Squire and Partners approached their commission to style a personal property as a crafted developing, delicate to its Mayfair Conservation Area context but with a exclusive modern presence.
The task concerned the retention of an current 18th century façade facing Waverton Street, and the design and style of a new developing comprising 3 linked volumes to generate a distinctive house in central Mayfair. Accommodation provides 5 bedrooms, a swimming pool, gymnasium, cinema, rooftop pavilion and 2 separate roof terraces.
From the Architects:
Squire and Partners have finished a private house in Mayfair, London, featuring a striking bespoke leaf facade which mirrors an established Virginia Creeper on a facing creating on Curzon Street.
The contemporary interpretation of leaves are crafted as a metallic shingle, which cover a 3 storey elevation and rooftop pavilion. The PPC coated folded aluminium leaves – 4,080 in total – subtly differ in tones of bronze to mimic natural growth patterns. The idea was designed more than a 3 year period of research and improvement working closely with Swiss manufacturer Tuchschmid.
Westminster planning committee described the proposal as ‘striking’ and ‘raising the bar for style inside the borough’.
