We are excited to have been shortlisted by Brighton & Hove City Council for our concept designs for regenerating London Road. We proposed a series of follies which inspire a sense of delight and take cues from local precedents such as Brighton Pavilion, Clockhouses, the Pier and boat-building structures!
Our installation for the IN TRANSIT Festival is taking shape! Opening to the public on the 18th July!

Work starts on the Photo Express shop - just the sign board and external shutter painting to go now!
We've been developing shop front designs with Jimmie of Photo Express (family business of over 20yrs) and Mr.Patel of Barking News and Wines.
The Photo Express window will be opened up to bring more daylight into the shop, along with new neon sign, A-board, new artwork to the roller shutter and an interior display of Barking archive high street photos and passport photos from past years.
News & Wines pavement objects (Milk crate, newspaper rack, Lyca mobile stand and bubble gum dispenser) will be cleaned up and reclad to allow for poster display, notices and latest Lyca offers to the sides of the objects. [+ a small thank you to Mr.Patel for giving us a Valentine's day treat of a bottle of wine after today's progress meeting!]
