Client: Fontayne Investments
Status: Proposal completed January 2007
The project involved the proposed redevelopment of a disused motor garage occupying a back land site off Barnes High Street and a terraced shop front on Barnes High Street. The project was in collaboration with David Long Architects.
In our proposal a restaurant was introduced fronting the high street whilst a three storey office building occupied the land-locked garage site. The ground floor of the office building was lowered half a storey in order to reduce the apparent mass of the building allowing the maximum use of the ground floor.
The envelope was modulated to avoid overlooking of adjacent properties while maximising the light to the office space. A biomass (wood pellet) boiler system was proposed along with the extensive use of green roofs.
