The Leathersellers’ Hall

London EC3 Client The Leathersellers’ Company Value Completed 2016

The Leathersellers’ Company has occupied this site continuously since 1543. Whilst earlier halls were located within St Helen’s Place, the new 7th hall has now returned to the site of its earliest historical location. The design showcases some of the best contemporary crafting in leather, joinery, textiles and metalwork.

The interior includes the following principal spaces: The Court Room sits 29 around a new table. The walls finished in American black walnut panelling alternate with vertical slotted timber reeds. The deep red curtains, white leather chairs, the colours of the carpet and the glint of the crystal cut chandeliers add life and ceremony to the room. The Reception Room, a light, airy space, speaks to the future more than the past and features a clear and indigo drawn glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly.

The Stair Hall incorporates scagliola pilasters from the sixth hall; these are placed between raised panels of polished plaster in two tones to add to the apparent depth of the surface. The Dining Hall (see page 23) can host 120 guests seated in three rows and has a clerestory with views to the church wall above. The walls are panelled in American black walnut, alternating in plain and reeded horizontal sections in a similar arrangement to the Court Room. The tapestry frieze, some 60 sqm was commissioned to create bold colour narrative and a sense of a further horizon. The Project recently won a RIBA London Award (2017).

Four Seasons Hotel Spa

London W1 Client Four Seasons Hotel & Resorts Value Confidential Status Completed 2011

One of the capital’s top 5-star hotels, the Four Seasons is located on Hamilton Place, just off Park Lane in London’s exclusive Mayfair district. Dating from 1969, the hotel was in need of refurbishment to preserve its reputation as a luxurious haven. Appointed in January 2005, Eric Parry Architects developed a proposal for the extension to the roof to include a new spa, early arrivals suite and gym. The attic storey also facilitates the rationalisation of existing and redundant plant and accommodate new chillers required to power air-conditioning to all bedrooms.

In addition to providing the vital 5-star services and facilities, our design offers visitors to the spa the opportunity to experience the magnificent rooftop views afforded by the hotel’s position. In developing the design, Eric Parry Architects carried out thorough analysis of the existing services and how massing of a new roof form would work with the form of the existing building. Conservation and Design Officers were closely consulted to achieve a quality of design sympathetic to the hotel’s surroundings and existing building.

The form and high quality of the materials used in the additional storey adds a sophisticated gravitas to the existing building. The vision behind the new extension is a delicate white attic with a dark ebony stove-enamelled metal roof, which overhangs and shades the new glass elevation and complements the existing Portland Stone façades. We have also enclosed the north elevation balconies with frameless double-glazing to make them usable all year round and increasing the area of the rooms in the process.

The Opera Terrace Covent Garden


London WC2E Client Capital & Counties Properties Value ÂŁ7.5m Status Completed 2017

In 2013, Eric Parry Architects was successful in gaining the unique opportunity of renovating one of London’s most famous historic sites: The Opera Terrace, Covent Garden (1831), which spans the Eastern Façade of the Grade I listed Market Building set in the Heart of the West End. Eric Parry Architects was commissioned to both replace the existing 1980s conservatory with a more contemporary design, that is equally fitting to the stature & heritage of the site, along with an extensive re-organisation of the restaurants programme, converting a once labyrinthine back-ofhouse into a more usable and efficient proposition.

It was this, combined with a desire to create a more vibrant dining experience, that led to an architectural response that takes shape as a clear glass wing, which hovers over the terrace, enfolding the dining & bar spaces, whilst still allowing access to the sky and views out onto the square below, where this light structure works as an animated backdrop to the activity of performance occurring within.

Fen Court Roof Garden

London EC3 Client Generali Value £140m Status Completed 2018

10 Fenchurch Avenue is a building conceived as a development in the tradition of the European city block, rather than that of the signature tall building. It sets a new street scale for this particular district of the City of London – it is a building that has a presence through a multitude of views, from the distant, to silhouettes seen down the many surrounding lanes and streets that characterise this City as London.

From the taller buildings that are emerging the current roofscape of the city is an unsightly sea of air conditioning plant. This and an absolute need for more sustainable building stock gave rise to the idea of creating a publicly accessible roof garden, accessed from a central court at street level. An enlarged north-south route runs through the building which will radically improve the connection to adjoining public spaces.

The building conforms to the architectural principle of a base, with retail use, a body of office floors to a street shoulder or cornice level, and an upper level of office floors that will have a crystalline appearance changing and activated by daylight and the weather conditions.

The Charterhouse

London EC1 Client The Charterhouse Value ÂŁ4.2m Status Completed February 2017

In 2012, Eric Parry Architects won a competition to make strategic interventions at The London Charterhouse. The Charterhouse is an historic complex centred on a 14th century Carthusian Monastery.

Following the Dissolution, its buildings were rebuilt as an extensive mansion house in the 16th century, and a charitable school and almshouse in the 17th century. Charterhouse School moved to Surrey in the 19th century and the almshouse (Sutton’s Hospital) remains the primary occupant of the site. This charity, in partnership with the Museum of London, has revealed its heritage to the public. After the site was bombed in 1941, the extensive damage repaired with mixed success in the 1950s.

