Common design feature in spotlight as residents lose Tate Modern privacy case
The High Court judge who refused pleas from residents of RSHP’s Neo Bankside for greater privacy from Herzog & de Meuron’s Tate Modern extension has raised issues over the use of fully glazed winter gardens in the design of luxury homes.
Mr Justice Mann yesterday ruled against five residents of Neo Bankside who argued that the degree of visual scrutiny they faced because of the new Blavatnik Building’s 10th-floor viewing gallery breached their human rights.
He said Native Land, which developed the Stirling Prize 2015-shortlisted scheme, and the occupiers who bought the flats had “created or submitted themselves to a sensitivity to privacy which is greater than would be the case of a less-glassed design”.
