Whiteley's Crèche

London, UK

Whiteley’s crèche is located on the top level of a parking lot behind the historic, listed shopping centre of Whiteley’s in London’s West End. The small-scale building was designed to be instantly recognizable, the scale further broken down by expressing each interior space with its own distinctive geometry and bringing it into scale with the size and colour of surrounding delivery vans and automobiles, rather than reference the surrounding Victorian architecture. The oversized sculptural bollards protect the occupants from collisions.
