CAN YOU REDEFINE AND REBRAND AN EXISTING WORKSPACE WITHOUT COMPROMISING IT’S BEST ATTRIBUTES?


This project involves the refurbishment of existing affordable workspace, and the provision of 500m2 of extra workspace in a mezzanine extension. Our proposal aims to maximize the potential of the existing building, while creating new spaces and further animating the square within which it lies.

CAN A NEW BUILDING REFLECT THE HISTORY OF ITS NEIGHBOURS?


Behind a listed workhouse wall in Wandsworth lies the west wing of Earlsfield House, an Edwardian mansion block.  [Y/N] Studio are delivering four refurbished apartments in a listed building, and a new townhouse. Using textured brickwork, the townhouse compliments the varied hues of the historical walls, while providing a modern counterpoint.

CAN AN EXTENSION FORM A BACKDROP FOR IT'S HOST?


Our proposal uses the site constraints to generate a pixelated back-drop in charred timber, for the existing red brick form to be celebrated against. The form allows the 8 split-level apartments access to generous terraces, and the ground floor commercial spaces are to be refurbished.

CAN YOU DEFRAGMENT A HOME?


This extension to the four-bedroom home consists of a volume wrapping around the building to increase the kitchen, living, and dining spaces.  The ancillary space in the existing house is currently scattered over the ground floor, fragmenting the circulation space. By coalescing these spaces in the centre of the plan, a more efficient way of moving around the ground floor can emerge.
