The design divides the site into four ‘modern mansion blocks’ – which vary in height to mediate between the substantial massing of Hindon Court on Wilton Road to the west; and the lower levels of Gillingham Row to the north, the Conservation Area to the south and the Queen Mother Sports Centre (QMSC) to the east.

 

The base of the building is tiled with glazed ceramics to resonate with the frontages of ‘public’ buildings nearby (e.g. pubs and stations) – and is sculpted into arched forms that echo some of the finer ground floor architectural treatments found locally.

 

The upper parts are a combination of light buff London stock brick (as on Gillingham Row) and white detailing common to Pimlico.

 

The roofs are a contemporary take on historic pitched and butterfly geometries found in local roof forms.
