Acoustic Shells in Littlehampton, England by Flanagan Lawrence

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Article source: Flanagan Lawrence

Sited in a sunken garden beside the beach in Littlehampton, West Sussex, UK, these ‘Acoustic Shells’ act as a stage and shelter for the local community. Prompted by a desire to reinvigorate Littlehampton with its gentility of the early 20th century, the shells materially enhance the public open space of the adjacent greensward and satisfy an essential social need that is not provided elsewhere in the area.

Dyson Campus Expansion in Malmesbury, England by WilkinsonEyre

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Article source: WilkinsonEyre

At the time that WilkinsonEyre was invited to design this new factory and headquarters building, Dyson was one of the fastest growing companies in the UK. The new development therefore needed to embrace an extensive range of uses and be built and occupied in a rolling programme. Our original masterplan for the overall site optimised the layout of a range of functions whilst incorporating flexibility for future expansion.

The design created an exciting yet economical space with an undulating wave form roof which ‘floats’ above the trees, disguising the bulk of the factory.

Barnham Road in London, England by MOCT Studio

Sunday, July 16th, 2017

Article source: MOCT Studio

East London-based MOCT Studio have re-planned and extended a suburban London semi-detached to provide a faceted roof social space for a large family.

The family of six had become increasingly cramped in the existing semi-detached, despite the previous addition of two small dormers, with shared children’s bedrooms, a single bathroom and fragmented living spaces that meant the family were rarely all in the same room.

The brief was to create a building that would provide a space for teaching music and drama and to celebrate and inspire students’ performance.
