Royal Academy of Music

London (UK)

This ingenious project in a particularly challenging historic London location is defined by its roofline of Nordic Blue copper, a material that the architects have been exploring for over a decade.

Architect Ian Ritchie said: ‘Our interest in Nordic Blue copper goes back to 2004 and instigated research and development carried out by its manufacturers for a previous project. For the Royal Academy of Music project, Nordic Blue Living 1 provides just the right hue which will continue to develop naturally over time’.
