The Interlock Fitzrovia: A Masterpiece in Design

May 7, 2019    |   Panny Antoniou

The Interlock at 35 Riding House Street is one of London’s most characteristic and architecturally interesting new developments.

With our New Homes Department and Commercial Lettings Team both heavily involved during the design process of this iconic property, 35 Riding House Street was constructed with the occupier in mind. This five storey mixed use property based on the common tropes of Fitzrovia townhouses differentiates itself from other properties in the area due to the nature of the brickwork. Working with brick specialist fabricator Forterra, our client HGG London was able to create a development which is unique and modern which simultaneously fits with the traditional 19th Century architecture of the Fitzrovia area.

Created using a collection of 44 seemingly misshapen bricks which do not look like they should fit together, the end result is a striking new building in the heart of Fitzrovia. The brickwork patterns which are formed as a result of this construction make it incredibly recognisable.

This attention to detail in design is not purely limited to the exterior. There has been significant attention to detail paid to the interior of the property also with the three new residential units (all let by RIB’s Residential Lettings Team) boasting deep light wells and and skylights with internal patios on the lowest floors. Internally, these new apartments feature natural stone worktops, oak floors, sprayed timber kitchens, and terrazzo bathrooms.

In keeping with the longevity and long term sustainability of this scheme, there is a gallery space in the basement, perfect for hosting a multitude of events and exhibitions. The ground floor café is fully fitted out as an espresso bar, benefitting from high ceilings, a lower ground floor seating area, and a 3.4m frontage. This property is the ideal location for a new local coffee shop, making 35 Riding House Street a real Fitzrovia community gem for years to come.
