The Park House, London
A 45-apartment, mixed-tenure housing scheme in Acton, west London. The site is adjacent to a recently realigned main road and a local park, and the building responds to its varied setting through two conjoined blocks defined by the tenure split. The elevations of the two blocks are given simple, complementary treatments of tonally varied brickwork panels, with robust cantilevered balconies. The podium element is expressed in a dark engineering brick, with areas of perforated brickwork to provide natural ventilation to the car park and plant rooms.
This residential project, on the site of a former
builders' merchant, carefully places two new apartment buildings into a
sensitive context. The two blocks respond differently to their
settings; the front block continues and terminates an existing terrace
sequence, with a strong rhythm to the streetscape, while the rear block
is more horizontal in feel. The scheme as a whole is designed to be
when seen in context, but to provide interest and delight on closer
inspection. This achieved through a palette of different but
brick types, coursing, pointing and patterns, as well as carefully
detailed balconies, deep reveals and roof profiles.
Brixton Road, London
Mixed-tenure affordable housing scheme for Network Housing Group that
includes houses as well as apartments. The scheme repairs a gap in the
sequence of Georgian terraced houses that line Brixton Road, and
'bookends' the sequence with a taller element facing a small green
Mixed-Use Scheme, London
This scheme for a high-density retail/residential development proposed using factory-made panels of brightly coloured bricks together with angled forms to create a dynamic and interesting piece of city.
First phase of the £200m regeneration of the West Hendon estate in north
London, overlooking the Welsh Harp reservoir. Our approach to the project involved a series of meetings with
local residents (some of whom are to be rehoused in the new building),
planners and Councillors. This genuine commitment to pre-application
consultation resulted in a swift planning process and a modern design
that all parties are delighted with.
A mixed-use scheme for residential units above office space, on the site
of an old laundry in north London. The brick facade of the existing
building is treated as a plinth for two new pavilions above, the
elevations of which are overlaid with different materials that respond
to the varied context; brick and mesh to the street, a timber screen to
the rear. The pavilions are set around a new landscaped garden above the
office use, which is lit by skylights and new windows punched into the
retained brick wall.

Apartments and Offices, London
This mixed-use scheme in south-west London (designed while at Assael Architecture) is in a sensitive Conservation Area and required careful and lengthy negotiations with the Local Authority. It is currently on site, with completion expected in 2014.
Listed warehouse, Manchester
An award-winning refurbishment of a Grade II Listed warehouse in Manchester (completed while at Assael Architecture) to provide apartments, offices and a restaurant. The strategy throughout the project was "light touch"; new elements hang from above, or are freestanding, meaning minimal structural alterations to the building fabric.
