“Well considered mixed use building on an outer London High Street. The use of brick patterns, detailing and the long term need for robustness low maintennance, really lovely local infill site.”
The project exemplifies what we set out to achieve; characterful and robust homes that people will be proud of for generations to come. Conceived as two interlocking forms, the symmetrical white façade references the former Art Deco cinema that once stood on the site next door. The recessed red brick detail in the white brick creates a bold motif that references the geometric fenestration patterns in the old Odeon. The red brick element that wraps the corner is more humble in nature and makes reference to the Victorian context.
