Interior remodelling of a 2 storey apartment on the Thames. The apartment sits near the finishing line of the Oxford / Cambridge boat race, at a bend in the river with an unobstructed views east and west.
Views are created through the interior to give a sense of the bigger whole. Oak is used for both flooring and skirting, and run across the base of internal doors. It is also taken diagonally up both walls of the stair to the sunroom above.

Covent Garden Restaurant
Fit out for a Japanese restaurant within a Grade II listed Georgian townhouse in Covent Garden.
Each floor is minute so the programme had to be stacked, one function on each level. The design seeks to make simple well-proportioned rooms that hint at the interior’s Georgian origins.

John Scott Book
A book made in collaboration with New Zealand photographer Mary Gaudin.
Now sold out.
It provides a photo essay on two houses by New Zealand architect John Scott (1924-92); the Werry House and the Francis House, which sit side by side.
They are late works in good condition, but have slipped from memory and today are largely unknown.
Our intention was to focus on just a few things in these buildings; doors and windows, gutters and eaves and thresholds between interior and garden.
These simple facts of building are common to almost every house, so commonplace in fact as to barely register in discussion of architecture today.
However in Scott's hands these facts became ideas which he returned to throughout his life.
Fit out of a restaurant in Kingsland Road, Dalston for chef Brett Redman and Natalie Lee-Joe.
The room lies on an axis with the pedestrian crossing, so a direct relationship was sought with the street. A roof shape sits over the dining area and is folded it back up over the kitchen, creating a simple form when viewed from afar. At night, the interior has a lantern like quality.
The bar is made of sycamore. The floor is oak laid diagonally. The walls and bar front are light grey Valchromat.
