联盟码头住宅是一个运河中间段的地产建筑,随着工厂建筑的改造足迹而改造。位于伦敦 Islington 的 Regents 运河边。项目的灵感是将陈旧的,缺乏表现力的夫妇住宅改造为当代的,节能的,空间宽敞的家庭住宅。
先有温室改造后创造一个灵活的空间,可以用来作为客人套房、休息室或书房。沿着 Regents 运河,新的屋顶结构受到运河内船的启发结合一层包裹橡木和灰尘的室内。由于屋顶的顶部表达了很多的建筑结构,Nicholas Szczepaniak 事务所在早期设计阶段与Blue 工程事务所紧密合作。木和钢切片组件创造结构的易读性,增加节奏和纹理,同时提高了体量感。层叠的南立面使阳光,视线最大化,加强平台和天空的联系。它由3个用10毫米钢板制成的定制图片框架组成,对空间的内部分区做出回应。框架可以容纳通高的滑动玻璃门,以及在玻璃前垂直拉紧的钢缆,以散射日光。

Text description provided by the architects. Union Wharf is a mid terrace canal side property built within the footprint of a converted factory building. It is located along the Regents Canal in Islington, London. The aspiration of the project was to transform a dated, under-performing and compromised couple’s dwelling into a contemporary, energy efficient and spatially generous family home.

Works consisted of a full refurbishment and remodel of the three-storey property including the replacement and extension of an existing roof top conservatory to transform it from an unusable store room into a contemporary habitable space that can be used all year round with an external terrace.

The approach throughout the project was to use moderately priced materials, adding value through thoughtful, crafted details and care during execution.
The footprint of the existing conservatory was increased to create a flexible space that can either be used as a guest suite, lounge and/ or study. Located along Regents Canal, the new roof top structure is inspired by canal boats incorporating an enveloping oak and ash interior. As the roof top expresses so much of the structure, Nicholas Szczepaniak Architects worked closely with Blue Engineering from an early design stage. Timber and steel flitched components create structural legibility adding rhythm and texture whilst enhancing the perception of volume. The layered south elevation maximises light, views and enhances connectivity with the terrace and sky. It is articulated by 3 bespoke picture frames fabricated from 10mm steel plates that respond to the interior zoning of the space. The frames accommodate full height sliding glass doors as well as glare reducing steel cables strung vertically in tension in front of the glass to diffuse daylight.

The primary living space at ground floor was reconfigured to resolve the disconnection of the kitchen, lounge and dining area whilst creating an open free flowing space. A sliding glass partition allows a new playroom to be concealed or connected when appropriate to the main living space. Bespoke rotating window shutters fabricated from fluted glass provide privacy from users of the canal tow path whilst maximising natural light and views.

Inspired by the former industrial use of the building, the material palette incorporates raw and uncovered finishes such as the original concrete soffit, which contains the scars of where walls were located whilst the building was used as a factory. In contrast to this, elements such as the kitchen, fixtures and fittings are precisely detailed, warm in colour and texture to create a unique material palette with a contemporary yet homely atmosphere.
