Daykin Marshall Studio

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

As the sun goes down on 2020 here's another sneak preview of our Devonian project for the Ashridge Estate. The 'East Pavilion' links the original Manor House to a beautiful 19th century arboretum. Giant timber sliding doors open to let in the morning light. Let's all hope for a brighter 2021. Happy New Year!

Progress on site at Corduroy House is shaping up. You can guess how it got its name! Project Architect Ayla Riome discussed and developed the design with our fantastic clients through lockdown, working remotely, so it's very exciting to see it in real life!⁠

We enjoy questioning and testing the everyday materiality of buildings, to bring something new or unexpected to our projects that still manages to feel familiar - we call it the canny uncanny.⁠

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.

Here's the latest from site at Cunetio House. Thank you to Simon and his team at Hungerford Land @cunetiohouse on the progress so far and attention to detail. We know it's been a difficult year in so many ways, but seeing the house take shape in the Autumn sunshine is uplifting. Even though we make the drawings, it's always pleasing to see how closely they describe the built result.⁠

Having just received an exciting progress update from site we'll be posting shortly, we’re looking back at drawings for Cunetio House made in 2018. The drawings, made in-house helped develop the design as well as give a clear description of the proposal to our client, the planners and the parish council. Congratulations to our clients Hungerford Land @cunetiohouse on the progress so far.⁠

This five bedroom new-build house sits at the edge of an historic Wiltshire settlement in the North Wessex Downs AONB and references the village vernacular in a refined, yet restrained design⁠.

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.⁠

Following an invited competition, we're excited to have been appointed to renovate the clubhouse at Wigmore Lawn Tennis Club in Streatham. It’s an historic club with a lovely Edwardian building dating from 1911. Facilities will be improved for members, made fully accessible and updated to LTA Safeguarding guidelines. Lost features of the building will be restored, social spaces reinvigorated and giant hats will be compulsory.⁠

As some age groups head back to school in England for the first time in ten weeks we’re reflecting on the amazing job parents across the country have done and continue to do homeschooling - probably for the first time and with no formal training.

As one friend said the other day ‘it's totally changed how I think about my child’s education...it’s no longer a process, it’s personal’.

At Family Commune, the lessons continue in the living room ‘classroom’ today. Everyone looks very attentive! Thanks to our clients for this great photo.