This repair has allowed many opportunities to constructively restore, and sensitively adapt the most historic wings of the site for new uses in the continued life of the charity. The project provided public access to a hidden treasure, the built fabric of which has witnessed key moments in the history of England and Europe. From a vastly improved and redesigned public square, the public is invited via a new entrance into a new reception, education room and museum facilities.

Holburne Museum of Art

The project involved the refurbishment and extension of the Holburne Museum – a Grade I listed building in Bath, within a conservation area and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Opposite View of the new extension Below Sketch of the architectural concept for the extension

The museum is located at the end of Great Pulteney Street, one of the most impressive 18th century streets in Europe, linking the museum with the established attractions and activities in central Bath. The three storey extension provides an extra 800 sqm of gallery space to house the collection which has grown by some 2,000 exhibits since the Museum opened in 1916. It transforms the visitor’s experience with improved facilities, a lift which (for the first time) allows the Museum to be fully accessible to all, and a garden café opening onto the gardens.

The project reunites the historic Sydney Gardens with the city by recreating the clear axis between Great Pulteney Street at one end and the gardens at the other. The scheme significantly enhances the museum’s role in the community, and acts as a catalyst for the regeneration of this area of Bath and Somerset.

Royal Lancaster Hotel

London W2 Client Landmark Hotel Group Value £13.7m Status Completed 2005

The hotel is a significant landmark on the north side of Hyde Park, with views over the open space and London’s skyline. Podium and slab in design, it was constructed as an office block but converted soon after into a hotel. The exterior of the hotel was in need of revitalisation to remove tired and unsightly precast concrete panels. Eric Parry Architects was appointed in 1998 to carry out a major makeover of the building’s podium façade to protect and enhance the hotel’s commercial performance.

We proposed the complete reworking of the entire envelope of the hotel podium, which contains the conference facilities and restaurants. Planning permission was successfully gained from Westminster City Council and involved negotiations with the Royal Parks. The design and layout of the proposals were developed through detailed discussions and workshops with the hotel owners and its hotel management team, chef and conference and banqueting teams. The works comprised clearing away 1980s glass extensions and streamlining the frontage with a new stone façade. Striking, near white, limestone was used in conjunction with large glazed panels set in mirrorfinish, stainless-steel frames to create a new urban skin for the hotel.

The limestone, cut from Spanish quarries specifically for this project, was finished in the UK by stone specialists to ensure an elegant façade of the highest possible quality. The renewal also enabled the extension of the building line to the site boundary in two places, and as a result the hotel offer was expanded to include 12 new syndicate rooms, new hotel offices, and the new Island restaurant and private dining rooms. The practice has worked with the client on the feasibility of further extensions to the podium and refurbishment to the bedroom accommodation tower.

Tokyo Client Private Status Completed 2015

This residential project designed by Eric Parry Studio is an interior refurbishment of an existing apartment block unit, common area and entrance. Our approach was to complement the existing architectural qualities of this 10 year old apartment block by adding warmth, tactility and colour. Completed in 2004 the building has 52 units, located in an elegant old residential district near Shibuya Station in Tokyo.

Left View of landscaped courtyard Below Faรงade detail

The existing exterior features a beautiful tile developed by the sculptor Ayako Ueda. These softly crafted tiles are featured throughout the development and have informed our design. The discreet external entrance to the building has been transformed into an interior space through the introduction of metal and glass screens. Enhanced lighting & hard and soft landscaping add a sense of privacy and intimacy. Interior layouts of the apartment units have been reconfigured to create more spaciousness, higher ceilings and improved lighting. Comfort and elegance has been created by applying a simple spacial and material hierarchy executed with an honest touch of craftsmanship.


May May Restaurant

Singapore Client Nozome Pte Ltd Status Completed 2014

Located within the Tanjong Pagar conservation area in Singapore, Eric Parry Studio designed this shophouse conversion for a restaurant fit out, and renewal works to the front faรงade.

The May May Restaurant occupies a 5m wide 25m deep traditional shophouse ground floor. Its main feature is the light well in the centre of the space with a living green wall that climbs the wall to the roof. May May offers food and drink inspired by the flavours of Asia that blends with modern day Singapore. The new interior targets an international crowd to create a backdrop for casual business meetings and lunches.

References to selected familiar elements of the traditional shophouse are modernized and accentuated. White marble, reminiscent of the traditional kopitiam table top, flanks the entry at the bar counter and continues at the existing feature wall at the courtyard onto a long dining table top. Warm filament lighting enhances bespoke timber feature panels along the main circulation space, akin to timber ubiquitous in former shophouse interiors. Fresh re-interpretations of the traditional Peranakan and ceramic tiles line the walls.

Crafting Our service includes designing special products for individual buildings. These objects take their place in a framework which reinforces enjoyment in domestic settings. Our door handle is shaped to feel comfortable in the hand when gripped, and to have just the right amount of firmness when depressed. It turns a necessary, quotidian function into a pleasurable moment. Fabrics, too, in their combination of tactile and visual sensations, add to the warmth and intimacy of domestic interiors, just as they can humanise corporate or public spaces. They can affect the sense of light and sound to transform rooms from one use to another. Furniture also suggests how a room might be used and complements social interaction or private contemplation with appropriate physical comfort.
