Occupying a prominent corner site in Shoreditch a new building is to accommodate a private humanitarian foundation. At its heart and centrally positioned is 'the big table' ... a symbol for eating and communication, and a destination for social interaction and the exchanging of ideas. Above is a large imposing and tapering lightwell that extends through three levels to the roof.
From this centre are supporting spaces and multi purpose/exhibition areas on adjacent floors and beyond these are private apartments/overnight rooms, offices and basement pool.
A filigree of perforate colour coated panels cloak the building forming both sunscreen and veil. This is punctuated by random openings that cut deep to reveal mini atria and balconies.
