Felsham Road is a bold and radical re-working of an early Victorian Semi-detached house in Putney. Our brief was to extend and improve the property to achieve its maximum potential and in so doing, we have exploited the volume within the house to create double height spaces.

Knight Dragon unveils a new £1billion landmark, designed by international architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava, at the heart of its transformation of Greenwich Peninsula.
This major new landmark is set to transform Greenwich Peninsula, London’s emerging cultural district. Residents and visitors to the Peninsula will arrive from the tube into an 80ft high winter garden and glass galleria. The scheme will total 1.4 million sq ft including a new tube and bus station, theatre, cinema and performance venue, bars, shops and a wellbeing hub. Above this will rise three towers of workspaces, apartments and hotels, all connected to the Thames by a stunning new land bridge.

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.

The project is a remodelling and extension to a house in a conservation area for a young family with one child. The Brackenbury House forms part of a terrace of five Lillian Villas built in 1879. The “L” shaped double-fronted villas are brick and stucco faced, two-storey high, with front gardens forming a landscaped frontage, set back from the street.
