The recently approved plans for Barking Riverside will create more than 10,000 homes on 179 hectares of undeveloped land to the east of London. The project takes influence from the best urban spaces and examples of urban regeneration from around the world, including Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm, as well as the unique natural conditions and ecology of this stretch of The Thames.

The JW3 is an award-winning community centre to serve the Jewish population in London. The scheme includes a café, auditorium and screening room, classrooms and exercise rooms as well as a nursery and offices for the organization itself. All these facilities are accommodated in a flexible three storey pavilion set away from the busy Finchley Road that runs along the east of the site to create an intimate, sheltered outdoor space that allows the building and its occupants literally to breathe.
Open House London is was launched in 1992 as a small, not-for-profit organisation to promote public awareness and appreciation of the capital’s building design and architecture. The intention was to open up London’s buildings to the general public who wouldn’t otherwise have access, and, as a result, help the wider community to become more knowledgeable, engage in dialogue and make informed judgements on architecture.
