Location: GRAFTON WAY, FITZROVIA, CENTRAL LONDON
Project Year: 2014
Cost: N/AMore-or-less public, more-or-less private, the Georgian townhouse is London’s most hard working architectural typology. We are pushing it to its limits, adapting the typology to provide a mixed-use socially sustainable development that provides commercial spaces, residential accommodation and a three-storey family home. The project includes a full-scale renovation, reorganisation and reinterpretation of the existing building; a three-storey cantilevered rear extension; and a light-weight roof-top pavilion and garden. We are enjoying the opportunity to use architecture to support a mixed-use urban environment and to experiment with central London’s essential urban tissue.
