No. 127 Glenarm Road is a 3 storey end of terrace property located near to the junction with Chatsworth Road. The existing roof is a ‘butterfly\/London roof’ with central valley gutter and front parapet typical to the victorian housing stock in the area. Hackney planning have a policy to generally resist mansard roof extensions. The householder was keen to extend the house upwards to create a master bedroom with ensuite and external terrace. We set the front of the mansard back to minimise visibility from the street and to provide a small external front roof terrace. The front was fully […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

Following the transformation of the Edmonton County School Bury Campus entrance, Hardcastle Architects were appointed to re-model the Cambridge Campus library. The library is a well-lit double height space that was originally used as a gym. There was (just) sufficient\u00a0headroom\u00a0to insert a new mezzanine level to provide additional reading and study space and increase the amount of shelf space for books. The new mezzanine and stair are fabricated from slim steel sections that remain exposed with a durable paint finish.\u00a0The glazed balustrade and book shelves are arranged to provide good supervision from the librarian’s desk.\u00a0Perforated timber panelling was used for […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

This new-build mixed-use project provides a mix of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom dwellings over 3 floors to provide 4 no. dwellings and a separate B1 business unit at ground floor level on a restricted urban infill site.

Hardcastle Architects were commissioned by the Edmonton County School in January 2012 to re-design the entrance, reception, and staff spaces for their Bury Campus site. The intention was to re-lay out the spaces and provide an open welcoming reception with good quality work spaces for the administration and teaching staff. The building was stripped back to its structure and the majority of services removed. Asbestos was also identified and safely removed. The work was successfully completed on time and budget to a high standard of finish and handed back to the school in time for the second half of the […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

The existing house is a period\u00a04 storey terraced house in Hackney East London.\u00a0The householder approached us to re-model the entire house suitable for contemporary city living. A number of proposals were looked at re-organising the house to various extents. The final proposal shifts the stair to the rear rising through a\u00a0full height lightwell using screen printed glazing to filter views and daylight in and out. A top floor solarium is\u00a0added with external terrace for private city sun bathing during the summer months. All of the interior is fully re-modelled and contemporary in style to\u00a0suit current lifestyles. Private client<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

Hardcastle Architects became involved in this project a number of years ago when the Truman Brewery was mainly unused and before the majority of the re-development was carried out as seen today. The original cafe founders approached us to set up the cafe putting an initial design and layout together and arranging the installation of the basic services, facilities and finishes. The cafe has gone through a number of changes since and continues to enjoy success.<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>
