From the architect. The original Arundel Square was never completed. After three sides were finished the Victorian developer ran out of money and the North London Line was constructed in a cutting on the south side of the central gardens.

In our radical approach we have decked over the railway, creating an extra acre of land. Half of this land has been added to Arundel Square Gardens, and on the remainder we have completed the square with a contemporary six-storey apartment building. Its layered façade has been designed to harmonise with its surroundings, taking its framed proportions from the brick pilasters and sash windows of the existing houses.

The project creates funds for the regeneration of the public gardens by Islington Council and also for the restoration of an adjacent terrace of 18 houses.

Don't really understand your question John-David - its just four flats off a single stair core, over 5 floors with a penthouse on top. Its pretty typical fair, short horizontal travel distances to a protected stair core. Nothing fancy going on here as far as I can tell in terms of dealing with fire risk.

It's my understanding that the International Building Code (North America) emphasizes exiting in case of fire or emergency, and the Eurocode (Europe) emphasizes greater fire resistance.

how do you make a 4 story apartment with one exit stair and 4 flats per floor? Meaning what code does London use. Are there fire escapes not redily visible?

Wonderful design though.
