Ripplevale Grove

Renovation and Loft Extension of a Terraced House

Barnsbury, Islington N1

A beautiful little Georgian house on what is arguably the best street in Islington.  Through a recommendation we met both owners and their Parisienne design architects: Lia Kiladis + Christine Ilex Beinemeier.  Lia and Christine had lead the project through the early stagest to planning consent and were now looking to hand over to a local firm to undertake technical design and to oversee construction.




The design included a new loft level bedroom and playroom, accessed by a custom fabricated steel stair – along with a green roof terrace, completely updated utilities, new bathroom, WC, home office and a considerable amount of bespoke joinery.

Working on behalf of Lia and Christine, we were delighted to oversee the renovation and extension of such a lovely little house through from RIBA Stage 4 (Technical Design), through Tender and Construction to RIBA Stage 6 (Handover and Closeout).
