Riding House Street

 

This project related to the demolition of an historic infill Victorian terrace in Fitzrovia, London and the creation of a new five storey building with a basement. Due to the enclosed nature of the site, the objective here is to maximise the available space and light to create an art gallery and three residential apartments.

 

The plot extends further to the rear on the ground, first and basement floors, so the upper floors (second, third and fourth) reduce going up the building. AMA introduced a central vertical light well, which crosses from the basement through the upper floors to allow natural light to flood through. In addition, a second light well at the rear of the building opens up the apartments to light-filled internal courtyards.

 

In order to complement the varied nature of the space, AMA has applied an interesting mix of materials. Stone, wood and metal have been used to differentiate the areas in a cohesive way.
