Project Description

Defoe Road, London

The project involved the conversion of a derelict Victorian warehouse into a modern two bedroom home. Following years of neglect the original timber roof trusses had deteriorated and were replaced with new steel trusses designed to work with the revised two storey layout.  At ground floor level we designed several new structural openings and detailed repairs to the original masonry to help stabilise the building and secure its future.
