4 Storey Gallery+Apartment building in Hoxton Square, London

DOS Architects have just obtained Planning consent for their proposed building at 20-21 Hoxton Square, London. The proposal has been subject to 10 months of lengthy negotiations with the London Borough of Hackney due to the sensitive nature of the site and Grade II listed adjacent building. The Architects' intent was to create a simpleand modern building which sat confidently alongside thegroup of listed buildings by replicating their main claddingmaterial –the brick- as well as picking up the main heightlines and rhythms of their façade. The scheme will providea high quality, contemporary addition to the square whilebeing sympathetic to its historic neighbors and theconservation area.
