Dryden Street site photos / by Nick Ierodiaconou

Dryden Street is a sensitive conversion of a 19th century warehouse, providing D1 space on the basement and ground floor levels with residential on the upper floors. Works are progressing on site with internal partitions and M&E now nearing completion.

Now that the basic structural work has been completed, the geometry of spaces are being revealed and the dynamic between old and new is highly seductive.

Original stable house doors will provide light for a large, airy living space.

Detailed craftsmanship on the roof using traditional materials such as lead, zinc, and slate are particularly inspiring.

Exposed traditional roof carcassing will be stripped back and repainted.
