KDA redesigned 1,800m2 of luxury goods retail space on the ground floor of Selfridges & Co’s famous Oxford Street store. Finding inspiration in the way stores fit neatly behind the existing architecture of London’s Victorian shopping arcades, and in the notion of wunderkammer – room-sized displays of interesting or exotic objects – KDa created the Wonder Room, a spaced that housed “a luxury goods emporium with the energy of a souk.”

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.

Felsham Road is a bold and radical re-working of an early Victorian Semi-detached house in Putney. Our brief was to extend and improve the property to achieve its maximum potential and in so doing, we have exploited the volume within the house to create double height spaces.

Designers align have worked with Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons on Omeara, an exciting new 350-capacity live music venue, bar and performance space in Flat Iron Square in London’s Borough, which has now opened its doors to the public.
‘I’ve been playing and putting on shows in London for my entire adult life.’ Ben Lovett commented. ‘Without the grass-roots music venues in this city, the band and I simply wouldn’t have achieved what we have, so I have a lot to be grateful for. Over the last few years, London has lost so many of its brilliant music establishments and I want to do what I can to try and reverse that decline.’

The Hurlingham project in London involved the construction of a sports complex including four indoor tennis courts and four squash courts. The racquet hall, designed by David Morley Architects, is 35 metres wide and 55 metres long. The main span consists of suspended steel beams. To give the courts space and reduce the costs, the beams are spaced with large gaps of 12.9 metres. To fill these gaps, the architect wanted to see wood.
