Leaf Facade in Mayfair \ Squire and Partners

• September 14, 2013

Squire and Partners have completed a private house in Mayfair, London, featuring a striking bespoke leaf facade which mirrors an established Virginia Creeper on a facing building on Curzon Street.

The project involved the retention of an existing 18th century façade facing Waverton Street, and the design of a new building comprising three linked volumes to create a unique home in central Mayfair. Accommodation provides fi ve bedrooms, a swimming pool, gymnasium, cinema, rooftop pavilion and two separate roof terraces.

The contemporary interpretation of leaves are crafted as a metallic shingle, which cover a three storey elevation and rooftop pavilion. The PPC coated folded aluminium leaves – 4,080 in total – subtly vary in tones of bronze to mimic organic growth patterns. The concept was designed over a three year period of research and development working closely with Swiss manufacturer Tuchschmid.

Westminster planning committee described the proposal as ‘striking’ and ‘raising the bar for design within the borough’.
