Peter Barber Architects for Kuropatwa
Contract value: undisclosed
This prominently positioned residential building, comprising 33 apartments, takes the form of a mansion block with a communal tree lined courtyard. Constructed with a reinforced-concrete frame and steel-frame infill panels, and clad in facing brick that matches the surroundings, the appearance is characterised by a ziggurat form which articulates the massing, and steps the building-line back. South-facing private terraces cascade down the front facade, reinforcing the relationship with the street below, and will evolve as residents grow plants in the external spaces. Particular attention was given to the building line and height of adjacent buildings to respect local character.
