Academy House, Oxford Street

Floral Street, Covent Garden
(Brimelow McSweeney Architects)
New faience frontage for Plaquemine Lock, an English pub set on the Regents Canal in Angel, Islington.
Haddo Yard, Kent
The name of the development was inspired by former resident Somerset Maugham’s novel, ‘The Magician’, the main protagonist of which is Oliver Haddo based on the occultist Aleister Crowley.
The aesthetic character of the building takes its cues from the local context, with the dark brick gables evoking the distinctive forms and tones of the black timber fishing huts that populate the sea front. Bespoke tiles, referencing the faience tiles evidenced throughout the town, are based on these triangles and provide decorative relief to the principal, public facing elevation, recognising the presence of the building within the public setting.
