Gretel House by Simon Gill Architects

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

Article source: Simon Gill Architects

Gretel (a wire-haired miniature dachshund) found her existing conservatory cold and poorly related to her garden.  This scheme therefore replaces the conservatory with a new extension that fully opens out to her grounds. Her requirement for the possibility of being fed tit-bits of grilled sausages led to the design including a barbeque, which becomes an extension of the side wall to the kitchen/ living area.

There is an adjacent seat where her owners can sit and pamper her in the sun. The main opening to the extension containing the sliding doors has an outside “raincoat” of brick with a smooth inner lining expressing  the cavity wall and creating a sense of interior comfort.  Bespoke cast stone forms a masonry course over the lintel which resolves the weight of the wall above and emphasizes the openings of the weep holes.  The floor is resin with underfloor heating, providing a comfortable lounging surface that pleasantly warms her tummy.

Overlooking the Thames, the 1970s townhouse owned by lighting designer Ben Rousseau backs onto a small marina and is located where the London boat race finishes at Chiswick Quay. The design was relatively modern when Ben bought, but the four-storey property still needed a lot of work.

The London Library in St James Square, London by Haworth Tompkins Ltd

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

Article source: Haworth Tompkins Ltd

The London Library, founded by Thomas Carlyle in 1841, is the world’s largest independent lending library, with over 1,000,000 books and 8,000 members. Since its inception the Library has evolved into a complex amalgam of spaces that originate from a building sited on the north west corner of St James Square. The building has a discrete formal façade that provides a foil for a more aggregative interior. Over the years additional buildings have been annexed to house the ever-growing needs of the Library and its users, including a book stack built in 1922, and an extension to the north built in 1934; the Anstruther Wing housing rare books, was built at the rear of the 1920s book stack in 1995.
