Purcell Miller Tritton conservation project : Watts Gallery
Watts Gallery is unique in being the only purpose-built art gallery to show a collection of a single professional artist. It is an early example of an Arts & Crafts building and one of the first to be built in solid concrete. It is listed Grade II* and was built as both a Gallery and a hostel for apprentice potters working at the pottery founded by the artist’s second wife Mary Seton Watts. Also part of the estate is the nearby cemetery chapel, an extraordinary, art nouveau, Grade I listed building designed by Mary Seton Watts.

Christ Church Spitalfields : London church restoration
Christ Church was built as part of the church building programme initiated by the Fifty New Churches act of 1711, backed by Queen Anne, which was implemented by four different Commissions.

The Commission appointed to build the 50 new churches stipulated that the new buildings should have tall spires so that they would tower above the smaller, non-conformist chapels.

Nicholas Hawksmoor architect had worked with Sir Christopher Wren since his late teens. Of the 12 churches completed six were the work of Hawksmoor, and this building was his masterpiece.

The church has seen at least two large-scale alterations, the first in 1866 (directed by the architect Ewen Christian) which changed the entire look of the interior, and the second which began in the 1960s and was only recently completed – a restoration of the church to its original state, which it was initially estimated would cost £1 million and in fact cost £10 million. Since reopening in 2004, the church has been visited by more than 100,000 people.
