Baldwin Terrace Residential Development
In 2011, we agreed a financial deal with Jerram Developments to carry out the works. The refurbishment was completed in 2012 and the residential portion of the works was completed in September 2014.
Situated on a narrow south-facing stretch along Regent’s Canal in Islington, the 1,160sqm residential development is five storeys plus a lower ground floor at canal level, and one apartment deep to enable dual aspect accommodation. Our site specific response to this canal context is to accommodate a row of four duplex units with their own front door and living spaces at street level on the ground floor, and bedrooms at canal level below which are set back behind a garden wall for privacy and security. The remaining eight units are paired on each upper floor, with the two penthouse apartments enjoying south-facing corner terraces at the top
The new building was designed to EcoHomes ‘Very Good’ at planning stage. To celebrate the waterside and sunny location, the apartments are generously proportioned with spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area. A layered south facade of sliding windows and louvres will enable the residents to passively control the internal environment and enjoy the view, air, light and sun. Besides an energy efficient thermal envelope and solar shading, a ground source heat pump fulfils the renewables requirement.
