Project: Barnsbury Place, Islington, London

Client: Mount Anvil

Barnsbury Place is an outstanding conversion of a former Edwardian school situated in the prestigious Barnsbury conservation area, into prestigious new houses. It was the best-selling development in Islington in 2010. Originally built in 1901, the buildings had fallen into disrepair and were in desperate need of attention and thoughtful refurbishment. Barwin carried out a complete sympathetic façade restoration of the three original Edwardian buildings within the established parish of Barnsbury. The intricate brickwork detailing and elegant stonemasonry has been painstakingly restored to an exceptionally high quality to reinstate character and charm.

Scope of works:

  •     Terracotta, red brick and Portland stone restoration
  •     Dutch gable was taken down and rebuilt
  •     Stone bottle balustrade restoration
  •     Chemical cleaning – HF 20
  •     Sandblasting to the terracotta Paint striping to the internal stairwells
