House for Art Students
Designed as shared accommodation for art students, this building is arranged as a series of introverted sleeping chambers accessed from large open verandahs and common spaces. The design focuses on questions of climate, topography, and material detailing in a way redolent of some Asian architectures. The fabric draws on a small palette of durable self-finishing materials such as copper, fibre-cement, and red ironbark. Normally manufactured items were hand-made on site.

In this project the accommodation brief is broken down and expressed as individual buildings which address their respective street frontages. On one side, four 1-bed apartments are formed whose ground floor mass continues to the opposing street of St John’s Grove forming a plinth. Across this plinth then stand two 2-bed maisonettes articulated as individual architectural forms facing East.

A new family house in the sub-tropical climate of Brisbane, Australia. The scheme leads with a large folded exterior screen which works to encircle and protect the spaces from the subtropical sun and provide privacy. A rich spatial environment results inside, with internal and external rooms intermingling and sharing material and atmospheric qualities. Shaded outdoor space is provided at multiple levels including a ‘crows nest’ at the top for views, special meals, and occasional sleeping in the summer.

Development site study and scenario testing for new multi-residential development. The scheme addresses difficult site geometry and access yet works to enhance the secluded setting. Originally a goods-yard and lay-by adjacent to an active railway station, the triangular site is here transformed to accommodate nine one-bedroom units each with private external space. The challenge of the site shape and the architectural design of the units (together with its solutions to acoustic, access, and overlooking issues) creates a unique development.

New-build studio pavilion. The design used the innovative structural solution of a timber portal frame to allow the full height of the interior space to be free of any structural ties. The building is braced by its marine plywood cladding, which is protected from the weather with a high-performance Sika coating system.

HOLLAND PARK, LONDON, UK
£9M major alteration and extension of mansion house with diplomatic functions. In the major refurbishment and fitout of the grade II listed mansion house, the scheme pursues the dual approach of careful restoration of the original listed building and the insertion of room-like contemporary elements manufactured off site and placed in the floor plan like pieces of furniture. The 500 sqm extension to the rear of the property accommodates major new spaces including a large ceremonial dining hall, swimming pool, and related leisure facilities. The other-worldliness of the underground extension is exploited architecturally, with major rooms/halls reading as separate buildings set within an abstracted water landscape. A fully landscaped garden is reinstated over the extension.

Extension of a large house in South London. The design relies on an ambiguity between the new work as a house extension or as a detached garden entity. The glazed 'pavilion' with its planted roof cuts into and extends the existing kitchen, connecting it to the landscape beyond. Previously lost, the original rear façade with its bay window is returned to the garden elevation.

Reorganisation of the existing plan layout and creation of a new 'landscape building' extension radically transforms this original brick end-of-terrace house. A new polished concrete slab replaces the previous timber ground floor, greatly increasing ceiling heights and transforming room proportions. A large new living room/conservatory is provided to the rear garden in the form of a grass-roofed pavilion, clad in oak. Carefully detailed glazing is used to maintain the distinction between the extension building and the original house.

The capability of materials to form space sometimes outstrip their social use. In this house, the original 60’s free-spanning structure had been buried in a cellular Victorian plan, reflecting suburban domestic values of the day. This project therefore radically opens the spaces, matching the promise of the original structure, and synchronising the use with today’s living practices. The scheme includes a striking suspended system of joinery which branches off the original structure.

The rear extension of a tall two-storey terrace house in south London is expressed as a separate smaller building, yet connected to complementary with the main house. The extension accommodates a generous new family kitchen and window-seat, day lit from above, which releases spaces in the existing ground floor allowing them to combine and reorient in new and positive ways. A set-piece composition to the rear garden juxtaposes the contemporary elevation of the extension with the Victorian detailing of the existing house.
