RIBA London Interim Director Owen Wainhouse said: “The RIBA Windows project highlights the versatility of RIBA architects and their unique ability to look at space differently. It’s an exclusive and high profile opportunity for the profession’s emerging and more established practices to test new ideas, apply their ingenuity and resourcefulness to different scales and work with space and structures in new and exciting ways.
“Now in its 6th year, the RIBA Windows Project on Regent Street has been triumphant in showcasing high quality design and detailing in collaboration with world famous retail brands, and this year has been no exception, with architects exploring new concepts in craft, heritage and scale.”
