Shepherdess walk has been shortlisted for the prestigious Mies Van Der Rohe Award. It is the result of a collaboration between Jaccaud Zein, award-winning Swiss architects, and Solidspace, multi-award winning London based developer. Located between Old Street and Islington, the Hackney Design Award winning scheme comprises of 5 apartments and 3 terraced houses, all of which are incorporated with the distinctive Solidspace DNA. The split-level configuration allows for visual connectivity within the interior of the house, and natural light floods into the homes.
The project is site-specific, complementing its Victorian neighbours in both scale and the materials used. Details have been meticulously planned, from the Belgian bricks to the rendered plastered beeswax finish of the interior walls. What was once home to UK’s first HIV clinic, has now been transformed to a series of homes that have a distinctive character yet contain all the comforts of a modern house.
