Islington House

This refurbishment project involved the addition of a contemporary rear extension and the removal of most of the ground floor internal structural walls.

The result is a very bright open plan contemporary space, which incorporated a visually lightweight spray lacquered screen between the playroom and main reception room. A solid fuel stove was included along with solar water heating. The house has a distinctly Scandinavian feel, with white oiled floorboards, natural timber ceilings and lots of daylight.

According to the 2011 census, the Borough of Islington has the highest population density of local authorities in England and Wales – 13,875 people per km2.
In medieval times it was just one of many small manors in the area, along with Bernersbury, Neweton Berewe or Hey-bury, and Canonesbury (Barnsbury, Highbury and Canonbury – names first recorded in the 13th and 14th centuries). “Islington” came to be applied as the name for the parish covering these villages, and was the name chosen for the Metropolitan Borough of Islington, on its formation in 1899. On the merger with Finsbury, to form the modern borough this name came to be applied to the whole borough.
