Buildings.

Dartmouth Park House, London, by AY Architects (phs: Nick Kane, Anthony Boulanger)

“Beginning as a modest conversion of an over-developed Victorian terraced house, the project became an ambitious redevelopment of the entire building. By reflecting the client’s personal travels and interests, AY Architects have created an unusual and exotic home.”

De Beauvoir Block, London, by Henley Halebrown (phs: Nick Kane)

“An exemplar collaborative workplace, providing an inspiring environment for start-up businesses to begin and grow. The new work units, which sit on top of the existing industrial building, are timber-framed studios wrapped in EPDM. These black rubber blocks are low-cost and innovative, and their contemporary design sits well within the historic warehouse brick.”

Buildings.

Faraday House, London, by dRMM Architects and Simpson Haugh (phs: Andy Stagg, French & Tye)

“On a difficult site located on the western edge of the Battersea Power Station masterplan this small development has brought delight in its form, material use and typological arrangement. An architecture of experience and movement, the complex arrangement of homes is typologically sound and successfully finds a balance between circulation experience, unit distribution, perimeter definition and material identity. A delightful housing scheme where the architect has created wonderful homes on a less than optimal site.”

Buildings.

Fitzrovia House, London, by Carmody Groarke (phs: Johan Dehlin)

“The fusion of careful restoration and reductionist contemporary interventions has created an elegant family home for its art collector clients. Spatially, the transition between old and new is blended and given continuity with a palette of white materials, from painted plaster and wood in the Regency rooms, to white Carrara marble and light timber in walls, floors and fittings in all the newly created spaces. Every opportunity has been taken to exploit the original form within the cannon of classical proportion and restrained form and detail. The outcome is a very beautiful but vital home, tailored with great dexterity.”

Buildings.

Gasholder Park, London, by Bell Phillips Architects (phs: John Sturrock)

“A delightful public space created within the constraints of the grade-II-listed gasholder in the residential heart of King’s Cross, it is simplicity at its best, drawing people to the area and offering a relaxing, tranquil setting. The decision to not compete with the dominance of the gasholder but instead propose a refined, engaging design which reflects light and views of its surrounding is to be applauded. The contemporary intervention helps to heighten the experience of the Victorian structure – a heartening dialogue between old and new.”
