We were delighted to be asked to contribute to the Archifringe 'Frankentypes' exhibition in Edinburgh earlier this month. The exhibition featured drawings and models from a group of emerging practices based on hybrid typologies. Our project, The Villa Savoy, is an ark, based on Aalto’s classic Savoy glassware range and contains a mixed-tenure of housing and civic functions. We're looking forward to seeing where our model ends up next...

We have been appointed to bring a live-work studio back to life in West London. Once the home of Arnold Machin, renowned for his relief portrait of the Queen that adorns our stamps, there is rich history to absorb and we hope some will find its way into the completed project.

We have collaborated with Cantifix and Arrant Land on a kennel for the Blue Cross as part of the Bow Wow Haus charity initiative. Over 70 international architects and designers were invited to take part with the kennels  on show in London's St. Pancras International Station from the 19th March. A gala auction will take place in April with all proceeds going to the Blue Cross.

Our design is to ensure you never have to hunt for a ball for your dog to chase when you take them for a walk.

You can see more on our kennel and the other designs on the Bow Wow Haus website.
