The lord napier
Refurbishment and extension to landmark public house in Hackney Wick
The Lord Napier is recognised as one of Hackney Wick’s most important heritage assets, it is locally listed and forms a key part of the Hackney Wick Central Masterplan. It gains this status due to being the only surviving evidence on the site for the nineteenth century residential development of the area, as well as for its significant communal value.
ZCD have received planning approval for minor alterations and a sensitive refurbishment, so as to enable the Lord Napier to reopen as a modern working public house that can serve the local community.
Our proposal takes a ‘light touch’ approach to ensure all works are in-keeping with the existing building while making it secure and future proof. These proposed works include a small extension to the side and rear, a new at roof over the house buildings, alteration of the existing basement, new access to the main roof and sympathetic refurbishment and restoration throughout.
