Daykin Marshall Studio

RURAL SUSTAINABILITY | Renewable technologies have been subtly integrated to vastly reduce carbon emissions and retrofit draughty old buildings for 21st century use. The estate’s natural resources were harnessed to reduce the embodied energy of buildings materials
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
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

Daykin Marshall Studio are architects based in London and the East Midlands specialising in houses, housing and public placemaking

Old Four Row will be exhibited at two exhibitions during this years London Design Festival. We will be holding a reception at the Oxo Tower exhibition. Get in touch to find out more.

We are excited to announce that our project Old Four Row has been shortlisted for the Wood Awards 2022.

The @WoodAwards is a chance to showcase the diverse, creative, and high-quality buildings and furniture being made using the world’s only truly sustainable and renewable material – wood.

Congratulations to all the other shortlisted projects, we're in great company.

Commissioned by the Architects Journal, Jay Merrick has written an erudite and thoughtful critique of our ten year year long project at Ashridge in North Devon, published in August's AJ Rural Issue. Thank you Jay for your writing, the insightful discussions during our visit together and wider conversations about our work over the years.

Corduroy House in Grand Design's September issue

Corduroy House has been photographed by the talented Nick Dearden and is published in September 2022's Grand Design's magazine.

It's the Wednesday tennis social at Wigmore Tennis Club in Streatham and Mark has just finished photographing our retrofit of the clubhouse with photographer Nick Guttridge. Watch this space for more on the project, which not only upgraded the 1911 building to meet LTA safeguarding and access requirements but also provides the members with a light filled bar and, as seen here, an outdoor deck overlooking the courts.

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.⁠

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.⁠

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.
