Our design for a small but perfectly formed flat within a prestigious mansion block in the heart of Marylebone for The Howard de Walden Estate has completed. It’s the first to finish in 2015, but plenty more to come…
We headed over to east London after work today to check out the latest project from our friends over at Tate Harmer. TreeXOffice is a collaboration between Tate Harmer, and artists Natalie Jeremijenko and Shuster + Moseley that looks at how we might better use our urban green spaces and change the way we work in the city. It’s simple construction consists of corrugated plastic, ECFE and plywood with a structure made up of solid paper composite ribs that we rather liked the look and credentials of, called Richlite.
The space is open for bookings all summer so we might just have to drag some of our clients over there on a warm afternoon.
