Green Urban Oasis: 15 homes above shops re-imagined
Flats above shops re-imagined.
The client initially came to us with a requirement for 3-4 units above a major national retailer in place. During feasibility we were able to achieve 15, an increase of the GDV by a factor of 4.
The proposal is for the demolition of upper floors and retention of retail units in situ, and addition of 15 new residential units above and to the rear, creating an unique and calming refuge from the busy central urban area.
Comprehensive refurbishment, extension and restoration of a 1765 Grade II Listed property in Camden’s Bloomsbury Conservation Area, for a bespoke tailor’s shop with flats above.
The project consolidates, preserves and restores the listed fabric enhancing the building’s long-term conservation and reinforcing the street’s historic use-pattern of “living above the shop” by expanding the tailoring into the basement and adding a contemporary 2-storey rear extension; as well as creating two high-value new residential units in the upper floors.
This proposal for an extension to a family home in Dublin was informed by the client’s interest in Japanese architecture and the desire for a better connection to the west facing garden.
A courtyard garden, or tsubo-niwa as they are known throughout Japan, is positioned at the centre of the reordered home. A typical tsubo-niwa is limited in size, whereas the courtyard is, in this instance, extended and connected to the living spaces; allowing our clients to live within their garden.
Full restoration of a Regency period pub, and the building of a new mixed use building adjacent, with a glazed link containing circulation for both buildings creating a clear divide between the old and new.
Following our Stage 2 short-listing, and in response to London Festival of Architecture's call for improvements to the Thessaly Railway Bridge underpass in Wandsworth, we proposed the tallest periscope in London at the Ascalon St. entrance of the underpass, balanced by a Camera Obscura/Kaleidoscope at the St. George’s School entrance. These powerful markers were to be combined with tiled friezes by fine artist, Mary Evans, within the underpass and complimented by enhanced lighting, elegant decorative tile accents and a sequence of directional floor markers between Ascalon St. and Corunna St.
