Designers align have worked with Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons on Omeara, an exciting new 350-capacity live music venue, bar and performance space in Flat Iron Square in London’s Borough, which has now opened its doors to the public.
‘I’ve been playing and putting on shows in London for my entire adult life.’ Ben Lovett commented. ‘Without the grass-roots music venues in this city, the band and I simply wouldn’t have achieved what we have, so I have a lot to be grateful for. Over the last few years, London has lost so many of its brilliant music establishments and I want to do what I can to try and reverse that decline.’

The Hurlingham project in London involved the construction of a sports complex including four indoor tennis courts and four squash courts. The racquet hall, designed by David Morley Architects, is 35 metres wide and 55 metres long. The main span consists of suspended steel beams. To give the courts space and reduce the costs, the beams are spaced with large gaps of 12.9 metres. To fill these gaps, the architect wanted to see wood.

At Shepherdess Walk you have the character of a period property, coupled with the feeling of space, huge windows to bring in lots of light and an extremely environmentally friendly home with the advantage of low bills.
If you enjoy modern art and modern living, you want a home that reflects your contemporary taste, not another run of the mill Victorian terrace house; if you want design that adapts to your lifestyle, not the other way round; a space that you can live, work, eat and play in; a home that you can grow old in – then Shepherdess Walk is for you.

Transformed into a vessel of natural light.
Situated in the heart of Hampstead Village, our proposal for this once rambling 18th century listed building was developed with local conservation authorities to respect the picturesque setting of the High Street and Perrin’s Court. As a result the external appearance harmonises with the historic setting, whereas the interior by contrast enabled us to design a series of bright and contemporary spaces enhanced with bespoke joinery and panelling.

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.

Comprises a historic detached building with Georgian façade but with origin, in part, said to date back to before the times of Henry VIII.
The front elevation, facing the river, dates from the mid to late 18th century and hides much of the older building which is basically 15th century, altered and enlarged in the 17th and 18th centuries.
