Join us as Groupwork founder Amin Taha presents the development of 168 Upper Street on Dezeen Architecture Project Talks. Sign up to the webinar on Friday 2nd July at 1pm to discover the history behind the landmark building which houses our One.Six.Eight showroom.
The Story of One.Six.Eight
Aria commissioned the project in 2012, after launching a design competition for proposals, selecting Groupwork’s vision to interweave the site’s historic roots with cutting-edge construction processes.
The apartments housed within the upper floors of the building echo the retrospective nature of the façade with areas of exposed concrete, imprinted with ornate Victorian-era wallpaper patterns. Windows punctuate the structure with offset positioning between the interior openings and exterior details.
