Landscape designer to transform RIBA roof

Dan Pearson Studio has won the competition to remodel the roof terraces at the HQ of RIBA in Portland Place, London

The first stage of the competition, announced in the AJ, attracted 57 expressions of interest. Burd Haward Architects, Glowacka Rennie Archites and Studio Weave + Millimetre were also invited to outline their proposals for the project at a competitive interview.

Dan Pearson Studio is a landscape architecture practice and Pearson himself is a columnist for The Observer.

The firm’s scheme was judged to best meet the functional requirements of the publicly accessible terraces of the Grade 11 listed 1930s building, while also providing a memorable space. The strategy incorporates a changing backdrop of plants and living walls to create year-round interest.
