securing approval was in demonstrating the heritage and daylight and sunlight impacts were acceptable and that concerns about overlooking could be mitigated.
This application was made on behalf of 1707 Properties Limited, with the design being undertaken by Catherine White Interiors.
