The Postmen’s Sorting Office

Planning permission was granted for Studio Mackereth’s design for a mixed-use development of commercial and residential units in North London.

The proposal is the result of detailed and fruitful discussions with the local authority to ensure a design approach for the apartments, which would be both suitably contemporary in their architectural style while also remaining sensitive to the adjacent listed building.

The challenge has been to unlock the potential of this backland site with a careful refurbishment of a fondly regarded local landmark in London’s Kentish Town and to provide new-build residential apartments to the rear.
