ADDRESSING THE AREA’S INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE. OUR APPROACH HAS BEEN TO CREATE SIMPLE AND ROBUST ELEVATIONS, WITH A RHYTHM INSPIRED BY FISH ISLAND’S INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE. REGARDING THE ELEVATIONAL TREATMENT, OUR APPROACH WILL BE TO USE SUBTLE CHANGES OF DEPTH TO CREATE A DYNAMIC AND MODERN LOOK.
Materials Palette. A robust brick mix is proposed as the facade material for their texture and domestic quality while tall glazed openings will give the commercial plinth a sleek look. Balconies and window frames will be in a soft metal colour in keeping with the tones of the project.
Typical floorplates will be expressed by strong horizontal brick lines while vertical brick pillars will be recessed. Windows will be full height within the brick frame. Alternating metal panels will be arranged in a seemingly random way depending on internal layout changes.
Residential balconies will be framed by brick pillars and guarded by bronze coloured metal balustrades to match the windows frames.
