Summary Architect Henning Stummel and his partner Alice Dawson take on an awkward, jagged covered space, trapped between other buildings in the crowded heart of North London. The ambitious plan is to convert a dilapidated old joinery workshop into a contemporary family home and office for Henning's practice. The workshop is hardly a building at all. This Edwardian joinery workshop was just thrown together by borrowing its neighbours' walls and simply roofing the left over space between the existing Victorian houses. But remarkably, rather than gutting the whole thing, Alice and Henning want to preserve the rusty original steel frame. To restore it they'll have to take it down and that means painfully extracting it from their neighbours' walls, without pulling down their houses too. But that's just the start of the difficulties presented by this random space, never intended to be lived in. Sections of neighbours' roofs must be replaced, the steel frame is rotted, and nothing is straight or true in this eccentric, cobbled together building. As the schedule falls behind, it's a struggle to get anything to fit properly and it seems like this wonky site might just get the better of them.
