Chapel Market House | London | Edgley Design

Architect Statement

We were both developer and architect on this scheme for two new houses on Chapel Market in Islington. The site is surrounded on all sides by a high wall, and turns in on itself to form a retreat from the lively bustle of the market outside. As you enter the house the spaces gradually unfold, first into a hall lit by slots of light cut up into the roof then into an open living area. These spaces are finished in natural materials- limestone and walnut- that are inviting to the touch and the barefoot resident. As you step out into the courtyard, bare brick walls and raw timber reflect the industrial history of the site......more picture of the house here
