Planning permission has been granted on our Yorkton Street office project. The concept marries a solid monolithic base with a timber saw-tooth roof structure that references the architectural language of the surrounding historic building forms. The design introduces a new arrangement of fenestration to all elevations, creating new visual relationships with the surrounding buildings.
A striking choice of materials creates an assured presence on the street - the base, along with the front primary bay, is constructed from unique, charcoal-pigmented clay bricks, with charred timber cladding above. A bespoke anodised metal staircase provides a sculptural connection between the upper and lower masses. A combination of flush glazing and deep-recessed windows introduces intermittent, punctured articulation to each elevation.
