The Hidden House in London, England by AR Design Studio

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Article source: AR Design Studio 

AR Design Studio is delighted to announce the recent planning approval for its latest project, The Hidden House.

Situated in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Hidden House is a four bedroom home that has been fastidiously engineered to sit seamlessly within its stunning surroundings. Set on a disused riding school that was once a scar upon the countryside, the house has been designed to complete the landscape. The house’s geometry was informed by the North Downs’ geological arrangements. By embracing the erosion patterns of the area, the form was sculpted to become a continuation of the hill in which it sits. Taking further measures to blend the house in to the landscape, the project form uses ‘Dazzle Camouflage’, a tactic employed by ships during the First World War to deceive the eye and create illusions that help break up the solid mass.

Mathematics: The Winton Gallery in London, UK by Zaha Hadid Architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

It is a wonderful coincidence that we started work designing the Science Museum’s Mathematics Gallery in the bicentennial year of the birth of Ada Lovelace, a pioneering woman in the history of computers and of ‘poetic science’. Her inspirational influence on our approach to the design of the project, from inception to completion, cannot be overstated. Just as her Notes unravelled the abstract world of the analytical engine and its logic to generations beyond, we hope the design of the Mathematics Gallery complements the curatorial ambitions to inspire and engage further generations with the instinctive and physical aspects of mathematics. Collections like those housed within the Science Museum in London are instrumental in allowing the human mind to explore the many dimensions of innovation. The new group of objects on display in the Gallery is meticulously curated to narrate seemingly everyday moments in innovation driven by mathematics.

Walmer Yard in London, England by Peter Salter

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Article source: Peter Salter 

Walmer Yard is the first residential scheme in Britain by Peter Salter, the internationally acclaimed teacher and architectural designer. Seven years in the making, four finely crafted houses built around a shared courtyard in Notting Hill are now being shown to the architectural press.

The houses reflect Salter’s unique approach to the design of spaces for living. The structure, volumes and materials are employed to create a series of rooms and circulation spaces that are precisely tuned to domestic use, private peace and sensory experience.

Arts building for The American school in London, England by Walters & Cohen Architects

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: Walters & Cohen Architects

In 2011, the practice won an invited competition to design a new arts building for the well-established independent school in St John’s Wood. Taking its cue from the mass and footprint of the listed, semi-detached villas on the site adjacent, the four-storey building is designed to resemble a single large property. The complexity of the project is heightened by its location on a prominent corner plot in the St John’s Wood conservation area, where proposed developments attract a lot of attention.
