Client: Royal Mosa
Project Year: 2013
Cost: £100k - £500kOur striking new black building on London’s St John Street shows little of its origins as a tired 70s office building. Our original brief was to breathe new life into this building and to raise its profile in the neighbourhood with a new face and a new roof storey.
BAA was then commissioned to design the flagship store of Dutch tile manufacturer Mosa as part of the redevelopment of a larger building at 60 St John Street. The street is a home for design companies and a number of Mosa’s competitors are located nearby – which encouraged a bold architectural approach.
The showroom is all about the tiles with nothing to distract your attention from the products. Simple, sophisticated design and a neutral colour palette serves as a clean backdrop to the natural colours of the Mosa oeuvre. From the street a fully glazed ground floor creates an enticing entrance.
The interior space is the result of a happy collaboration between Ben Adams Architects and the Mosa design team.
