Come and see it for yourself here
Our joined design development with Fleet Architects and BB Heritage Studio for Peterson's Smokehouse includes a dark industrial material palette with colour highlights which takes cues from the fish smoking process: the iridescence of fish skin, the coral pink of salmon, the dirty yellow-grey of haddock, the black tar linings of the smoking houses.
Work is underway laying 4,500 colour shingles on our Living Room outside the new British Council offices at IQL Stratford.
Completion due for this October!
Planning permission has been granted on our LIVING ROOM public realm pavilion in Stratford. LIVING ROOM pavillion belongs in a series of playful, fun and engaging house-like forms, which are strategically located around the IQL public realm, offering escapism, tranquility and play!

Some great and inspiring modelmaking, sketching and briefwriting at our Skill Up Summer School at Riba London!
This week we visited Thornton Heath High Street with a group of young people, helped them build a scale of model of it and used RIBA library as inspiration to create their own public interventions for the site.
Help us investigate ideas for the re-use of 2 historic buildings within Grimsby’s port! The Grade II listed Peterson’s Smoke House and building 89 (former Fred’s Fisheries) will receive National Lottery Heritage Funding for their refurbishment. The funding of the project is dependent on a strong business plan which will support the regeneration of the port, aiming to attract further investment to the area; bringing new life, jobs and opportunities.
Your input could shape the future of this part of Grimsby. We’d love to hear from you!

It is marvellous to be involved in the first conservation and restoration project in the historic ‘Kasbah’ area of the Port of Grimsby and work for Great Grimsby Ice Factory Trust, North East Lincolnshire Council, and Associated British Ports Ltd. We will be working in collaboration with Fleet Architects and BB Heritage Studio to unlock the potential of Peterson’s Smokehouse building and create a fully operating smokehouse with an associated retail outlet!
It has been over a year since we finished the Thornton Heath Regeneration and our recent visit to the High Street was a great opportunity to catch up with the many local shopkeeepers! The shopkeepers gave us their lowdown about how their revamped shops and new branding are improving their business and making them more noticed on the High Street. Hurray for local businesses! For more project details visit our website and High Streets Shopfronts blog.
We can't wait for our 5 day Skill Up course for ages 15-18 during summer on Monday 29 July - Friday 2 August! Join us to explore a London High Street, its people and its architecture and get a taste of what the design process is like as an architect!
