An Art Collector’s Fitzrovian Garden

RIBA London Award 2017

We collaborated with Gianni Botsford Architects to transform this formerly rather gloomy back court into a bright and airy outdoor space. The layered Cor Ten extension provides a gallery space that overlooks the garden and reflects light into it. The relationship of the gallery to the new garden derives from c18th London garden prototypes, which were in turn informed by traditional Roman courtyards or cortiles.
