Curtain Road

Sited at the midpoint of a continuous terrace of Georgian warehouses, this project defines the eastern edge of a larger urban block. The project retains a three-storey brick base and is crowned by a three-storey lightweight contemporary extension designed to complement the street morphology and embrace the changes in heights and indents of the street pattern. The facade’s strong vertical and horizontal bands – a key characteristic of the conservation area – attune with the neighboring buildings, while the materiality of the elements express a separation between the old and the new.
