50_house shortlisted for A+ Architizer Award
18 March 2015
Storp Weber Architecture, the practice of Bartlett BSc Architecture UG1 design tutors Sabine Storp and Patrick Weber, has been shortlisted for the Architizer A+ Awards for their 50_house project.
The architects have turned a former pub into a family dwelling fit for the changing needs required by the busy modern city living. Within the five-storey building, spaces have not been designed for a specific function, but are merely the infrastructure to allow the dweller to inhabit it in many different ways. A grey base colour chosen for the whole house – inside and outside – provides a ‘neutral’ tone against which a series of coloured rooms and plywood interventions are set. The red library (pictured above) has been designed for a set of folios and a collection of old 78 records forms the heart of the house. Plywood objects serve as banisters, storage space, or sets to play with.
Now in its third year, the Architizer A+ Awards are the definitive global architectural and product award programme with 90+ categories and over 300 judges honoring the best architecture, spaces and products.
