Mews Houses London

This old industrial setting was instrumental in informing the architectural language of these dwellings. From the outside, the two dwellings appear as a veiled mass. The upper section is a composition of metal fins arranged in a structural steel frame. These fins have been laid out in varying widths to create a rhythm to the street elevation and have been periodically doubled in depth creating an interference pattern. At night the front elevation comes alive; its transparency is realized when each property is lit from within.

Location: Hatcham Park, London
Status: Planning Consent
