The Drapery – Seven Sisters Road

The drapery building was once a large 1930’s department store for General drapery, fashion goods and mens outfitting.

This project was for the conversion of an art deco office block into residential apartments. The building was previously the London drapery store so the apartments were sensitively designed with the existing character of the building and kept classic and simple to fuse the modern with the heritage. Brooks Murray managed to get a total of 111 individual units within the existing curtilage.

The mix comprised 24 x 1 beds, 78 x 2 beds, 8 x 3 beds and 1 x 4 bed flats. The project was completed in 2012.
