Situated in the heart of Upper Street in the London Borough of Islington, close to the Angel Underground Station, the unit is made up of two buildings, No. 57 and No. 58 Upper Street, which forms part of the ‘terrace’ of buildings, mainly of Victorian origin.
The internal layouts were completely reconfigured to accommodate this new restaurant layout, including the removal of several substantial internal piers and load bearing walls to create an open plan ground floor footprint. A steel moment frame was introduced to reinstate lateral stability. The formation of the roof terrace required additional steel strengthening to upgrade the existing flat roof construction for change of use.
