Foundry Mews in London, England by Project Orange

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: Project Orange

Introduction

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.

Pitch-Gable House in London, England by Paul McAneary Architects

Sunday, May 15th, 2016

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects

On a complex corner site in a London conservation area, the largest ‘pitched gable’ house form’s volume is intersected by two smaller house forms at non-orthogonal angles. Gutters and utilities are hidden, providing a clean lined exterior. Frameless windows are kept to a minimum on the street side, opening up at the rear for a large light filled living space. The design offers a bold response to the need for sustainable living. The house will boast excellent eco credentials using Passivhaus principles, incorporating solar panels, a ground source heat pump, maximum insulation and grey water recycling; whilst technological features work in tandem with the carbon neutral natural building materials. Paul McAneary Architects have re-interpreted the traditional house volume to create a new architectural formal typology.
