Loophouse 2 in Fulham, London by Paul McAneary Architects Ltd

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects Ltd

This project redefines the internal organization and exterior form of an existing 1960’s single story ranch house. The project for a new master bedroom suite and a guest room leverages the limited scope of work by using the overall new form to give the entire house a new identity. The new massing is positioned forward in relationship to the existing approach and seems to rise upward as the hillside falls. The new master bedroom provides this new front with a formal face, yet does not yet imply entry. As you move further into the site the appearance of a courtyard caught between the existing form and the new massing reveals the new entry.

The New Generation Youth and Community Centre in Wells Park, Lewisham, London by RCKa

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Article source: RCKa

RCKa played a key role in the genesis of the project, having identified the full extent of local authority site ownership and the opportunity to replace a structurally unsound facility with one wholly aligned with emerging youth provision policy.

The practice also identified the capital funding stream (having worked on the part-funded OPEN youth venue in Norwich), and were instrumental in the preparation of a funding bid to the government’s MyPlace scheme, which was subsequently selected from over 240 competing bids.

Hackney Marshes Centre in London, England by Stanton Williams

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Article source: Stanton Williams

Hackney Marshes is a unique place. With its origins in ancient woodland and medieval common land, it remains a vast open space. It is a place set apart from the city by a boundary of trees and by the River Lea. Yet it also connects communities, being an important green space in a densely-populated area. In addition, as the London home of amateur Sunday League football, it draws people from across the capital.

SERPENTINE SACKLER GALLERY in London by Zaha Hadid Architects

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

The Serpentine Sackler Gallery consists of two distinct parts, namely the conversion of a classical 19th century brick structure – The Magazine – and a 21st century tensile structure. The Serpentine Sackler Gallery is thus – after MAXXI in Rome – the second art space where Zaha Hadid Architects have created a synthesis of old and new. The Magazine was designed as a Gunpowder Store in 1805. It comprises two raw brick barrel vaulted spaces (where the gunpowder was stored) and a lower square-shaped surrounding structure with a frontal colonnade. The building continued to be in military use until 1963. Since then Royal Parks used the building for storage. The Magazine thus remained underutilised until now. Over time, much amendment and alteration has occurred inside the historic building and its surroundings.

Barnsbury House in London, England by MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013


This mixed-use project is located fronting one of London’s attractive garden squares. Planning approval has been granted and construction will begin shortly. It contains three floors of residential units above commercial business space. The existing square, like many in London, has developed over the years with a large variety of different building types, scales and styles.  It is this variety that gives the square its character and charm. Each period has provided its own example of what was, at the time, considered contemporary architecture. This design is intended to provide a well mannered and proud example of what our era can contribute to the rich architectural heritage of the area.
