2014 Skyros, Greece

Another venture away form the UK (Luxembourg 2008 being the other). This time a private residence on the island of Skyros.  A great scheme and a great team, but the client decided on Greek experience.  Oh well still chasing the overseas project.  An ambition I may fulfill in the next 20 years!!!

2013 Cambridge Hall

A very small but very enjoyable project, albeit frustrating at the same time. It is the insertion of 3 flats within the grounds of a listed tabernacle church.  The purpose of the scheme to help raise revenue for the refurbishment of the church to remove it from English Heritage ‘at risk’ register. We have had extensive discussions with EH and have reached agreement on a form of construction. We just have the planners to convince now.

2012 Quest House

Quest House, a return to the projects of old. The conversion and refurbishment of a former office building. This time in Croydon, next to East Croydon Station. The beginnings of a much wider regeneration of the Croydon Area, which has now begun. The project takes on many lessons learnt over the years. The combination of making the best of the existing building and adding to with imaginative layouts that allow flexibility of tenure and good quality materials to ensure durability and longevity.

2011 Livity

Social Housing has certainly changed since we started out in practice.

Then, RSL’s provided affordable rent housing. Now with the reduction in grant and the need to generate revenue to expand, shared ownership and private sale seem to be the preferrred model of the RSL.  At livity we have a row of terrace houses that on the open market would sell for £1m. Once upon a time any family houses would be affordable rent, now private sale. We suggested if they were to be private sale, they should be exemplars. The houses have a range of spaces, filled with natural light. All the ingredients that would appeal to a home owner in the current market and help enhance value.

2010 Bright Buttons Nursery

August 24, 2015

20YOP_logo_banner2

A departure form architecture when we decided to open a day nursery on the ground floor of our offices. The enterprise has proved to be a successful one, thanks to a dedicated team. Experiences learnt as a governor at an infant school and support of a good friend and client from the education sector has certainly helped it succeed. Watch this space for further expansion.

2009 Upper Clapton Road

One that got away, largely due to the time.

Planning was granted for this scheme on the former tram depot site in hackney, but never built.  The scheme was presented at WAF in 2010. It could have provided more than 80 homes and upgraded B1 space in the former tram shed, with residential inserted above preserving the building and taking on ideas learnt at Morris House (2003).

2008 Belval, Luxembourg

July 27, 2015

20YOP_logo_banner2

This was a competition entry for a new engineering faculty in Belval, Luxembourg.

We made it onto the shortlist and exhibition in Belval. We focused not only on the teaching spaces but also the spaces between, taking on board current thinking that explored how people might learn in a digital environment. We looked at creating break out spaces, learning hubs. A great scheme, unfortunately not the winning scheme.
