Astley Castle – 14 Jun 2013
This is a fortified manor built in the 12th century and progressively extended over the succeeding seven centuries. After a fire burnt out the roof and floors in 1978, its walls decayed and collapsed while a series of rescue attempts failed. In 2006 the Landmark Trust tried a final gambit: the creation of a contemporary house within the footprint of the castle remains, procured by architectural competition.

Warwickshire Architecture Competition Shortlist
Warwickshire Architecture Competition – 12 Dec 2012
The Shortlist is announced for the competition to design a non-denominational reception building that will provide commemorative services for a green burial site to be created at Alne Wood Park, near Alcester. RIBA Competitions is managing the selection process on behalf of Warwickshire landowner Felix Dennis – who is working in partnership with registered charity The Heart of England Forest Ltd. – to plant and preserve a large native broadleaf forest in the heart of England. The green burial site seeks to complement this overarching vision via an appropriate development which will provide a reliable source of income, increase rural employment, bio-diversity and public engagement with the landscape.

University of Warwick Campus – 13 Apr 2012
This new build primarily serves the departments of Physics and Chemistry on the campus of University of Warwick. With interaction between science disciplines at the heart of the brief, the proposals consist of four floors of laboratory and office space, below which sits a double height laboratory space for high spec research instrumentation. A plaza links at ground level to the existing principal campus thoroughfare at the upper levels with a new main entrance, reception and light, attractive concourse space which will act as the social hub of the research building.
