Announcing renovation project at 3 Mills Studios

We are very excited to have been appointed by the LLDC to lead a design team in renovating and refurbishing parts of 3 Mills Studios, iconic TV and Film production studios in the heart of London’s most vibrant creative community, by the River Lea in Bow.

The project aims to fit-out and undertake remedial works to several of the characterful, historic and listed buildings along Three Mill Lane. The project will support the long-term viability of 3 Mills Studios through the creation of new workspaces and contribute to supporting the creative industries in east London. Our team includes the architectural practice Freehaus, and engineers OR Consulting and Momentum.

On Site at Kerasia House

We are pleased to announce that Kerasia House is beginning to take shape, with construction underway.

The new home will be situated within a grove of olive trees on a steep hillside, with expansive views over the Ionian Sea. The built elements of the project are distributed amongst a collection of small buildings set into the landscape, referencing the vernacular of Corfu’s hilltop villages.

Working with local builders and craftspeople, the external walls are being made from a local stone and terracotta blockwork, with a contemporary interpretation of traditional construction techniques used on the island. The walls are 650mm thick, to build thermal mass and protect against Corfu’s warm climate. Roof tiles have been reclaimed and windows are constructed from timber.

The project is due to be completed in spring 2022.

Announcing Leyton Mills Development Framework

We are delighted to have won an important commission to create an urban design strategy and development framework for the New Spitalfields and Leyton Mills area of the Lea Valley in London - for Waltham Forest Council. Gort Scott will be leading a team including We Made That, Hatch, Sweco, Cushman Wakefield and Turley.

The project will connect high street and town centre with the river and regional park as well as significant new and existing transport infrastructure. We are excited to establish a new vision for a site that has such high potential to benefit residents and businesses.

A range of public sector organisations including the Greater London Authority, Transport for London, City of London Corporation and London Legacy Development Corporation are supporting this project.

Fiona on the judging panel for AJ Small Projects Award

Fiona will be on the judging panel for this year’s Architects’ Journal Small Projects Award, alongside Pedro Gil, Selina Mason and Martin Edwards. The AJ Small Projects Award celebrates completed projects with a contract value of £299,000 and under.

Since its launch in 1996, the intention of the award has remained the same: From home extensions to restaurants, offices to shops, architects all over the country are busy working on projects that may not make the headlines but nevertheless give a real indication of the design talent in Britain today.
