Haworth Tompkins worked with The Royal Society of Arts on a feasibility study to remodel and obtain planning and listed building approval for the front of house reception spaces of their unique London headquarters, a series of linked, eighteenth century townhouses designed by Robert Adam and subsequently remodelled by Arthur Bolton, an Adam scholar, in 1932. Through a careful process of subtraction and intervention, the scheme rearranged interior spaces to create a new reception area, a selection of exhibition spaces and more legible circulation routes.
