Model photos of a proposal for the re-use of a Victorian bottle kiln in West London.

We have just completed a feasibility study for this house conversion in Islington, London. The proposal includes a series of sunken courtyards and new spaces at ground floor level that would create a new entrance to the house and a more direct relationship with the garden. The project is expected to be submitted for planning in March.
RIBA Shanghai windows - Design development images showing light and shadow experiments for Ziggy Chen’s shop window.
These are the latest images of a project for an office building refurbishment in Hammersmith we have been working on for the past few months. The current proposal seeks to increase the area of the building by adding two storeys of accommodation to the existing structure, located within a tight site near Hammersmith Station. The process has opened up the opportunity to enhance the presence of the building on the street by creating a new tiled facade.
We are very pleased to have been selected to take part in the RIBA Shanghai Windows Project 2014. In collaboration with fashion designer Ziggy Chen we will create a giant fabric lantern for their flagship store at Xintiandi. Inspired by traditional Chinese lanterns and shadow puppet theatre, the temporary installation will display projections that blend patterns at different scales, from fabrics to historical maps of the city playing with visual perceptions of personal and collective space.
Planning permission granted for Semi-detached House - After a radical re-thinking of the rear facade, Oxford Council has granted planning permission for this residential conversion near the city centre. The project is expected to start on site in the new year.
Bow Arts starts on site - Contractor Sail & Sons has commenced works for the refurbishment project at Bow Arts Trust. The image shows the strip-out works in the space that will become the main office area. Completion is expected in early 2014.

The Studio will continue its focus on East London and this year it will be investigating the potential for urban and architectural interventions within Bow. An area demarcated by a historical accumulation of natural and artificial boundaries adyacent to the 700 year old Bow Church, will be proposed as the site for a cluster of buildings to house an array of complementary organisations. Using the model of social enterprising as a reference point, the project briefs will speculate with the potential that these groups have as drivers of community-based regeneration and property development.
