Located on the busy Kilburn High Road in North London, the existing structure of this former office building has been reused and a new floor added. The building has been transformed into 79 serviced apartments together with retail uses at ground floor.
The lively activity of Kilburn High Road inspired the fresh and dynamic frontage. Balconies, set against a rendered wall, give rhythm and order to the façade and provide an added amenity for the residents. Cobalt blue glass panels give a structured secondary layer. The combination of perforated metal and glass captures the sunlight and attracts a play of light and shadow throughout the day.
