Threefold bags planning for King’s Cross house | News

House Design

Threefold Architects has secured planning permission to convert a two-room single-storey home at the side of a listed block of central London flats into a three-storey house.

The practice’s proposals for 48a Wicklow Street, near King’s Cross Station, will deliver a new single-bedroom property with a roof terrace.

Threefold said the existing property on the site was “unremarkable” and sat “slightly incongruously” between the six-storey Victorian structure and a contemporary home to the east.

Under its proposals, which were approved by Camden council at the end of February, parts of the existing structure will be retained for the new property, while a new frontage clad with wrought iron will nod to the features of its taller neighbourhood.


The new extended property will occupy the same footprint as the existing building, with rooms arranged either side of a stair core.

Threefold director Jack Hosea said the Wicklow Street proposals were an important opportunity to re-use an existing building to create an exciting new residence that respects and enhances its setting.

“We believe our carefully considered design, alongside a sympathetic and contextual material palette, makes for an elegant and contemporary home, while making a striking and fresh addition to the streetscape,” he said.

Threefold said the new home would have a gross internal area of ​​53.3sq m.
