Shuttleworth to team up with Classicist Adam

  • Comment
Ken Shuttleworth is to link up with Classicist Robert Adam in one of the most unexpected collaborations in recent years, it has emerged.

MAKE has been handed its first-ever fit-out job - to revamp Adam's new office and retail scheme on London's Piccadilly.

It is understood the fit out will be a radical departure from what is an externally traditional scheme, located on one of London's most famous thoroughfares.

The eight-storey building, situated in the heart of the capital's West End, is to house over 7,000m 2of offices and nearly 3,000m 2of retail space.

Described as 'a modern Classical design', work on the Portland Stone-clad development is already well under way.

The news, leaked at the international property fair MIPIM, came just hours after Adam spoke out again in support of sustainability in traditional design.

Adam insisted that his claims were backed by Shuttleworth.

He said: 'My old friend Ken has even admitted that traditional design is more sustainable.'
