103 New Bond Street, Haworth Tompkins

A 1:50 scale model of the internal structure of 103 New Bond Street for Haworth Tompkins.

The Launch of Venison Gallery is located on New Bond Street in Grade 2 listed premises originally built in the 18th Century. In the 1900s they were extended by the addition of one of the earliest car showrooms, in a generous, top-lit salon overlooking Haunch of Venison Yard and a glazed link to connect it to the Georgian townhouse on New Bond Street. Occupying the full depth of the city block, the resulting collision of spaces and histories forms a unique piece of hidden London.

Subsequent alterations and additions have masked the building’s unique qualities. The project removes later additions and restores the original spatial arrangement of the building, improving the circulation through a new double height atrium and visual links through the depth of the site. A new double basement has been constructed under the rear section of the site to provide a private viewing room.
