Plevna Crescent

Planning submitted

27 July 2017

We’ve submitted plans for 72 new homes at Plevna Crescent in Haringey. The development is arranged over four apartment blocks and offers a mix of studio, 1, 2, 3 and 4-bed apartments. The proposed scheme embraces the existing landscape and responds to neighbouring residential areas to create a strong sense of place and community for future residents.

A family of four lightweight pavilions, ‘float’ on top of a grounded stone plinth. At ground floor, gabion walls create a sturdy base that helps bed the scheme into the landscape. Cedar shingle cladding reflects the ecological setting and the irregular texture compliments the non-uniform arrangement of windows. Over time the walls will be inhabited by local wildlife, bringing nature and ecology into the development. Green roofs will also offer habitat for existing ecology.

Marlborough College

Project on site

25 July 2017

Works started on site at the Grade II listed Memorial Hall, Marlborough College this week. The hall had become unusable as a performing arts facility due to poor acoustics, inadequate staging and circulation. There was also limited provision of public spaces with no toilets, coat room, lobby or foyer.

We are working in collaboration with Diamond Schmitt Architects to refurbish and improve the auditorium through a series of sensitive interventions. Our aim is to create a 21st century performance space that celebrates the building’s heritage.

Our plans for the redevelopment of an industrial site in North London have been given the green light.

The mixed-use scheme features 1000m2 of class B1 floor space at ground level with residential units above. The residential element sits on a communal landscape podium level and is made up of a mix of 1- and 2-bed apartments as well as 3-bed duplex houses.

The design uses materials that reference both the old industrial buildings and the new warehouses, including exposed metal cladding and brick.

We’ve just been awarded planning for this 91-unit landmark residential scheme in Crawley town centre.

Made up of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments, the new building provides much needed housing while improving the public realm by creating active street frontages with clearly defined entrances, upgrading the landscaping and introducing a high-quality modern building into the town centre.

Massing responds to and respects the smaller-scale residential developments behind the site while the varied material palette of brick and aluminium cladding gives the scheme a contemporary edge.
