Playful incidents...

We posted our Expression of Interest for the Kedleston Hall 'Playful Incident' competition last week. We're waiting to hear if we have made the shortlist of 3, but our hopes are fading as time goes on. Still, we had great fun making this model to show our initial concept for the project with two towers projecting from the woodland canopy on axis with the Hall and facing each other across the valley.

We've also been busy working on a planning application for a site in Matlock Green. The scheme is for a new apartment block to sit in the grounds of a former pub that is already being converted into flats. On the other side of the site are a pair of semi-detached Art-Deco style houses, so our proposal had to balance between the historic pub and white rendered Art-Deco style houses.

Finally, progress from Nethergate  - with the windows almost complete and scaffolding removed from the roof of the new Assembly Hall, the new school entrance is starting to take shape.
