Our residential courtyard-tower, Cadence, at King’s Cross for Related Argent was given special mention in this Sunday’s Guardian/Observer Newspapers. Rowan Moore highlighted Cadence via a thoughtful retrospective, as a key feature in the King’s Cross masterplan.

We applaud Camden Council, Related Argent 以及来自不同领域的无数有才华的人,他们为整个彩票365官方网站的成功做出了贡献. With over two decades of evolution, King’s Cross has been rightfully submitted for this year’s RIBA awards program.

“Alison Brooks’s building, standing at the end of a long vista, offers some of the vivacity that other buildings lack. It consists of a conjoined pair of red brick towers, one tall and central, the other off-centre and angled away from the prevailing right angles, with jiggered rhythms of windows and recessed balconies. Irregular arrays of arches appear at top and bottom, and at one or two places halfway up, that follow not purely circular Bézier curves, which have an ancient-futuristic, Saharan-Star Wars feel. They have a mannered bounciness, palpably not carrying much weight. In the foyers and on some of the upper floors, arches extrude into vaults, which with the twists in the plan and a small courtyard create intriguing layers of inside and outside space. It’s not that every building need be as complicated as this, but it brings a welcome sense of adventure.” – Rowan Moore

Our award-winning project Unity Place has been featured in the most recent Architecture Foundation book, ‘At Home in London: The Mansion Block’, exploring the history and evolution of the iconic London typology through 27 significant projects.

Co-published with Mack Books, 该出版物通过27个重要彩票365官方网站探索了从19世纪50年代到现在的伦敦豪宅街区的历史和演变. 城市历史学家Karin Templin编辑了这本出版物,详细介绍了这种类型及其在定义当代城市中的作用.

Alison Brooks Architects first explored the mansion block as a typology back in 2010 with Ely Court, the first one of three projects for Brent Council in South Kilburn. As a strategy to restore the human scale and character of South Kilburn, our three modern mansion blocks follow six key principles from the type:

– Open ended bar buildings
– Frequent street facing communal entrances
– Two dwellings per floor/ per stair & lift core
– 100% dual aspect dwellings
– High ceilings and generous proportions
– Articulated roofscapes

This week’s Telegraph Luxury Magazine features Alison talking to Caroline Roux alongside other ground breaking female architects –  Farshid Moussavi, Eva Jiricna, Stephanie Macdonald, Jee Liu and Sadie Morgan.

“Last year Alison Brooks completed one of the UK’s most stunning private houses, in the Wye Valley. She added a black-clad extension to an 18th-century farmhouse, and inside has created the ideal setting for her client’s huge collection of tribal artefacts. ‘It’s been a 10-year project,’ she says. ‘It’s amazing to work so closely with a client, because you are telling their story. But I bring the same care to social housing. I’d never design anything I didn’t want to live in myself.’

Brooks has built theatres, galleries, and was the first woman to design a major addition to an Oxford college. The Cohen Quad at Exeter College, completed in 2019, is an extraordinary S-shaped building with internal cloisters composed of spruce fins.”…

“There’s a timelessness to Alison Brooks Architect’s work that I find quite interesting.

Their buildings are sensitive to their place while speaking concurrently to their future, and each project has a sculptural quality to it that isn’t lost in detailing.
