A welcome landscaped space in a dense urban location
Bennetts Associates for Derwent London
Contract value: £30m
The retained building allows a memory of the traditional ‘hole-in-the-wall’ character of the conservation area on the outside, while creating a narrow internal glazed street. Wall carvings by Susanna Heron in the covered entrance to the courtyard provide an attractive relief to the flank wall to the restaurant space. This is an extremely well-considered and resolved development.
