The Park House, London

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 restrained when seen in context, but to provide interest and delight on closer inspection. This achieved through a palette of different but complimentary brick types, coursing, pointing and patterns, as well as carefully detailed balconies, deep reveals and roof profiles.

Mixed-Use Scheme, London

Mixed-Use Scheme, London

This concept design for a new urban quarter in north London was based around boldly-coloured, sculptural blocks that sit in a high-quality, varied landscape. It was proposed to open up a culverted river that ran under the site to provide the setting for a new art gallery and restaurant. 

Brixton Road, London

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 space.

West Hendon

West Hendon

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.

Hampshire Street

Hampshire Street

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.

Listed warehouse, Manchester

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.

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.
