SKARCHITECTS LTD have been appointed by Crownage Ltd to provide technical design services and assistance during construction phase for the project at 114 Grosvenor Avenue in Islington, London.

The project comprises a change of use of former residential home (use class C2) to four self-contained flats and one house (use class C3), rear extension and reconfiguration of rear elevation, excavation at front at rear to form/extend light wells together with landscaping and provision of refuse and cycle storage.
