“Contemporary residential block in Clerkenwell designed by former Conran Director” in London by Doone Silver Architects

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

Article source: Doone Silver Architects 

Located in the heart of Clerkenwell, 63 Compton Street is a four-storey apartment  building, created for Nord Development. Replacing a 2-storey electrical substation,  the scheme adjoins a listed former public house and responds sensitively to the constraints  of a conservation area. From the street, the building ‘reads’ as a 3-storey  structure; the fourth storey is set back from the street, concealed behind a brick  parapet and creating a generous terrace.
