3 Britannia Wharf is a compact, split-level, 2-bedroom house located in the London Borough of Islington. The property is one of four houses converted in 1994 from an original factory warehouse situated on the banks of the Regents Canal. This locally listed building lies within the Duncan Terrace / Colebrook Row conservation area.


Paolo Cossu Architects were approached by the homeowners to individually reconfigure the internal layouts of the four houses and develop new second-floor roof extensions with terraces. Numbers 3 and 4 Britannia Wharf have now been completed and number 2 is currently under construction.


3 Britannia Wharf was designed and developed with an economy of visual, spatial and structural means. A simple palette of oak, marble and lacquered timber paneling, provide the clients with a timeless interior that enhances the quality of the existing spaces. The new spatial configuration and surface treatments enhance the penetration of natural light thoughtout the house subtly playing with the shimmering reflections of the Regents Canal.
