The Hurlingham Racquet Centre in London, England by Metsä Wood

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Article source: Metsä Wood

The Hurlingham project in London involved the construction of a sports complex including four indoor tennis courts and four squash courts. The racquet hall, designed by David Morley Architects, is 35 metres wide and 55 metres long. The main span consists of suspended steel beams. To give the courts space and reduce the costs, the beams are spaced with large gaps of 12.9 metres. To fill these gaps, the architect wanted to see wood.

At Shepherdess Walk you have the character of a period property, coupled with the feeling of space, huge windows to bring in lots of light and an extremely environmentally friendly home with the advantage of low bills.

If you enjoy modern art and modern living, you want a home that reflects your contemporary taste, not another run of the mill Victorian terrace house; if you want design that adapts to your lifestyle, not the other way round; a space that you can live, work, eat and play in; a home that you can grow old in – then Shepherdess Walk is for you.

The Hidden House in London, England by AR Design Studio

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Article source: AR Design Studio 

AR Design Studio is delighted to announce the recent planning approval for its latest project, The Hidden House.

Situated in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Hidden House is a four bedroom home that has been fastidiously engineered to sit seamlessly within its stunning surroundings. Set on a disused riding school that was once a scar upon the countryside, the house has been designed to complete the landscape. The house’s geometry was informed by the North Downs’ geological arrangements. By embracing the erosion patterns of the area, the form was sculpted to become a continuation of the hill in which it sits. Taking further measures to blend the house in to the landscape, the project form uses ‘Dazzle Camouflage’, a tactic employed by ships during the First World War to deceive the eye and create illusions that help break up the solid mass.

Walmer Yard is the first residential scheme in Britain by Peter Salter, the internationally acclaimed teacher and architectural designer. Seven years in the making, four finely crafted houses built around a shared courtyard in Notting Hill are now being shown to the architectural press.
