JRA’s Great Arthur House has been featured in Harriet Thorpe and Taran Wikhu’s 2022 book ‘The Sustainable City’ for Hoxton Mini Press. The book celebrates architecture that helps Londoners to live, work, play and share resources in a way that benefits not just the city, but our entire planet.
JRA re-clad Great Arthur House, a Grade II listed landmark, which is part of the Golden Lane Estate designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon and completed in 1956. The new cladding replicates the delicate extruded profiles of the original façade, together with the distinctive use of yellow glass. The façade was installed with residents in-situ and was designed in consultation with the City Planners, 20th Century Society and Leaseholders and tenants. The works significantly improve the performance of the original windows with a double glazed and thermally insulated prefabricated panel system.
The project was completed in August 2018 and won a 2019 RIBA National Award.
