A £30 million refurbishment and extension of the former Burberry factory in the heart of Hackney, London. The redevelopment of the Textile Building for client Aitch Group involves the conversion of two conjoined structures on Chatham Place, creating residential and commercial accommodation that displays clear references to the buildings’ industrial past. Completed in Summer 2014, the project houses 86 loft style apartments. A two-storey rooftop extension designed as a distinctive white rendered box with zinc detailing will create sizable penthouse apartments. At the heart of the development runs an internal street, that roots the building within its context and connects it to its surroundings.
