Fisherton Street / Carrick Yard - EH Smith

Fisherton Street / Carrick Yard


Located close to Lisson Grove in the City of Westminster, Fisherton Street and Carrick Yard, are residential developments comprising 168 affordable and private homes neighbouring each other. A community space and sports centre add to the diversity and distinctiveness of the project, consolidating Fisherton Street’s role in the regeneration of the area.

Fisherton Street is conceived as a 21st century interpretation of the classic London mansion block, traditionally built in brick, classically and elegantly proportioned but detailed in a crisp modern style.

Sculpturally – the building appears as a monolithic brick block – carved to reveal its depth and mass – into which were inserted delicate metal balconies. The building’s base is defined by rusticated brickwork and the generous glazing of the entrance. In the symmetrical façade above – the carved balcony recesses and double height window openings in the brickwork are elegantly proportioned.
