Background

The Cooperage is an industrial building constructed in the early 1900s. Chris Dyson Architects have revealed and celebrated the original character of the building, whilst introducing elegantly detailed contemporary interventions.

The interior of the building has been cut and crafted to allow light into the glassroofed dining area, and into the dramatic volume of the triple-height living space.

A black steel staircase links all the complex volumes, arriving at the ground floor level on a dramatic concrete landing, suspended within the open space below.

The scheme maximises the available space within a severely constrained site, overlooked on all sides and with light only available from above.

The jury was impressed by the obvious engagement of the family with the various spaces provided, including the large volumes for living, the well-considered bedroom layouts, and the various terraces providing views over the rooftops of the dense urban location.

The finishes of the building are excellent, a combination of concrete, black steel, and exposed brickwork providing clarity and robust architectural expression.
