Materials, processes and the ‘hand’ are expressed and celebrated
London RIBA Regional Award 2019
6a architects for Hostem
Contract value: Undisclosed
The clients wanted to nurture engagement and interaction between food, art, fashion and fragrance in a single building. 6a collaborated with them for three years to produce and deliver a fluid brief. Spread over six floors, the building hosts several unique and flexible spaces. It is a display of 6a’s signature attention to making, in which materials, processes and the ‘hand’ are expressed and celebrated. This project challenges the future of retail, how buildings are designed and how buildings should be procured and constructed.
