Dirty House

Adjaye Associates

David was in my final year for the BA, and it was clear that he was always going to be a star - absolutely charming guy as well.

So the “Dirty House” doesn’t give much away, but what it does show is tantalizing indeed. The way the roof floats like someone opening pandoras box, and the green reflected in the soffit, hints at a rich verdant life inside.

Henry Reader Williams Memorial Clock Tower
Crouch End, London

A good friend of ours is leaving to work abroad for a few years and we decided to make an image of her “beloved Crouch End” - that’ll be the clock tower then.

Not the most original of views, and to be honest, not the prettiest of memorials, but I hope she likes it. I froze till my fingers hurt and she’ll be looking at it in central Africa but it somehow captures a buzz thats easy to like.

Haggerston
East London Line Station

Acanthus LW

Third in a series of images on the new East London Line Stations.

I very much enjoyed creating these images, and found the project to be both easily understood and accessed as a commuter. I also like the clarity and simplicity of the massing of the building - as a child I commuted daily from East Finchley station - which seems sympathetic to both the street and park scales.

Kings Place
Music & Visual Arts Centre + Offices

Dixon Jones

Kings Cross is finally getting the attention it’s location deserves. Opened in 2008 this is unbelievably the first public concert hall in London since the Barbican.

Can’t help but enjoy how it ripples along the road, but from the canal it’s far more robust. Internally it’s generous in the extreme, creating huge spaces to move through - perhaps too quietly? Great place for a drink on a warm sunny evening too.

Thames Barrier & Docklands
Woolwich, London

Rendel, Palmer and Tritton

After a gorgeously clear day, I took the trek down to the Thames Barrier, only to watch the clouds cover over the sky I was hoping would remain pristine. Will I ever learn to be patient? It will take me a while to slow down - Im thinking of getting some large format equipment in an effort give up haste. Next week: Buddhism (or not)
