Princelet Street

Princelet Street

Located to the east of Brick Lane, 42-46 Princelet Street substantially refurbishes and extends an existing building, originally two buildings and since connected to form a single space. 

The design introduces a stepped one to two storey roof extension, gaining space and resolving issues of poor internal day lighting. The pleated roof space features large north light glazing, a contemporary version of the weaving lofts that once filled the Brick Lane area.

Internally, the scheme expands the existing atrium and extends it upwards through the two new floor levels. A new winding stair within the atrium will create a dynamic central space, enhancing natural light and creating connections and interactivity between floors. The entrance will be remodelled internally to carve out a double height reception space and strengthen the visual connection to the café space on the lower ground floor.
