Stairs become storage in artist studio conversion featured online in Architect’s Journal
House refurbishment completed at Hurlingham Gardens. The master ensuite consists of a band of Carrara marble running from wall to wall forming the bath and shower tray.
Recently took the opportunity to visit the Bagsværd church in Copenhagen by Jorn Utzon. An austere and orthogonal exterior conceals an interior of soft, white concrete curves. Controlling the admission of daylight into the interior was a key concern for Utzon. Natural light is admitted through a clerestorey at the high point of the roof and glows softly across the undulating surfaces of the ceiling, creating a calm and tranquil yet dramatic space. Elsewhere the detailing is simple and robust, with exposed concrete and beautiful pale wood doors bringing a touch of warmth to the predominantly white interior. An inspirational space to visit.

It is now ten years since Another Place, was installed on the beach between Crosby and Blundellsands, part of the coastline that runs to the North of Liverpool. Though first becoming aware of the piece shortly after the initial installation I only visited for the first time last week.
Glazing elements have been fitted by Compass Glass and kitchen furniture pieces are being installed. Careful detailing of components such as secret gutters, thinness of walls, glazing with black powder aluminium coating, gives this new added part of the house a contemporary distinction against the Victorian dwelling.
The internal refurbishment at Greville Road Studios is now complete! The studio contains a giant bespoke storage unit with an integrated staircase to the mezzanine. The module of the storage unit is derived from the staircase tread lengths.
The glass floor inserts are installed along the perimeter to the mezzanine and admit light down to the studio space below. Glass balustrades are fixed with 100mm gap between each panel.
