Nature of Project – New build residential – 7 apartment units
Date of Commission – 2004
Stage Complete – Granted planning May 2008
DETAILED PROJECT DESCRIPTION –
The existing site is located within the city of London and is currently vacant. The client approached us with a brief to devise a new residential building which could accommodate several apartment units. The major challenges in design terms were the restricted space available, the proximity to neighbouring buildings and the relationship with several listed buildings in close proximity. The end solution takes its lead from the existing warehouse aesthetic already established in the area and creates a building grounded firmly within its historic and cultural context.
Key elements: PPG 3 - urban regeneration, high density, residential
