Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Foster + Partners

Foster + Partners has been appointed to redevelop the iconic Snowdon Aviary at ZSL London Zoo. The Grade II* listed structure, designed by Cedric Price with Frank Newby and Lord Snowdon in 1962, was the first aviary in Britain that offered visitors a ‘walk-through’ experience, bringing them closer to the birds in their natural habitat. The structure will now be modernised and upgraded to provide a brand new walk-through home for the Zoo’s troop of colobus monkeys.

Eaton Mews North in London, England by Roselind Wilson Design

Friday, November 4th, 2016

Article source: Roselind Wilson Design

Eaton Mews North is a 1,700 square foot mews house located in Belgravia and arranged over four floors. Roselind Wilson Design was appointed as the interior architect to redevelop the structural interior layouts, furniture layouts and design of the kitchen, bathrooms and all interior finishes and details including doors, skirtings, joinery, architectural and decorative lighting, the staircase and all wall finishes. In keeping with the client’s brief to develop something that is unique, the look is undoubtedly layered with focus on textured fabrics and finishes and the striking use of battered and aged bronzes with bleached floors and textured timbers set against polished and honed marbles with exquisite veining and textured tiles with understated wall papers to create a subtle sense of glamour. The palette was very textural with bronzes, beiges, taupes and chocolates being the foundation colours with slight accents of green tones. The use of these tones allows for a calming sense of luxury with no brutal features that dominate the space.

Amerland Road in London, England by Giles Pike Architects

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Article source: Giles Pike Architects 

The prospect of building a small stand-alone new house on this very restricted garage plot seemed like an improbability until we started to explore the site in three dimensions. We concluded that if we turned the house upside down and arranged the bedrooms and bathrooms on a lower ground floor, with the main living rooms on the ground floor and upper mezzanine levels, then a workable and viable plan form started to emerge. Our brief was to build the largest house possible on this 60 m2 site, which was located at the end of a garden on Velonia Gardens and next to an electricity substation on Amerland Road, with very limited access for excavation. In essence we designed the house in section rather than in plan ie the plan form was generated by the section, and the section through the house allows sunlight to penetrate deep into the interior spaces. Although the house is small in scale, it is not small in stature – in a manner of speaking it is a house that punches above its weight! When you look at the house from the outside it looks remarkably small, but once inside it has the most extraordinary light and airy feel. The positioning of the staircase, central in the house, and being a design feature in its own right encourages the eye to travel up to the mezzanine floor level and down to the basement level, therefore allowing one to perceive the three dimensional quality of the house. On the ground floor, which comprises the entrance off Amerland Road and the kitchen, dining and living areas, one is aware of the space above and space below. The staircase is a relatively lightweight fabrication in steel and glass, with open treads in hard wood, and has a delicacy and a lightness of touch, which echoes the way the house as a whole has been conceived.

100% Design, the UK’s largest design trade show, announces its line-up of specially commissioned installations and features, reflecting both conceptually and physically this year’s theme of ‘experience’. Each installation will play on the senses to map a multi-sensory journey through the show, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in contemporary product design and be inspired by the possibilities enabled by great design.

The Central Bar at 100% Design has long been a hub for networking, a symbolic destination at the heart of both the show itself and the wider design industry. This year the 100% Design team has brought together a stream of uprights with colour scales adding drama to the central space, defining the area and providing a moment of shelter. The dramatic overhead installation is intended to provide a focal point for the entire show, surrounded by specially devised fins that define the entire space.
