Graphic Design Office, Chiswick, London, UK
This Grade-II listed station office was disused and in poor repair. A dynamic design utilised an existing sub-floor void and added a mezzanine and glazed entrance to reorder circulation and open up the buildings spaces. A blend of sympathetic restoration and exciting contemporary architectural detail transformed the building into a modern desirable office space.

£5.6M 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.
