Swiss Cottage scheme not me, says Farrell

  • Comment
letters

Matt Green's critical letter (AJ 27.5.04) is based on the belief that I am the architect for the 'Visage' private housing scheme by Barratts at Swiss Cottage - well, I am not. The architect is S&P Architects, so his statements about 'putting his name to the scheme' and 'getting into bed' with the developer are nonsense.

What's really regrettable about the whole Swiss Cottage saga is that we feel we were used (as 'trophy architects') to win the public selection process and then to help secure the planning and developer approvals process. We were not actually appointed as the architect for the scheme; subsequently, we have been continually misattributed as being the architect for what is actually being built.

Could Matt Green please tell all his Hampstead friends what the real situation is.
