Telfer House, Islington
Clerkenwell | Islington Council | Ongoing
Telfer House is a new six-storey building, replacing a life-expired 1960s low-rise residential block, and providing 38 spacious dual-aspect apartments for Islington residents. The design responds to its prominent location directly opposite King Square Gardens, creating a continuous street frontage, that reinforces the civic square, punctuated by generous balconies with views of the gardens.
The apartments are designed to meet the highest standards of accessibility and inclusion exceeding London Plan internal space and external amenity space standard, with four wheelchair accessible units on the ground floor.
A valuable partnership between the council, residents and designers was established from the beginning of the project, to ensure that the needs and requirements of the end-user would be met.
