STUDIO HURLEY + HUGHES
Architecture and Design
121 Upper Richmond Road
Mixed use: residential, office, retail
Rachel was project architect for AHMM at Upper Richmond Road, Putney.
'With its mix of new homes, modern office space and active retail frontages, Upper Richmond Road improves the streetscape and enlivens the heart of London’s SW15 to provide a catalyst for urban regeneration in the area.
Composed of a cascading series of interlocking volumes containing residential accommodation above retail and commercial opportunities the two blocks are connected via a six storey link block. Together the two phases provide 113 double aspect apartments and an array of balconies, winter gardens and terraces.
The building’s stepped dovetailing design language is expressed coherently at multiple scales, from the overall massing through to the relief brick texture. '
