The YOU&ME design refurbishment of Peterson’s Grade II listed Smokehouse in Grimsby for the Great Grimsby Ice Factory Trust has been submitted for planning!

The project is a collaboration with our friends BB Heritage Studio and Fleet Architects


Great to see our High Street regeneration workshop for teenagers at the RIBA London featured in the new film for the Clore Learning Centre!

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

This new outdoor pavilion is nestled within the landscape planting by Gustafson Porter + Bowen and mixed-use by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners

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!

Full project available here



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.




Our project with Fleet Architects is nearly finished!

Get in touch with Luton Culture and The Hat District if you are looking to rent a new dining/music venue or open plan workspaces..


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!
