Completion – Couture House, Kensington

The Couture House, designed by AUA, nears completion. The project modifies an existing end of terrace house in Kensington by converting the previous garage into a simple & modern side extension over 3 floors. A frameless glass corner window reflects the double height interior space of the entrance and a recessed vertical column of glazing addresses the change of material on the side elevation.

Appeal Win – Barnes High Street

Consent has been granted for the development of a new build townhouse to the rear of Barnes High Street. The project regenerates an under utilised brownfield plot of land and has been designed to be sympathetic to the surrounding buildings and Conservation Area.

Consent was granted through appeal where the Planning Inspectorate noted that the design would be of a high quality modern appearance which would contrast but not compete with the important buildings in the Conservation Area.

Completion – M&S Foodhall, Trowbridge

Trowbridge’s new Marks & Spencers Foodhall, located within Cradle Bridge Retail Park, has opened its doors to the public. The building form is a rhythm of pitch roofs, reflective of the local mill and warehouse vernacular, that ends with a flat roof and canopy that defines the entrance to the building.

The design and siting of the building anchors the retail park together with providing a direct connection to St Stephens Place Leisure Park. This is further reinforced by the construction of a new footbridge over the River Biss linking the two strategic sites together which has also been designed by AUA.
