Towards the end of last year we participated in two open competitions; the one for a small pavilion set in the Museum Gardens of the Childhood Museum in London; the other a high profile competition for a Guggenheim in Helsinki. The latter had almost 2000 entrants, the highest number of entrants thats ever been received for a competition of this nature. We believed we had a good scheme, but the odds were partly against us, as well as some other really good schemes of course. The 6 finalists chosen can be viewed on      
Winners to be announced June 2015.

Room with a view

It is always heartwarming to see how something simple can inspire. This month saw the final completion, and awarding of Building Certificate, of the Bellsize Park refurbishment and rooftop terrace ‘insert’ which we designed for little Levin’s parents. One of the first things he did was draw a picture of his new view. Brüno, no not Sacha Baron Cohen’s alter ego, but Levin’s dog, seems quite content too.

Cocktails & Compliments

The completion and 'opening' of the Hampstead Apartment refurbishment was recently celebrated with a cocktail party accompanied by kind compliments all around. We were very fortunate to have been involved with this project and very proud of the end result. Needless o say, our Clients are quite happy too. The builder Rafal, and his DreamTeam, did a sterling job.
