A very difficult planning permission was sucessfully achieved. The project brief called for the creation of 10 000 sq. ft of new office space and 10 000 sq ft of new residential accommodation by adding areas to the building in a manner that allowed improvement to the appearance of the building as well as its relationship to the adjoining buildings. The additional areas provided the opportunity to create large transparent areas of frameless glazing which contrasted sharply with the solid “hole in wall” language of the existing elevations developed in the 1960’s.The redesigned facades create an interesting play of solid to void, visually reducing the apparent bulk and mass of the building while reflecting the character of the surrounding environment Project Collingwood House Location London SW1, UK Client Wellbeck Land ←previous   next→
