Delightful monument to the Victorian terrace
London RIBA Regional Award 2019
Groupwork for Aria
Contract value: £180,000
Cost per m²: £330.00
Contributing to the streetscape with remarkable delight, this is a 1:1 cast monument and memory to the Victorian terrace that previously existed on this plot. It creates, rather than re-creates, sculptural facades which are both energetic and reposeful. Housing a beautifully curated contemporary shop at ground floor level, with working ateliers and apartments above, each space has been intelligently carved out with airy double-height volumes and vistas into space beyond. This is an artfully subtle and generous contribution to both the architectural and the street scene.
