Add another gem to Chelsea ‘s ‘Starchitect Row’ – the much anticipated Metal Shutter Houses  by Shigeru Ban are finally complete! Featuring a simple geometric construction set off by an ever-changing facade of individually operable shades, Ban’s design is a subdued and elegant form offering some much needed visual relief against all the glitz and glam of the surrounding glass-walled skyscrapers. Hit jump to see some photos of the completed structure as well as some pics snapped up by our very own reporters!
