The Design Museum of London in England by OMA with Allies and Morrison

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Article source: OMA 

In December 2007, along with five other architectural firms, OMA was invited by Chelsfield deputy chairman Sir Stuart Lipton to consider the potential of the Commonwealth Institute site. OMA’s proposal sought to save the grade II* listed building by reinjecting life into the modernist monument, the new home for London’s Design Museum, while retaining its distinctive copper roof and parabolic form. OMA with Allies and Morrison were the architects responsible for the design of the refurbished structural shell and external envelope of the building. The project required a close working relationship with Design Museum interior architects, John Pawson.

ZSL London Zoo’s Snowdon Aviary in England by Foster + Partners

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Foster + Partners

Foster + Partners has been appointed to redevelop the iconic Snowdon Aviary at ZSL London Zoo. The Grade II* listed structure, designed by Cedric Price with Frank Newby and Lord Snowdon in 1962, was the first aviary in Britain that offered visitors a ‘walk-through’ experience, bringing them closer to the birds in their natural habitat. The structure will now be modernised and upgraded to provide a brand new walk-through home for the Zoo’s troop of colobus monkeys.

Woodpeckers in Hampshire, England by Strom Architects

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Article source: Strom Architects

Woodpeckers is a private house in the New Forest, designed as a two-storey replacement for a 1930s bungalow. The site sits amongst fields and private woodland just outside the National Park, with a heavily-treed and well-established garden.

The clients wanted a comfortable contemporary home as a weekend house, which would eventually become their permanent home in the future. With busy lives in London, they needed somewhere that they could retreat to at weekends to relax and to entertain friends. As keen gardeners and enjoying the outdoor lifestyle in the forest, they wanted a strong relationship with the garden, as well as the surrounding countryside.

Hartrow in Winchester, England by Strom Architects

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Article source: Strom Architects

Hartrow is a large-scale refurbishment and extension project to a 1960’s house in Winchester. The original house was unusual in its residential street setting, presenting an entirely different aesthetic, orientation and layout to its neighbours. Part of the challenge was to ensure that the works would celebrate its mid-century styling whilst bringing its function and performance up to twenty-first century standards.
