As architects for the overall concept and five of the seven buildings, the practice was charged with addressing the issues of relating what is a large scheme to the finer grain of the Fitzrovia streetscape, differentiating the office and residential components through detailing and entrances, and providing vertical articulation to ensure a legible bottom, middle and top.|
