Two new live work units were created on the Victorian shells of former market storage buildings in a narrow mews street in London’s East End. 


The buildings were constructed on a low budget as self build projects for the two families acting as Clients. 

A new lightweight steel and timber structure was built onto the existing re-configured masonry base to form two stories of living accommodation with a double height top-lit space and roof terrace. Work spaces are on the ground floor.
