Occupying a prominent corner site in Shoreditch, a new building is to accomodate 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 a basement pool.

A filigree of perforated 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.

Shoreditch, London. 

Unrealised, 2009.
