Acknowledging the patina of ancient alleys and passageways across the City, this redevelopment will connect a large 1980s building back to the urban grain and dramatically improves its public face.   Briefed to redevelop an existing building for a new generation of tenants, we saw that making the building more permeable would raise its profile, giving it presence on two major City thoroughfares.

Glazed faience tiles will line both…

The elevation was dominated by a large mansard roof to conceal a servicing plant and was principally defined by accentuated triangular motif dormer windows on the third floor, with additional triangular decorative steel portal…

Friday 15th November saw the opening of Fred Perry’s new international flagship store in Manhattan, where our design melds the brand’s British heritage with the iconic identity of New York City. The 700sqft space has transformed the ground floor shopfront of a historic building on Broome Street in Lower Manhattan, used for the past 35 years as an antiques dealership.     The store will become Fred Perry’s North American outpost and marks a ten year design-collaboration between us and the renowned British brand. Together, we have completed stores in Stockholm, Seoul, Munich and Bangkok - and Fred Perry’s own head offices in London.    Our partnership with Fred Perry over the past ten years has given…
