Nightingale Lane complete

Our house extension and refurbishment project at Nightingale Lane, Bromley, is complete. We visited recently and were thrilled to receive positive feedback from the client and take some photos of the interior. The use of corten steel cladding outside means we need to wait a few months for that to rust before its ready for a professional photo shoot!

Henderson Road planning success

Our house refurbishment and extension project in Wandsworth has received planning permission. The design includes an 8m long roof light and large picture window framed by concrete. We’ve worked with Hoare Lea Lighting to analyse the daylighting, minimising contrast across the space while maximising daylight.

New project in Catford

We have begun work on a new project to extend and refurbish a detached house in Catford, Lewisham. The original house dates from the early 1800s and has been extended a number of times, with many layers of history apparent. Contributing to this evolution of a home promises to be a fascinating process.

Bromley Nursey design progress

The challenge of converting a Grade II 1930s Church to a nursey has given rise to some interesting design ideas. Moveable partitions allow the nave to be used as a performance space, taking advantage of the great acoustics. As a nursery different configurations of the space can be created to suit age groups and activities.

A new project in a new borough

This is our first project in Wandsworth and takes our reach to ten London boroughs. We believe a breadth of experience and proven success in many locations is a great asset, and demonstrates that it is quality of design and approach that makes the difference.
