RIBA Stirling Prize video: Darbishire Place by Niall McLaughlin Architects

  • Comment

Practice founder Niall McLaughlin talks about the ideas behind his firm’s Stirling Prize-shortlisted Darbishire Place

He described the £2.3 million housing development for Peabody as an ‘ordinary building’.

McLaughlin told the AJ: ‘The project in a way is quite an ordinary building. It is about lots of ordinary decisions that you make.’

He added: ‘We had to make something which we could construct in our time that would sit well with the existing buildings and would produce a kind of decorum in relation to what was already there.’

The scheme of thirteen homes has filled in one of London’s last remaining Second World War bomb sites and features a brick façade with deep-set window reveals.
