7pm this evening. Nick will be talking with Deborah Daunt @dsdha_architecture @joevelomo from @moco_arch and Seth Scafe-Smith and Akil Scafe-Smith from @resolvecollective as part of the @architecturefoundation #100daystudio See the AF website for the zoom link. ‘Architecture isn’t about bricks and mortar; it’s about people’. We will be talking about the people-centred and landscape-centred work we are doing at Central Somers Town for Camden Council and on the Tustin Estate for Southwark Council.

@hayhurstandco

7pm – 8pm: Architecture isn’t about bricks and mortar; it’s about people – Collaborative City Making via Zoom

As part of the Architecture Foundation’s 100 day studio, Nick will be in conversation with their Deborah Saunt (DSDHA), Joe Morris (Morris + Company), Seth Scafe-Smith and Akil Scafe-Smith (RESOLVE Collective) on the nature of people-centred and landscape-led approach to urban frameworks. A process that allows for an iterative and interactive design process where quality of place is brought to the fore.

Two case study projects will provide the focus of the event: Central Somers Town for LB Camden where Hayhurst and Co. worked with DSDHA, Adam Khan Architects, Morris + Company and dRMM; and the Tustin Estate for LB Southwark in collaboration with DSDHA, RESOLVE Collective and Kennedy Woods.

Emerging from lockdown: As the construction sites start up again, we are looking forward to another new-start on site in July this year: our remodelling and extension of a 1980s bungalow in Cromer, north Norfolk.

Set on a sloping site close to the top of the ridge over-looking the town, the existing H-plan, pattern-book home was built on the only flat part of the site where there used to be a tennis court. The building was not designed to maximise the qualities of the site and fails to capture the views of the sea to the north or the woods to the south. Our design flips the living and sleeping accommodation and comprises a series of contemporary, site-specific domestic interventions. The extension takes the form of a cranked plan around an over-sized flint, chimney. In the landscape, tiered, flint planting beds help retain the land whilst extending the language of the new extension up and down the slope to form dedicated garden areas for external amenity.

Emerging from lockdown: As the construction industry begins to get back on its feet, we are looking forward to seeing a number of new projects start on site in the coming months. Green House – a new 5-bedroomed family home in Haringey for a photographer and a teacher – is almost there. Located in a conservation area, the design draws on the green, heavily-wooded backland character of the site and re-interprets the traditional greenhouse as a model of domestic space.
The new home is constructed from cross-laminated timber (CLT) and incorporates planting within a deep polycarbonate elevation to the front of the house. In the centre of the home is a two-storey, glazed atrium that contains the dining space around which curtains can be either fully drawn or – quite theatrically – partially drawn to provide different levels of privacy, openers and acoustic absorbance between different domestic activities. At the first floor the atrium provides a gallery on all four sides from which to access the bedrooms, bathroom and utility space. All the bedrooms look out on to the mature trees that surround the site.

Entrances and Threshold: Image showing close-up 3-dimensional composition of the entrance to our 20-home scheme for @brickbybrickldn . The semi-circular balconies compliment the arched entrances and are staggered in plan on the east-facing elevation to allow a better coverage of south-facing aspect and sunlight to the balconies at the lower level. #councilhomes #affordablehomes #conviviality #hayhurstandco #newhomes #brickbybrick #londonarchitecture #archedwindows #curvedbalcony #socialhousing #brickbybrick #brickbuilding #brick

Entrances and Thresholds: Extracts of elevations showing the two approaches to our 20-home scheme for @brickbybrickldn . The arched windows to the stairwell are a nod to some of London’s pioneering turn-of-the century social housing that saw generous well-lit, airy and convivial shared circulation spaces. The brick arch to the entrance canopy at ground floor denotes the point of entry and visually balances the blocks north-facing flank wall. #councilhomes #affordablehomes #conviviality #hayhurstandco #newhomes #brickbybrick #londonarchitecture #archedwindows #curvedbalcony #socialhousing #brickbybrick #brickbuildings #brick

In planning: Our proposal for 20 affordable homes on a garage site in Thornton Heath for @brickbybrickldn has been submitted for planning. The new 4-storey building at Atlanta Court will form the third side and an active front to an existing shared space. Drawing reference from the English tradition of early, turn-of-the-century social housing, the entrance and circulation areas are embellished with large, elongated arched openings of the common stair to the new block. The semi-circular motif is continued through to the projecting curved balconies to the upper-floor homes that are staggered in plan to reduce the impact of shadow from upper balconies. #councilhomes #affordablehomes #conviviality #hayhurstandco #newhomes #brickbybrick #londonarchitecture #archedwindows #curvedbalcony

A breath of fresh air for the weekend: Grain House is a remodelled and extended Victorian home in the de Beauvoir Conservation Area in Hackney, north London. Completed last year, the house connects original and new living spaces via a 2-storey sunken courtyard that creates a visual link from the entrance, through to new family spaces and on to the garden. The project will be published on our website next week! Photo: @kilianosullivan #hayhurstandco #grainhouse #hackney #houseextension #londonarchitecture #displayart

New commission: a room with a view. We have just been appointed by a photographer to refurbish a 3-storey, Grade II listed house in Hampstead for her and her family. Located close to the Heath, the property includes an outbuilding at the rear of the garden that will be redeveloped to form a new studio. #newcommission #houseextension #hayhurstandco

@hayhurstandco

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..!

Work in progress: We are currently developing detailed designs for a new family home in Haringey, London that draws on the green, heavily-wooded backland character of the site. The new home incorporates a double height living space and a planted front elevation – a contemporary re-interpretation of the Victorian greenhouses that once filled the neighbouring plot. The home will be constructed using sustainable and recyclable materials and includes renewable energy sources.

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
