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

Article source: MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

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.

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Article source: Space Group Architects

Shoreditch is no longer up and coming; it is already here, it is alive and it is buzzing. This part of London has been gradually transformed from an arty but gritty neighbourhood into one of the capital’s most desirable areas without having lost its charm.It was our aim to capture this special moment in time. Theexisting building sits in a conservation area and used to contain dysfunctional offices throughout. Part of the brief was to achieve a Change of Use for a duplex penthouse at the top.

Modern House in London, England by LLI Design

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Article source: LLI Design

The brief was to create a 700 square foot extension to house an open plan kitchen / living / dining room to this lateral house in Highgate, North London.

The house is in a very secluded position, surrounded by greenery, completely hidden from view, the only clue as to what lies beyond is a simple discrete gate set in the fence.

Spice Market London

Imagine a wall of spices containing all the colours, flavours and fragrances of Asian cuisine. Imagine a spice cabinet, 2 floors high, 24 metres long and revealing every ingredient the chef will need to create the distinguished Spice Market dishes. This spice cabinet is here, as the centre-piece of the restaurant and starting point for a great dinnertime. When you look up from the street and see through the transparent restaurant façade, you can even see the cabinet from there.
