Brunel Museum

The Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe is located within Brunel’s Thames Tunnel Engine House, which is a Scheduled Monument. Following the installation of a separating concrete deck above the tunnel the museum has also taken a lease on the Grade II* listed circular underground Sinking Shaft.

This project is phase 1 of a wider masterplan for the museum, developed in collaboration with Grimshaw Architects. It provides inclusive access to the Sinking Shaft, with a high level viewing platform and stairs to the lower level. This has dramatically improved visitor access to the shaft as well as providing facilities for the museum’s program of performances.

York St John University
We have been commissioned to complete a new Creative Centre for York St John University to support new innovative courses, which comprises 2,600 sqm of flexible teaching areas, with a column-free floorplan to allow for a variety of potential configurations and greater modulability. A 210-seat rectangular auditorium is wrapped in pre-fabricated timber. A new atrium will become the civic heart of the site with 550 sqm of group learning and breakout space.

Built in 1915 by Charles Canning Windmill, Belsize Fire Station is a Grade II* Listed building located in Belsize Park, London. Closed in January 2014, it was described as ‘one of the most distinctive and original of a remarkable series of fire stations’ in London.

This development included extending and converting the historic building into 18 residential apartments, retaining the heritage features of the fire station and building on the existing historic character. Key spaces were preserved and the distinctive white glazed brick and timber paneling repaired. There were minimal alterations to the external building fabric, with dormers and a new extension finished carefully to match the existing Arts and Crafts details.
