4 - 6 Highbury Crescent

Project outline

Murphy converted this inner city office block into 43 high-specification residential apartments for client, Folgate Estates.

Key challenges

Murphy stripped back the existing six-storey office block to its concrete shell and fully redeveloped it. All 43 flats were constructed to meet current building regulations, including all standard assessment procedures (SAPS) and acoustic requirements.

Project delivery and innovations

Throughout the apartments, Murphy opted for oak finished floors and doors. In keeping with the contemporary style, down lighters were fitted to provide lighting. Each apartment has air conditioning as standard delivered by a Daikin heating/cooling system.

Murphy finished the development to a high standard – all kitchens include high-gloss white units with fully integrated appliances and composite stone 32mm worktops. All bathrooms were supplied fully tiled with Villeroy & Boch appliances and stone-finished vanity units.

Common areas include coffered ceilings with integral strip lighting, and all existing stair balustrade was replaced with a new curved feature system to enhance the entrance reception area. Additionally, three new lifts were installed in existing lift shafts.
