Webber Street Studio in London, UK by Chiara Ferrari

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Article source: Chiara Ferrari

Emerging designer Chiara Ferrari masterminded the interior concept and fit out of a new studio space in South London, for photographer John Ross. When Ferrari was invited to work on the photographic studio’s interior design, the large, 400-sq meters space was just an empty concrete shell with no partitions. The designer’s concept plays with the contrasts between the existing space’s rough- and-ready quality and the sophistication of a new, neutral (black, white and grey) and contemporary material and colour palette.

Heatherlands Pool House in Devon, UK by Satellite Architects (designed with Vectorworks)

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Article source: Satellite Architects

Heatherlands is a substantial addition to an existing house, built in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Dorset Devon border. It responds carefully to the folding of the landscape and roof pitches of the existing house, The folds create splits which highlight views, both concealing and opening to them. A new living room forms a transition point between the old and the new, collecting reflected views and light. Situated to the West of the existing house, the structure takes the stance of a traditional outbuilding, acting as a paddock boundary whilst protecting the gardens. The addition defines a new approach to the building, entrance court and outdoor terrace to the South. Adopting a number of sustainable strategies the building includes passive ventilation, sustainable materials and highly insulated construction. The existing building is wrapped in shingle, which will weather together with the new larch rain screens, covering the addition.

Transforming King’s Cross in London, UK by John Mcaslan + Partners

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Article source: John Mcaslan + Partners

The new Western Concourse at King’s Cross opens to the public on Monday 19th March 2012. “The transformation of King’s Cross station by John McAslan + Partners represents a compelling piece of place-making for London. The show-piece is clearly the Western Concourse – Europe’s largest single span station structure and the heart of the development, but the overall project is far more complex: an extraordinary, collaborative effort that has delivered an internationally significant transport interchange, fit for the 21st century and beyond. We are very proud of our role as lead architects and master-planners of the King’s Cross redevelopment, and it’s immensely satisfying to see the project delivered on time, ready for the capital’s celebration of the London Olympics later this year.”

Shoreham Street in Sheffield, UK by Project Orange

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Article source: Project Orange

192 Shoreham Street is a Victorian industrial brick building sited at the edge of the Cultural Industries Quarter Conservation Area of Sheffield. It is not listed but considered locally significant. The completed development seeks to rehabilitate the once redundant building, celebrate its industrial heritage and make it relevant to its newly vibrant context. The brief was to provide mixed use combining a desirable double height restaurant/bar within the original shell (capitalising on the raw industrial character of the existing building) with duplex studio office units above. These are accommodated in an upward extension of the existing building in a contrasting but complementary volume, a replacement for the original pitched roof.

Marni Sloane Street in London, UK by Sybarite

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Article source: Sybarite

Incorporating organic sculptural elements, the design for Marni’s flagship London store creates a unique sense of visual connectivity that encourages full exploration of the two level shop. The gleaming white resin ground floor seamlessly stretches up to the first floor so that both levels appear attached. Stainless steel steps have been cut into the inclined wave that connects the floors and add to the flowing sense of movement. Polished stainless steel rails, used for displaying merchandise, migrate freely through the space like legs of futuristic insects.
