Steffian Bradley were tasked with developing Design proposals for two new storeys of executive residential accommodation to be situated on top of an existing 1930's residential block in North West London. A lightweight steel and glass design has been developed, with a particularly sensitive approach to the architectural language and use of materials on the external facade. A subtle set-back at high level ensures the proposal feels subservient to the existing buildings, with the modern intervention paying respect to the original 1930's language. The use of extensive green roof technology, photovoltaics and other renewable technologies ensures the design will be highly sustainable.
Throughout the design process the team benefited from the use of 3D printed models to test conceptual ideas and drive the creative process forward, clearly communicating design intent to the client and other consultants alike.
