This gorgeous brick house is heated and cooled by the earth

The Applecross Residence explores the potential of bricks throughout its five levels. Interpreted in different ways, the brickwork include glazed dark bricks along silver ones placed in strategic locations to reflect light and color into the house. A couple of thermal chimneys complete the striking entrance and extending along three levels to provide free of charge geo-thermal heating and cooling to the interiors.

Grade 2 Listed Offices in North West England, UK: Development for Helical – design by OMI Architects

28 Feb 2017

Booth Street Offices in Manchester

Location: 31 Booth Street, Central Manchester, Lancashire

Design: OMI Architects

Manchester office transformation completes

31 Booth Street is a Grade 2 listed office building in the Upper King Street Conservation Area, which forms the traditional commercial centre of Manchester. Originally designed by prolific Victorian practice Clegg and Knowles in 1868 the Venetian Gothic corner block was significantly altered in the 1980s. More recently the building had become vacant and in need of bringing up to modern office standards whilst providing a new identity for the building.

31 Booth Street Office Building Manchester

A simple facelift would not achieve this goal and consequently OMI were commissioned to deliver a series of bold interventions that focused on how people enter and circulate within the building whilst also upgrading the office spaces themselves.

To announce this transformation a previously blocked up historic archway on Booth St was opened up to form the main building entrance. This key intervention offered the opportunity to resolve issues of access and legibility, whilst also realigning the building with Booth St consequently leading to the buildings rebranding.

31 Booth Street Office Building Manchester

Externally on Booth St a high quality bronze entrance doorway and canopy signifies the changes within and leads into a radically reordered Ground Floor layout. On entering the building at street level a series of double height spaces reveal unobstructed views across a striking entrance lobby to the reception. By opening up a section of the first floor views into the office space above are achieved and a large and impressive volume that belies the building relatively modest scale is created.

31 Booth Street Office Building Manchester

The building provides fully refurbished and improved office accommodation through maximising light into the office spaces, achieved by increasing ceiling heights and opening up previously obscured arched window heads. The offices are supported by upgraded facilities including full air conditioning, new WC layouts, shower and cycle storage.

31 Booth Street Office Building Manchester

The building comprises 25,000 sq. ft of commercial office space and 3,500 sq. ft of A3 restaurant / café space.

OMI Architects were lead designer for all the works, collaborating with Spaceinvader on internal finishes within the new lobby.

Estonian Design Contest: Architectural Event – Urban Installation Programme Open Call

Tallinn Architecture Biennale Urban Installation in Tallinn

TAB 2017 Urban Installation in Tallinn by Architect Gilles Retsin

Gilles Retsin will challenge current architectural trends with his proposal for the TAB 2017 Urban Installation in Tallinn

TAB 2017 Urban Installation in Tallinn by Architect Gilles Retsin

28th February 2017 – Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB 2017 is happy to announce Belgian architect Gilles Retsin as the winner of the international TAB Installation Programme open call. The jury selected the winning work from among 16 proposals to build a wooden installation in Tallinn for the biennale in September this year. The winning proposal is characterized by outstanding aesthetic and is intellectually challenging, as it questions current beliefs and trends in architecture, says jury member Martin Tamke (CITA KADK).

Architect Gilles Retsin

The international open two-stage competition challenged participants to develop creative designs for a temporary outdoor installation, making innovative use of the fabrication capacities of the Estonian wooden house manufacturers. The call raised wide international interest, 200 portfolios were submitted for the first round from all over the world. 16 architects/teams were selected for the second round by the jury, with final design proposals submitted by February.

TAB 2017 Urban Installation in Tallinn by Architect Gilles Retsin

Jury member Martin Tamke says it was very satisfying to see that many of the submitted proposals were driven by personal research agendas of the participants: “The TAB competition was a mean to test these in the field. The query for new understandings of tectonics in wood has been an ongoing megatrend, often leaning heavily on digital design and fabrication technologies – an area that is present in academia but has not hit sufficiently the ground of fabricators and constructors. I’m happy that the winning entry is able to synthesize personal inquires with questions of site, material and the underlying topic of TAB 2017.”

