Futuristic Floating Green City Creates Symbiotic Relationship with Its Environment

Mayfair House by Squire and Partners

Squire and Partners have designed a custom leaf façade on a private house in London. Description Squire and Partners have completed a private house in Mayfair, London, featuring a striking bespoke leaf facade which mirrors an established Virginia Creeper on a facing building on Curzon Street. The contemporary interpretation of leaves are crafted as a metallic shingle, which cover a three storey elevation and rooftop pavilion. The PPC coated folded aluminium leaves – 4,080 in total – subtly vary in tones of bronze to mimic organic growth patterns. The concept was designed over a three year period of research and development working closely with Swiss manufacturer Tuchschmid. Westminster planning committee described the proposal as ‘striking’ and ‘raising the bar for design within the borough’.
