Five-storey mixed-use infill based on 44 ’misshapen blocks’
Bureau de Change has completed a five-storey mixed-use development in London’s Fitzrovia that adds to the district’s eclectic streets with a traditional-yet-contemporary mix of misshapen Staffordshire blue clay bricks.
The practice’s Interlock building on Riding House Street was created for developer HGG London and delivers three new apartments, a street-level café and a gallery beneath.
Bureau de Change said the scheme responded to the proportions of the neighbouring 19th-century terrace with a brick façade purposely designed to create a building of “uncertain” heritage – simultaneously historic and contemporary, familiar yet foreign.
