A strong urban statement... unusual, enjoyable and lovely to visit
Stiff + Trevillion with Pozzoni for Alchemi Group (developer) and Marker Study (owner)
Contract value: £30.8m
This conversion and extension of a 1980s office building provides 57 apartments plus rooftop gardens with retail at ground floor. It is a strong urban statement, amplified by the distinctive grey, peppery brick, enlivened at the base by darker glazed insertions. The elevations are ordered simply, reflecting the structural pattern of the original building.
The entrance is defined by an ornate, double-height, brick-clad lobby. In the apartments, glazed internal doors and elegant joinery create distinctive interiors. Stepping out through bronze finished windows and beautifully detailed balconies, it is clear that the design has been carefully controlled at every step.
This is a speculative building of great quality and character, with consistent and thoughtful architecture everywhere, making it unusual, enjoyable and lovely to visit.
