Move out of the City of London? Not if you apply the concept of bespoke tailoring to where you live. A flat only 15 minutes from Tower Bridge has been completely redesigned by Studio Alexander Fehre. Intelligent use of this small space was guided by the owner’s living needs. An unusual kitchen solution freed up space in the living area, while integrating much greater functionality.+

East London architecture studio Y A O has designed a bubble tea shop which features an architectural optical illusion.
Commissioned by Milk Tea & Pearl, the brief was simple – to provide a refreshing, memorable interior. The shop is located at Boxpark, a temporary shopping centre made from cargo containers, in the London borough of Hackney.

Working on behalf of the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy (LCCCP), pH+ architects have received planning permission for an extension to their new premises, in the London Borough of Haringey, which will transform the way the charity works with children and the wider public. The children, young people and wider community will benefit from a range of new services and facilities, including a hydrotherapy pool, which have been funded by the generosity of private foundations.
Through a lengthy consultation process, the architects have worked with the charity to develop a centre with an inclusive design; one that helps children in particular develop in a series of differing environments designed to stimulate the senses through sounds, smells, light and varying surfaces. The architecture therefore becomes a tool to nurture young children. For example, ramps and lifts are important for accessibility but stairs will be employed at various key moments as part of the children’s walking programme. An external walkway wraps around the building, offering views out to the woodland landscape and allowing for movement through the fresh air. This walkway is enclosed by a timber screen which itself becomes a giant xylophone for children to play with. Sections of the cladding will be reflective so that children can observe their own movements.

For the Serpentine Pavilion 2016, we have attempted to design a structure that embodies multiple aspects that are often perceived as opposites: a structure that is free-form ret rigorous, modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both box and blob.

In the heart of London’s West End we have substantially upgraded this six storey building, providing cutting edge flexible office accommodation and a striking new entrance sequence. Drawing inspiration from the unique exterior of the Rodney Gordon 1980’s rocket-like building, ‘Patalab’s design picks up the futurist-like qualities and transforms the common parts into an enticing spatial arrangement, using mirrors, lighting and reflective finishes. A bespoke built-in seating area on the ground floor responses to the prestigious location and forms a welcoming feature in the entrance lobby.

This Victorian house in a conservation area originally had a dark and compact kitchen with unsatisfactory views of the garden. The brief was to create a light, spacious home for a growing family, with a side return extension that provided sufficient width for an island unit and dining table, allowing the kitchen to function as a social space.

The brief for the new MADE store is to re-evaluate the concept of a ‘showroom’ and incorporate technology in a way that would genuinely add value to the customer experience.
Located in one of Europe’s busiest shopping districts, the new store experience begins with the external windows. Rather than display product behind the glass, the glazing itself becomes a full scale representation of the product in an intricate temporary installation.

City Road is a multi-unit developer led project located in East London. The existing building is located in a conservation area and required two separate planning applications before the design was implemented. The first planning application involved a re-design of the exterior of the building and reinstating existing blocked windows.
