Join Henry Squire as he talks through the use of craft, ornament and innovation at Hans Place, a collection of apartments in Knightsbridge which present a modern interpretation of the intricate gauged brickwork which characterises the area and its much loved red brick buildings.
Henry has led the design team to develop bespoke, crafted brickwork that features on spandrels, lintels and the chimney of the new development.
Initial prototypes were tested and evolved with Squire and Partners’ in-house modelshop, then simplified to a geometric brick that minimised the number of different components.
Squire and Partners bring themes of ornament, craft and innovation to bear on their work, which is concentrated in London and features high-profile projects such as One Tower Bridge, Mayfair House, Hanover Street and Reiss HQ.