TAB 2017 Urban Installation in Tallinn by Architect Gilles Retsin

Winner Gilles Retsin is the founder of Gilles Retsin Architecture, a young award-winning London based architecture and design practice. The practice has developed numerous provocative proposals for international competitions, and is currently working on a range of schemes, among them a 10000 m2 museum in China. Gilles graduated from the Architectural Association in London and prior to founding his own practice worked in Switzerland as a project architect with Christian Kerez. Alongside his practice, Gilles directs a research cluster at UCL/the Bartlett school of Architecture, and he is also a senior lecturer at the University of East-London. He has been invited professor at the Texas A&M University, and has lectured and acted as guest critic in numerous universities internationally. His work has been acquired by the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and he has exhibited internationally in museums such as the Museum of Art and Design in New York, the Vitra Design Museum and the Zaha Hadid Gallery.

TAB 2017 Urban Installation in Tallinn by Architect Gilles Retsin

Second place in the competition was awarded to Tom Svilans and Paul Poinet (Denmark), the third place to FLOW Architecture (UK) and honorable mentions to both APPAREIL (Spain) and LINKSCALE (UK).

TAB Urban Installation Programme curatorial team member, architect Siim Tuksam says Retsin’s proposal stands out because of its outstanding design and the technological innovation it proposes – but also because it takes a strong stand in regards of the future of timber construction, claiming that architectural design and pragmatical consideration could reach a symbiosis instead of a compromise.

The TAB 2017 Urban Installation Jury members included TAB 2017 curator Claudia Pasquero, computational design and materialization specialist Martin Tamke from CITA KADK, and the head of Estonian Museum of Architecture, Triin Ojari who were supported by Curators of the TAB 2017 Installation Programme, architects Sille Pihlak and Siim Tuksam.

TAB 2017 Urban Installation in Tallinn by Architect Gilles Retsin

The folly will be built in August 2017 in front of the Estonian Architecture Museum in Tallinn, on an all-grass, slightly elevated area. The structure will stay there for up to 23 months – until the next Biennale. Participants were asked to use local sustainable material – timber – and winners have a chance to co-produce it with local timber industry and make use of local industrial CNC capabilities.

TAB 2017 Urban Installation in Tallinn by Architect Gilles Retsin

Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB is an international architecture festival which introduces local architecture culture, current issues concerning architecture, and looks at the future of the architectural profession. TAB offers a programme of events for both architecture professionals, students and everyone interested in architecture. Within TAB 2015, an installation titled Body Building, designed by Pihlak and Tuksam was erected in Tallinn, becoming an inspiration to a separate TAB 2017 programme.

TAB 2017 Urban Installation in Tallinn by Architect Gilles Retsin

TAB 2017, titled bioTallinn, looks at the intersection of biology, computation and urban design; we will undertake a non-anthropocentric investigation of the city of Tallinn, conceived as a territory of self-organisation and co-evolution of multiple dynamic systems which are at the same time ecological, infrastructural, technological, social and political in nature. TAB 2017 explores the notion of ‘collective intelligence’ as it has recently emerged in scientific studies of nature, in order to envision a resilient and adaptive interpretation of the city. The curatorial team will invite local as well as international artists and scientists to engage with this notion through original works that will inspire visitors with a vision of the city as “new nature”, conjuring scenarios of urban symbiosis and co-evolution. Biennale’s curatorial team is led by Claudia Pasquero and the event is produced by Estonian Centre of Architecture.

Old Church Street Property Renovation

Will you rise to the challenge? Baker’s House on Old Church Street seeks redevelopment

LONDON, 28th February 2017 – Available for sale through JLL is an impressive four-bedroom home on Old Church Street for £4,750,000. Requiring a full renovation, this characterful 2,013 sq ft terrace is a beautiful example of Georgian architecture. Spread over four floors, including a studio and vault, this prime property offers a plethora of opportunities for its new owner, and comes with planning permission to enlarge the property by approximately 1,000 sq ft.

Old Church Street Property Chelsea

Located at the southern end of Old Church Street, between Chelsea Embankment and the Kings Road, this property comes with full planning permission and is not listed, so it is perfect for a family looking to create their own grand design, or a developer for onward sale. Recently granted planning permission (December 2016), the council has approved plans for the creation of a further basement level to the main house and studio.

