Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) has been selected by Chelsfield deputy chairman to redevelop the existing modernist Commonwealth Institute in Kensington and Chelsea, London. The redevelopment will be achieved by injecting life in to it with new residential.
“OMA will explore a number of uses appropriate to the existing design, capitalizing on the building’s dynamic interior spaces. Careful consideration will be given to the relationship with Holland Park, possibly extending the park condition across the site connecting to the street. Any new residential development should serve to complement the qualities of the existing building.”
