DMA office rooftop extension is granted planning

Proposals to extend the rooftop of the DMA office in Camden have been granted for development by the planning inspectorate. The rooftop extension will create welcomed new space for client meetings and studio events. As well as including such design features as concealed solar panels and a green roof, the extension will be clad in perforated galvanised steel to act as a ’brise soleil’ and will feature a pattern extracted from the internal structure of a grand piano – a nod to the building’s original use as a piano factory in the late 19th Century.
