The Blockmakers Arms

 

Private House

Hackney, London

 

 

The Blockmakers Arms is a Grade II listed mid-nineteenth century former public house located within the Regent's Canal Conservation Area. The building forms the end of a terrace of three-storey townhouses and enjoys a spacious private courtyard with mature trees. The brief was to combine and enlarge the existing ground and first-floor flats into a five-bedroom single-family house. The access to the self-contained second-floor flat forming part of the property has been redesigned.

 

Four new interlocking brick volumes accommodate additional bath- and bedrooms. The tone and texture of the proposed façades is informed by the existing side and rear elevations of the main building. The design introduces a subtle playfulness through set-backs and steps between individual volumes.

 

The scheme gained Planning Approval and Listed Building Consent in August 2018. Construction is due to start in 2019.
