Titchfield House is a BREEAM excellent mixed use building that was granted planning approval in 2020. Douglas and King Acted as Architect, Design Team and Project Manager. The design of Titchfield House draws on the area’s typical warehouse structures and is a contemporary nod to their character and inherent architectural legacy.
It employs a pure architectural form in direct contrast to the outdated ‘70’s vernacular building it will replace: a utilitarian afterthought that neither harmonized or neutralized itself within it’s immediate urban context.
Its location is the corner of Tabernacle Street and Singer Street and the new building will strengthen and articulate these two streetscapes both in height and materiality.
At 5 storeys the building matches the existing parapet height of Tabernacle Street with a glazed recessed roofscape reflecting other typical Shoreditch sky space developments.
The new building’s façade will be of a lightweight brick construction with deep reveals to emphasise the purity of the architecture. The interior will offer high quality working environments, flexible and affordable, aimed at SMEs, to compliment the city fringe businesses and the growth of Shoreditch’s tech hub.
The design team and delivery of this project is led by Douglas and King Architects. For information on our processes read our blog on creative leadership by CLICKING HERE
