This street is now home to one of the first contemporary houses to be built alongside the popular Victorian architecture of Islington. Originally constructed after the war for a Pentonville prison officer, this detached house was virtually rebuilt after a successful groundbreaking planning appeal with a new top floor and a zinc clad extension at the front. The house incorporates solar water heating and heat recovery, underfloor heating, recycled materials and high thermal mass to achieve a low carbon footprint.
