20-24 Bateman's Row
This project (a Stirling Prize nominee in 2010) is an exercise in squeezing the maximum amount of space onto a limited site. The structure is an in-situ concrete frame clad with two types of brick: Blue engineerings laid on end in a stack bond distinguish the ground floor from the rest of the envelope, which is clad in a buff coloured unit. Internally the building is a mixed use development. The basement features an art gallery, accessed from its own entrance with an additional showroom on the ground floor. This level also features numerous entrances and a garage off Bateman's Row. Theis & Khan's office is located on the first floor. A couple of small flats, stacked vertically, can be found at the northern end of the plot off French Place. The upper floors contain a triplex apartment. On the second floor are the bedrooms, along with another, very small, studio flat. The top two levels, stepped back to create external terraces, are linked by a double height space.
