This project is a design of a spherical art gallery in the heart of the City within the concept of pure geometry. The sphere was taken as a basis of a pure form from mathematics and the art gallery evolved from the understanding of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man and the Logarithmic Golden Spiral as a means to provide movement through the space in line with its concept.
The project provided an excellent design solution for remodelling a largely dilapidated victorian building located in Shoreditch by converting the residential dwelling into high end residential flats and to extend at the rear and provide a local artists society for artists and curators within the vicinity
Simone de Gale Architects are being commissioned to design and submit for planning a multiple residential new build development for 41+ flats in Southall, West London. On successful planning approval, we will then move forward onto detailed design and oversee the building works to completion.
The architectural concept is to preserve the original building and special architectural features, and then use an innovative approach to providing the space requirements, by adding a full height extension to the front elevation, which will provide a double height reception area and spaces for the workshops above overlooking the main street.
Our interpretation of possible development opportunity which would be favoured with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The design melts into the original fabric of listed buildings, but with a contemporary feel. Buildings like this are quite popular in Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster and would be fitting for the residential style along this street.
