Mayfair House by Squire and Partners

The terrace showcases real and manufactured vegetation.

LONDON – Squire and Partners recently completed a private house in Mayfair, London, which features a bronze leaf facade. The project mirrors an established Virginia Creeper on a facing building on Curzon Street.

Folded aluminium leaves – 4,080 in total – are crafted as metallic shingles, which cover a three-storey elevation and rooftop pavilion. The leaves were researched and developed working closely with Swiss manufacturer Tuchschmid.

An existing 18th century façade facing Waverton Street was maintained, and a new building comprising three linked volumes was designed, creating a unique home in central Mayfair.

The contemporary interpretation of leaves are crafted as a metallic shingle, subtly varying in tones of bronze to mimic organic growth.
