Kirby Street

Client: Private Client

Redevelopment proposal in the heart of the jewellery quarter of the Hatton Garden Conservation Area, this contemporary contextual design re-establishes the area's historic warehouse aesthetic with variegated brickwork and Crittall-style fenestration. The massing is maximised within the constraints of the immediate townscape with lightweight and setback upper floors, each facilitating roof terraces which respond to the “glimpsed” views afforded of this prominent property within the tight network of streets. The local jewellery use is echoed in the fret-cut ornamental screens which adorn the punched windows in the masonry facades and the lightweight cladding which articulates the upper floors.
