Bermondsey Street, London Bridge
This project is a rooftop extension and refurbishment to an existing residential block increasing accommodation to encompass a highly bespoke living arrangement.
The particular requirements are finely tuned to the needs of a musician, with studio spaces designed free of pedestrian distractions, but with very specific views across London; and recording spaces carefully positioned to maximise acoustic control. Entertainment spaces both internal and external weave in between the musician’s work life creating a composition of live and work to maximise flexibility.
Conceptually, a programme of living, entertaining and breakout space is choreographed into a simple container articulated as a homogenous shell. Inside the simple enclosure, the theatrics of the internal activities shape the spaces, each activity with its own definition and personality defined through material and proportion.
