We completed a careful restoration and refurbishment of this Grade I-listed town house by Robert Adam. This has involved unpicking the ‘restoration’ carried out when it became James Stirling’s office in the 1980s and using the opportunities thus presented to introduce some unorthodoxies of our own, such as light-tunnels to get daylight deep within the building and the insertion of a panelled anteroom to connect the ground-floor kitchen at the rear with the more ‘set piece’ living room overlooking the square.
We have also worked with the client to design a bespoke bar stool; a computer model and prototype of which can be seen here.
This project is featured in ‘Topical Building‘, a 2017 monograph on the work of Hugh Cullum Architects.
