Creek Road Receives Planning Permission

Planning permission was granted last night for our mixed use scheme on Creek Road in Greenwich. The proposals include commercial and retail units at ground and basement levels, with a variety of residential units above. The volume of the building is sculpted to respond to its urban location, with balconies cut into the mass and fourth floor is set back to break down the overall massing. The façade relief is detailed to express the masonry frame and produce an elegant composition using high quality materials and robust detailing.

Electricity Exhibition Opens at the Wellcome Collection

The exhibition we designed for the Wellcome Collection ‘Electricity: the spark of life‘ has opened in London before it travels to the Teylers Museum (Haarlem) and the Museum of Science and Industry (Manchester). It chronicles the story of electricity, and how people have tried to understand, unlock and control this invisible force. From the discovery of static electricity, through to self-sustaining cities, the story thematically explores society’s fascination with this phenomena and its inextricable connection to life and death.
