The project is in Charterhouse Street where the boundary between two London Boroughs form. With the immediate notion of opposites the project is lead to explore contrasting elements within the area; the diffusion of calm and busy, quiet and loud between Smithfield Market and the streets surrounding depicts the juxtaposition of lifestyle from day to night. These contrasting attributes are woven into the brief where the design essentially provides a live and work environment for the client.
More contrasting elements:
-City Workers and Butchers
-Facades: plain and decorative
-Contrasting political views
