5 Richmond Mews

Conceived as a contemporary counterpart to 76 Dean Street, we have completed the construction this mews building fronting on to Richmond Mews, a quiet address in the heart of Soho.

Designed to reflect the characteristics of the adjacent warehouse buildings, the façade is built from traditional handmade bricks arranged in a series of stepped planes which toy with shadow and light.

Functioning primarily as a service building, the industrial concertina doors conceal a loading bay and crittal windows reference the proportions of the Georgian building beyond. Frameless glazing to the staircore reflects the steel staircase inside.

Brass details on the flanks of the elevation and a bespoke, pressed brass door continue the lively approach to a conservation area building.
