Narrow House in London, England by FORMstudio

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Article source: FORMstudio

The narrow deep plan of this tall terraced late 19th century building was ill-suited to its previous use as offices, with escape distances pre-determining the necessity for the centrally located lift and stair core that sub-divided the floor plate into small inflexible work spaces.

This configuration was, we recognised, ideally suited to the creation of residential space though, with naturally-lit rooms of domestic scale located to the front and rear, and support spaces located inboard around the retained central stairs and lift. A use further suggested by the domestic style of the Dutch-gabled brick front elevation.

Ashburnham Community School in London, England by Foster + Partners

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

Article source: Foster + Partners

The opening of the new children’s playground at Ashburnham Community School in West London was met with shrieks of delight, as the children got a first taste of the recently transformed school grounds. The project was initiated and funded by The Bryan Adams Foundation, that has been supporting the school since 2014, and designed by Foster + Partners, working closely with playground designers Made From Scratch. The refurbishment is a key part of the school’s strategy to create a holistic learning environment for its pupils. It replaces asphalt play areas with a dynamic mix of hard and soft surfaces, natural vegetation, and specially designed play structures for the school children, while also incorporating state-of-the-art sports courts.

Briardene in Hampshire, England by OB Architecture

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

Article source: OB Architecture 

Briardene is a small development of 2 detached houses on the site of a former bungalow in the village of West Wellow in Hampshire.

Our developer client wanted to maximise the potential of the site with a sensitive but contemporary scheme that would find favour with the planning officers. Our challenge was to convince the local authority and neighbours alike that a net gain of one unit was acceptable on what is quite a restricted site.

Salters Acres in Hampshire, England by OB ARCHITECTURE

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: OB ARCHITECTURE

Salters Acres is a development of 3 detached houses on Stockbridge Road in Winchester.

The 3 houses were conceived in response to the suburban setting of the site on the edge of Winchester; the character of the area is quite mixed so we set out to establish a design that would feel comfortable within its setting without overtly replicating one of the various architectural styles in the vicinity.

Paddock House in Hampshire, England by OB Architecture

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: OB Architecture

Paddock House was formerly a charming New Forest house whose character had been consumed by a series of unsympathetic modern extensions. It had been left unloved for a number of years and had fallen into a rather tired state; and its poor condition was sadly highlighted by the beautiful paddock setting which surrounded the house.
