Ronann apartments & office space, London, UK

pH+

The scheme is situated directly onto the Regent’s Canal and provides 40 new homes (24 private, 8 shared ownership and 8 social rented apartments) above a creative office complex. 

It is intended to directly respond to and celebrate the character of this previously industrial landscape with a brass carapace, layered behind ivy screens, gabian walls and timber walkways, to realise a concept of ‘delamination’, where interstitial space creates opportunities for new natural habitats to flourish in the series of meadows, parks, gardens, balconies and apartments that are consequently created.

Eventually, as the building matures, the brass skin will weather to a rich brown and the ‘mole-hill’ roof lights to the commercial space below will be enveloped in the tall grasses and wild flowers of the laid meadow. The building will be continually changing in response to changing site conditions and the dominant local plants of each season.