Old Church Street Property Chelsea

Giles Cook, Director at JLL, comments: “For those happy to roll up their sleeves, Old Church Street is a brilliant opportunity for someone to create a beautiful family home. Whilst taking on a project can be daunting, it does have its benefits, from creating a tailor-made home to paying less stamp duty, as the purchase price is lower than the value of the finished article. Priced at £4.75m, once works are complete, in line with planning permission and to a high standard, I would expect it to achieve circa £7,000,000. Whilst we are in a slowing market, demand for properties that require modernisation remain, as these are in short supply, thus early viewing is advised.”

Old Church Street Property Chelsea

The new layout, as submitted by the property’s current owner, sees the ground floor transformed into a large entertaining area, with reception and lounge plus garden room. The lower ground floor which is home to two bedrooms, and bathroom, becomes a large kitchen and dining room, with family room to the rear. This floor will also provide access to the newly built basement, where a large gym, shower room and storage area is planned.

Currently there are two reception rooms and a guest bathroom occupying the first floor, but there are plans for this level to become a dedicated luxurious master suite, with a dressing room and en-suite. Finally there are two double bedrooms situated on the top floor, with plans to create a further bathroom.

To the back of the garden is a large studio, and in the approved planning permission this will be extended in to a new basement, where the current owner has proposed a private cinema. Whilst in need of a complete overhaul, there are a number of period features including cast-iron railings, parquet flooring, sash windows and original fireplaces.

Old Church Street Property Chelsea

Old Church Street is one of Chelsea’s most eclectic streets, and has been home to a number of notable residents including, Augustus John, Kate Middleton and Tamara Ecclestone. It is also where the Art’s Club is located, along with Manolo Blahnik’s studio. It is a short walk from the boutiques and restaurants on the Kings Road.

The property is a 20 minute walk from Sloane Square Station (Zone 1, Circle and District line) and a seven minute walk from Cadogan Pier where the Thames Clipper service can be found linking Chelsea to Putney in the west and the City and Canary Wharf in the east. There are also a number of bus services located on the Kings Road.

National Army Museum Building in Chelsea

• £23.75 million new museum unveils exciting new contemporary identity
• New website offers online hub to National Army Museum’s world-renowned collection
• Museum opens on 30 March 2017 with five bright new galleries

Today, 28 February 2017, the National Army Museum rolls out its vibrant new brand and website. Launching in conjunction with the redevelopment of the Chelsea site (supported by HLF), the brand reflects a stronger and more focused identity.

Following an extensive review of the existing National Army Museum brand, the museum set out to transform perceptions of a dark and austere military museum to a modern, bright, engaging and relevant space fit for the 21st century.

Working with creative agencies Small Back Room, Premm Design, and ABG Design, the new National Army Museum brand is reflected in the physical museum, it’s website and has influenced designers across the project in every aspect, from permanent gallery displays and public spaces, to interior design and signage.

‘We are a museum whose story is both historic and of the moment. Not a day goes by without it featuring in the media; this is a unique and special position,’ says Genevieve Adkins, Assistant Director of Public Programmes.

‘The story is controversial, thought-provoking, sad, inspiring and, at times, amusing. Our role is to be more than a museum. We provide a space where audiences can reflect on the role of the army in society and the connection we, as citizens, have with it both historically and today.’

‘We strive to talk about our subject in ways that is at once insightful, sharing, conversational, stimulating and above all real and relevant. We want to inspire conversations, not just questions and answers, and support genuine and meaningful encounters with our story for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The new brand encapsulates this position.’

The design approach to the brand has been driven by colour, materials and textures found within the army. A diverse colour palette of energy and vibrancy reflecting the bright medal ribbons and regimental colours have replaced the traditional reds, dark greens, browns and greys. Metal colours reflect polished medals themselves and convey service and the value of that service. These colours and materials sit at the heart of the new brand and will be visible throughout the new museum building. Normandy green, the corporate colour, gives a modern, fresh and approachable aesthetic, yet is firmly rooted in the army and British traditions.

Chelsea Town House – 5 Jun 2013
Moxon Architects have completed a grade 2 listed house conversion in Chelsea. The driver for this scheme has been to treat the existing structure as a geometric guide for the setting out of new material and spatial interventions. The space has been radically reconfigured throughout, to provide a fewer number of larger and better rooms, with additions to the top and bottom of the house increasing its volume by over a quarter.
