Working from home: This is the beginning of our third week of #WFH and our new work environments are just beginning to feel lived-in. This is Nick’s desk at his south London home where a number of plants from the studio are keeping him company.
Nick’s home is an Edwardian wreck that he and his family moved into last year leaving behind their pristine modernist house that won an RIBA Award when it was built back in 1970. Work has started on the Edwardian retrofit: you can see the edges of the recycled wood-fibre internal insulation and unpainted lime plaster around the windows frames.
Nick is currently focussing on finalising the planning application for a block of 20 affordable homes in south London, starting the design for a refurbishment of a Grade-II listed home and studio for a photographer in Hampstead and writing up his research entitled ‘Class Action: a space for learning’ for #ref2021. Like many practice Directors, the last few weeks have been more teams, spreadsheets and pain than pen, paper and joy. Hopefully this week will be different..!
