Set in a Victorian neighbourhood, this backland site is overlooked on all sides. Our response was to develop a low, inward looking courtyard house, offering both visual and acoustic privacy.

LLI Design recently completed a total redesign and refurbishment of a 4 story 1970’s townhouse in Highgate, a leafy and desirable part of London.
The house had tremendous potential and the new owners, a young professional couple, wanted to embrace the 1970’s feel, rather than try to ignore it, albeit not in a cliched way. Top of their wish list was a contemporary glass and steel open tread staircase and a master bathroom with a distinctive WOW factor.

Foundry Mews is a surreptitious new-build, mixed-used development on a backland site in Barnes, West London. Tucked away behind a traditional range of shop buildings fronting Barnes High Street, the site was a long abandoned dilapidated MOT and car body repair workshop. The brief for this sensitive site was to create studios and housing. We chose to take the model of the artisan mews where studios and living space share an intimate courtyard setting. The linked gabled buildings use vernacular forms reminiscent of small-scale workshops. The scheme comprises six duplex dwellings above a plinth of studio workspaces with two additional units and an apartment in the gabled northern block. While the brick gables and slate roofs merge into the surrounding street-scape, contemporary screens formed within the brickwork gables shield terraces of the apartments. This unassuming addition to the neighbourhood is an essay in placemaking and offers a thoughtfully re-worked typology for so called ‘difficult’ sites.

Gerry Judah was asked by BMW to come up with a sculpture, bigger and better than anything done before, to commemorate their centenary at Goodwood Festival of Speed in Chichester, West Sussex. With over two hundred thousand visitors over one weekend, this is the global platform where the world’s most amazing motorsport machines are in evidence, static and dynamic. It is also where one can see a sculpture that each year is different, dramatic, exciting, uncompromising and quite frankly, spectacular! All designed for the past 19 years by Judah himself.
