This house by Alan Higgs Architects has been shortlisted in this year’s RIBA Awards.
The project was ambitious: adding three large new family living spaces to a historic house, around a mature protected tree. The site falls in two directions and is bordered by a busy road and The Regent’s Canal and is overlooked by many neighbours.

Carlo Pazolini, Brompton Rd is a 120 sqm space in Knightsbridge, London, housing men’s and women’s shoes and accessories. The design marks an evolution of the Carlo Pazolini worldwide store concept integrating specificities of site. Our design sought to recognize the memory of the adjacent 18th Century Brompton Arcade (now part of a retail store) by recreating a contemporary barrel vault ceiling as well as the illusion via a mirror wall that the space opens to the exterior at the back. An historical detail in the facade was used as a generative “seed” for the interior geometric language and led us to a pointed rather than semicircular barrel vault design. The memorialization of this neighboring arcade space led to a tunnel-like twisting of the interior in such a way that the floor, walls, and ceiling become wrapped into one another, creating a vortex of movement from front to back in which design elements flock like schools of fish moving through a turbulent fluid environment.

The project was to renovate and extend the University’s Victorian Chapel. Originally built in 1880, and then extended in 1927, the Chapel is used for a number of different events and purposes: services, group meetings, concerts and as a place of quiet contemplation.
In 2015 the University commissioned Design Engine Architects to oversee a complete restoration of its internal and external fabric. In addition, the University asked for an extension to the chapel, to include a small side chapel and a social and meeting space. The brief was to create a very special project, to sit as a small ‘jewel’ in the heart of the campus.
