Character + Capacity Study, Dacorum, Hertfordshire, UK

Assessment of urban characteristics of Dacorum’s towns and villages to guide urban design policies in the Council’s new LDF. The assessment makes a rigorous analysis across an array of criteria ranging from heights, densities, and setbacks, to materials/textures and street-scape elements. A series of specially selected sites were tested across the Borough for their capacity to absorb further housing. Particular account was taken of the Dacorum Urban Design Assessment in order to determine appropriate massing and plot configurations for new development. The findings of the study were used to extrapolate estimates for housing capacity for the wider Borough. The project included training of Dacorum BC planning officers with the new recommendations.

EDUCATION

 

University Engineering Faculty, Doha, Qatar

New mini-campus for the engineering departments at Qatar University, Doha. The design creates finger-like buildings housing six departments, each with a top-lit internal street forming a hive of department activity. Buildings and nodes have distinct entrances and identities to assist way-finding. Connecting all are a variety of common hubs, courtyards, and a larger scale seed pod of common facilities shared between departments. 
[ 1106 ] Qatar University

 

Education Landscape,  Altrincham, Cheshire, UK

Ubiquitous perimeter security fencing is here replaced with careful topographic design, connecting the play space with its surrounding landscape. A dynamic central spine element performs multiple functions: houses play functions along its length; links park and play space levels; mixes equipment for different age groups; provides shelter and enclosure; organises and centralises circulation; and provides access to high level play equipment. 
[ 0620 ] Urban Splash

 

University Residential + Faculty Buildings, Baghdad, Iraq

New university teaching and residential buildings providing: facilities for the departments of mathematics and physics, administration offices, rooms for PhD candidates, and a Halls of Residence for postgraduates. The design posits a central courtyard which acts as a focus for landscaping, entrances, circulation, shared cafes, and meeting rooms - the communal heart. The buildings adopt a common material palette but have radically different characters: teaching spaces project into and engage the courtyard; the residential wing is introverted with enigmatic screened bedroom bays (as traditional Baghdadi shanashils).

Geological Outpost, Nunavut, Canada

Library + Religious School, Kadhimiya, Iraq

Part of the Holy city masterplan. The Library and Religious School buildings are paired inside a large architectural decorative screen. Movement through the screen and building portals and interstitial spaces is rich with spatial complexity and interplay of natural daylighting. Separate reading rooms for men and women crown the Library building in the intense booklined reading rooms on the top storeys. In relative contrast, the Religious School building has layers of formal teaching rooms at entry level, but which breaks into an informal assembly of rooms and elevated small courtyards higher up where the residential community of scholars live.

HOUSE

 

Free-span House, Woodsyre, Sydenham, London, UK

The capability of materials to form space sometimes outstrip their social use. In this house, the original 60’s free-spanning structure had been buried in a cellular Victorian plan, reflecting suburban domestic values of the day. This project therefore radically opens the spaces, matching the promise of the original structure, and synchronising the use with today’s living practices. The scheme includes a striking suspended system of joinery which branches off the original structure.

Diplomatic Residence, Holland Park, London, UK

£9M major alteration and extension of mansion house with diplomatic functions. In the major refurbishment and fitout of the grade II listed mansion house, the scheme pursues the dual approach of careful restoration of the original listed building and the insertion of room-like contemporary elements manufactured off site and placed in the floor plan like pieces of furniture.  The scheme also includes a large underground new-build leisure facility and dining hall. The 500 sqm extension to the rear of the property accommodates major new spaces including a large ceremonial dining hall, swimming pool, and related leisure facilities. The other-worldliness of the underground extension is exploited architecturally, with major rooms/halls reading as separate buildings set within an abstracted water landscape. A fully landscaped garden is reinstated over the extension.

Extending this large house in South London relies on an ambiguity in the new work as a house extension or as a detached garden entity. The glazed 'pavilion' with its planted roof cuts into and extends the existing kitchen, connecting it to the landscape beyond. Previously lost, the original rear façade with its bay window is returned to the garden elevation. Internally, services and clutter are absorbed by two dynamic walls, leaving a floating oak bench and seat to lead the composition.
