HERITAGE + RETROFIT | the addition of a timber bay dining hall breathes new life into an early work by renowned George Gilbert Scott. Carbon emissions are reduced by two thirds using breathable insulation and plaster finishes, air-source heating and embodied energy conscious materials.
TIMELESS MATERIALS | The embedded and uncanny connection between new and old at La Tour Maison captures our approach to sensitively, yet confidently working with historic buildings.
VILLAGE CIVIC | As winners of the Village Cup at Lords, cricket in Sessay, North Yorkshire, is a focal point for the village. Proposals for a cricket pavilion and community hall offer a new, public place for all ages
LEAVES OF COPPER | Working closely with and learning from specialist metal roofing craftsmen Nick Fletcher allowed us to tailor bespoke copper shingles for the mansard roofs at The Fairway in Leicester
REIMAGINING THE MANSION BLOCK | Nine apartments in the Highgate Conservation Area revisits a relevant typology for suburban low-rise densification in a sensitive, yet gritty North London setting
BESIDE THE SEASIDE | Unique locations require crafted, canny design solutions. Never could this be more true than this new home embedded into the seawall, looking out over Margate's famous sands.
SOLAR CONCRETE | The stepped in-situ cast walls at Concrete House surround the courtyard garden, buffering the internal spaces from overheating and radiating retained heat during evenings on the terrace
COLLECTIVE LIVING | With the pressure on available housing and land only increasing, Family Commune explores a model for co-living in Bethnal Green, East London

Merry Christmas to our followers and family of collaborators! ⁠

#Merrychristmas #snowflake #festive #peoplemakingbuildings

Remote working from our La Tour Maison project in France this week has been a magical place to begin the wind down to Christmas. This is the view from the top of the tower, over the village and down into the Dordogne river valley. We hope you are all beginning to feel festive too.

Corduroy House has been photographed by the talented Nick Dearden. Here's a preview of the garden extension. We'll be sharing more on the project in the new year.

We are architects, people who make buildings. Good places are a product of those that use, design and make them and so, though we are a small studio, we are part of a much larger family of collaborators.

Working with a local family we're investigating potential sites and early concept ideas for a Paragraph 80 home in rural Nottinghamshire. This is a sketch for a walled garden courtyard house sited near to long-lost manor within naturalised meadows and grazed parkland.

All through the Summer our window exhibition of working models will be on show at Amanda Meade Interior Design @amandameadedesign We use models to test, develop and explore. They're also a brilliant way to communicate and share our ideas in an accessible and engaging way.⁠

Thank you to Amanda for hosting the exhibition as part of @daykinmarshall and @amandameadedesign architecture + interiors collaboration.⁠

Our recent submission for a Gardener's workroom at the garden museum is a red drum set at the edge of St. Mary's Gardens in Lambeth. Its colour references local landmarks, such as Lambeth Palace and the icons of London Transport, as well as a gardener's best friend - the ladybird.

No two projects are the same and we like to take the opportunity to try new materials to suit each site and client. This is a sample board for our recently completed project in South London which used pigmented concrete against a granite terrace.⁠

The spire for Sessay Community Hall and Sports Pavilion is intended to be a beacon to the village and a focal point for information.⁠ In the studio we enjoy designing through model making and like to use local materials to blend with the tones, textures and history of the sites we're given.⁠ Photo @nickguttridge

We're thrilled to have been shortlisted alongside a brilliant cohort of projects in this year's Architects Journal Small Projects Awards for Old Four Row. You can read more about the project here on our website and in the latest journal online and in hardcopy.
