ARCHITECTURE | Shoreditch House

ph / Tim Soar for Dezeen

I often discover similarities between arts like styling, editing, painting and due to this project, even architecture. It is in the details of mixing materials, find matching -or controverse- fabrics, layering the structures, finding the ultimate combination between functionality and aesthetics. For me, the Shoreditch House in London did the best job. It is shaped like a traffic light, but in neutral colours. The old pub annex private members club has turned into one of the most oblivious boutique hotels in the surrounding area. The modern steel is adding the extra height the building desperately needed. The amount of contrasts put in one construct is adding a touch of modern simplicity into this age-old pub. Drinking a classic pint in a fresh surrounding. And fresh is what we like.
