Artisan Shortlisted for Housing Design Award
This striking development is already an award winner, it occupies a prominent corner position on Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street and comprises apartments on the upper floors with new retail and café below.
Seven years in the making, Artisan is a carefully crafted building weaving new with historic Fitzrovia building fabric. The existing module of the street was retained and the newly inserted architectural elements designed to work alongside, providing a contextual comparison between new and old, retaining similar uses of materials but in a fresh modern arrangement. Existing facades were refurbished and traditional mansard roofs added to complete the appearance and maintain a consistent roof line.
The full shortlist can be seen on the Housing Design Awards website, winners will be announced in July.
