We are very happy to announce that after an invited competition we have been selected to design the new Parish Rooms, adjacent to St. Mary Magdalene in the centre of Richmond, for the Richmond Team Ministry. This is a significant new commission for the practice and we look forward to the challenges of site and brief.
Our winning scheme drew inspiration from some ancient rock sketches, perhaps scrawled by Pythagoras himself, the famous son of Samos, which we found on that Greek island….
Many thanks to the Rev’d Tim Marwood for the photograph
The 20th Century Society has supported our proposal for the restoration and extension of a house built in 1955 by Rosslyn Harper for himself. The house incorporates references to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. The sensitive siting and scale of the extension distinguishes from the main house while referencing Harper’s design.
Reliance Arcade has just been signed off as practically complete. While we’re in lock-down, we’re unable to get down to take any finished photos so here’s a throwback to one of our favourite work in progress shots. We love the effect of the light on the clear lacquered steel structure of the original 1930s standard patent glazed roof lights reflecting off the glass to the shop’s first-floor storage areas.
We have recently applied for permission to build a 2-storey residential property above an existing shop in the old port of Dun Laoghaire, south Dublin.
The proposal includes partial demolition of derelict buildings along the 50m site and the development will provide a large 3 bedroom family home in the commercial centre of the town.
