On site: Edith Neville Primary School

On site: this week the profiled, perforated cladding is starting to go up at Edith Neville Primary School. The sense of translucency and openness varies as you move round and as sun hits it at different angles. The design of the school’s boundary treatment was the subject of last week’s talk at the NLA entitled ‘Reimagining Somers Town’. Looking forward to the rest of the cladding going up and the trees in the foreground being planted and school life behind animating the street. #edithnevilleprimaryschool #hayhurstandco #schooldesign #londonarchitecture #cladding #architecture

Mansfield Road, Camden

Housing Portfolio: in 2015, we designed a number of new, low-rise homes on an under site in Mansfield Road in Camden. Our design proposed the re-use of garages as meanwhile spaces alongside new accessible housing formed in clusters around communal courtyards. #hayhurstandco #housing #londonhousing

Charrington Street Houses

Housing Portfolio: Forming part of Camden Council’s regeneration scheme of Central Somers Town, we designed three, four-storey, town-houses that ended a Grade-II listed Georgian terrace. Our design included a rigorous analysis of the elevational features and proportions of the adjacent existing terrace in order to inform how a new end of terrace could be interpreted. Planning consent was granted in 2017. #regeneration #housing #londonarchitecture #newhomes #hayhurstandco

Three Sisters

Housing Portfolio: As we embark on a number of new housing projects for Brick by Brick we are showcasing some of our recent multi-unit residential schemes. Pictured today is an image of our estate intensification project for Barrington Court in Gospel Oak. We designed three new homes on awkward, triangular sites at the end of each of the Powell and Moya designed terraces. Planning consent awarded in 2016. #estateintensification #housing #londonarchitecture #newhomes

Archive: Hayes Primary School

From the archive: Must be a nice day to be in the Reception stage play area at Hayes Primary School in Croydon today. Completed in 2012, the project includes a blackboard wall, a sitting niche, sandpit and shallow paddling pool in a space that runs directly from the internal teaching spaces. The project won an RIBA National Award and the NLA Best Education Building Award in 2013. #tbf #schooldesign #hayhurstandco #londonarchitecture #architecture #outdoorlearning

On Site: Edith Neville Primary School

On site: The internal works are progressing at our new-build Edith Neville Primary School in Somers Town, Camden. The linings and glazing are in and the protection being gradually removed. The awesome sense of light and long views over into the trees in the adjacent park are slowly emerging. #edithnevilleprimaryschool #hayhurstandco #camden #camdenschools #londonarchitecture #schooldesign
