Private House, Mayfair, London by Squire and Partners

[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] Squire and Partners has won the green light for this Virginia Creeper-inspired, metal shingle-clad house in Mayfair, London

The project home in Waverton Street, within the Mayfair Conservation Area, will retain the facade of an existing 18th century pub while adding a new build element facing onto Curzon Street.

The practice claims the unusual shingle facade on the six-bedroom house took its inspiration ‘from a nearby building covered in a Virginia Creeper’ with each shingle plate ‘taking the form of leaves on a vine.’

Approved by Westminster Council, the scheme is laid out over five floors and also includes a swimming pool, a gymnasium, a home cinema, two roof terraces and an area of green roof.
