Sep 2021Design District Opens!

The Greenwich Design District opens to the public on 15th September 2021. The Financial Times architecture critic, Edwin Heathcote writes of our two buildings A4 and B4, "Kohn has clearly had fun... with chunky brick columns, a green trellis of a facade and glass etched into block patterns, it plays with reality and representation, with scale and style."

Jul 2021Covent Garden Rooftop

Construction has started on a new rooftop apartment in Covent Garden. '"I’ve always been intrigued by the additional spaces of a house,” says David Kohn, “such as a bay window or an extension, because they’re often where the delight is. They’re the things people remember.” And so he’s designing a three-storey home in central London, for an architecturally enlightened property developer, that “is all the extensions of a house without a house”, a compilation of constructional off-cuts, of curves, bays, projections and recessions,' writes Rowan Moore, the Observer architecture critic. Visit the Guardian's website to read the whole article. For more project information visit Baylight Properties' website.

Jun 2021"Full-on PoMo Revival"

The Guardian architecture critic Oliver Wainwright describes David Kohn Architects' two buildings for the Greenwich Design District as "a full-on PoMo revival... channelling James Stirling’s 1987 Clore Gallery at Tate Britain, his pair of buildings feature bright green square grids contrasting with red bricks, colonnades of fat columns, and a jaunty rooftop sign." Read more at the Guardian website here. Visit the project page of our website here. The buildings are due to complete later this year.
