A mixed use business, retail and residential quarter on the north side of Euston Road, British Land’s ‘Regent’s Place‘ development already has public art from the likes of Antony Gormley and now, thanks to architects Carmody Groarke – in collaboration with engineers, Arup – now has an awe-inspiring new pavillion with LEDs embedded in the cobbled surface below that bathe the steel plate, suspended eight metres high by thin poles, in an ethereal golden light. The result of a competition run by The Architecture Foundation in 2007, Carmody Groarke’s pavillion “examines how the public space is defined without enclosing it” and with grace, elegance and sheer sophistication, answers the competition brief to mark the Osnaburgh Street entrance to Regent’s Place with a self-assured swagger…..
