New Housing in Welwyn
The design solution responded to the site’s very particular context of the A1(M) motorway on one side and dense woodland on the other. The concept, a modern take on a walled village, was informed by the unique combination of urban and rural surroundings and sought to reduce noise and pollution from the motorway.

New Festival Quarter
NEW FESTIVAL QUARTER
This project comprises the demolition of the former Blessed John Roche School and the construction of 502 new homes. The development is arranged in four blocks ranging from three to 16 storeys and features a mix of tenures, from studios to five bedroom homes.
All homes have private outdoor space and further communal terraces offer views of the City skyline. Extensive non-residential facilities include a fitness centre and nursery as well as a community hall and various areas of public realm; creating a new neighbourhood which will in turn have a positive impact on the locality.
Located within a Conservation Area, the new buildings reconcile the need to deliver much needed new housing whilst respecting the character of the local context, which is characterised by small scale, low-density residential estates. The massing of the various blocks has been carefully considered, with building heights lowered in areas of sensitivity and taller elements strategically placed so as not to affect the neighbouring housing.

This new housing and regeneration scheme in east London overlooks Victoria Park and is adjacent to the Hertford Union Canal.
Situated in a prime location with contrasting characteristics, it integrates into the surroundings with a strong frontage to the busy Old Ford Road and ‘softer’ edge to the Victoria Park elevation. A peaceful internal courtyard opens up onto the canal, bringing views of the park into the heart of the development.
Gunmakers Wharf is located within the Victoria Park Conservation Area, which is characterised predominantly by low-rise residential developments and locally listed warehouse buildings. The scheme’s design takes its cue from the latter, offering a contemporary take on warehouse architecture with five distinct blocks featuring simple lines and a limited palette of materials. Brick is the dominant material, complemented by timber shingles and a glazed panel system to create a modern finish.

Avant-garde has regenerated a key site in the heart of Shoreditch, providing 360 private and affordable homes across three blocks, together with roof terraces, sky and winter gardens, bars, restaurants, a gym and extensive public realm improvements.
The high quality finishes of this new development take inspiration from its location – both at the edge of the City and at the heart of fashionable and artistic Shoreditch. The design effortlessly juxtaposes the sleek anodised aluminium and glass finishes of the 25 storey City facing tower with the lower level brickwork buildings on Bethnal Green Road.
The scheme includes a variety of home types, from one bedroom apartments to penthouses and large family duplex units. All homes have private amenity space, many of which offer residents stunning views across the capital.
In addition, the development features a ground level square and series of courtyards that extend the buzz of Brick Lane through to Boxpark, ensuring Avant-garde becomes a major hub of activity within this area.
