2020 shortlists

Apartment Block
by Coffey Architects

Shortlisted in the apartment interior of the year of Dezeen Awards 2020, Apartment Block is a two-storey apartment covered in thousands of wooden blocks in London's Clerkenwell.

Working within a relatively small footprint, the efficiency of the apartment refurbishment was paramount to the project, as well as the materials and craftsmanship.

The apartment was carved out of over 30,000 individually cut and laid cross-sectional blocks of European Oak, creating a contemporary insertion into a Grade II-listed former school classroom.

The blocks playfully nod to the Victorian heritage of the building, yet their meticulous application has created a granular richness resulting in a beautiful, calm and tranquil place to live.
