RIBA Great British Buildings Tours: Curzon Bloomsbury

RIBA Great British Buildings Tours: Curzon Bloomsbury

An exclusive architect-led, behind-the-scenes tour of this RIBA London Award winning building by Takero Shimazaki Architects. The building was described by the jury panel during the RIBA Awards process, saying:

Taking on an icon is not an easy task but when client and architect understand each other, the job is less daunting. It is clear here that t-sa and the clients hit the ground running. The success of the project owes much to the holistic approach to the interiors.

Eileen Gray furniture is used throughout giving an added touch of design excellence to the environment and working well with the ambience of the different spaces. There are thoughtful touches elsewhere including the re-appropriation of the iconic ‘Renoir’ sign in the rear of the largest screening room.

Join RIBA London on this unique tour to discover the stories behind this iconic cinema, what inspired the architect and what it means to have won this prize. Book now for your chance to hear the what makes this an award winning building.
