Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity
Grade II Listed building

Through the careful introduction of contemporary elements into reinstated historic room hierarchies, planning and listed building consents were secured for this Grade II listed building within Westminster’s Pimlico Conservation Area. Kitchens and bathrooms are designed as pieces of furniture sitting within the historic setting, allowing the elegant and non-invasive integration of modern services. The building has also been extended in response to its locale and the urban typologies of Pimlico.

Trebor Sweet Factory

Project Information

London, E7

Squeezed into the urban fabric of East Ham, the 1937 Trebor Sweet Factory was transformed into a series of refined live / work units. Well received by occupants and developer, the design breathed life into a building of character. A new internal courtyard oversailed by bridges gave the development a social heart, strong circulation patterns, and dual aspect units. The structure was also extended vertically using framed glass boxes following the rhythms of the façade below. Simply finished interiors with sliding walls allow the flexible sub-division of interior space.

Awards and Commendations


Conversion and extension of Grade II Listed former town hall, providing 41 new homes in Bermondsey. Originally the site of the Bermondsey Bath House, the Municipal Office building was purpose-built in 1928-1930 and designed by architect Henry Tansley in emulation of the early 19th Century Greek Revival style.

The scheme creates a range of loft-style apartments throughout the existing building and new second floor penthouses set back from the main façade. The lofts are accessed through the original raised front entrance, which leads visitors to a vertical circulation route via an Imperial-style grand staircase. The nine-window elevation consists of two storeys sitting upon a basement plinth, which is arranged as tripartite with two symmetrical elements flanking a central portico.

The double-height open spaces provide the ideal context for the loft aesthetic, generating a dynamic contrast with the traditional formality of the entrance hall and main staircase areas. The main listed elements of the building include an original coat of arms on the front façade, marble features in the entrance hall and a set of Doric columns supporting the elliptical gallery and the Imperial stair hall. The majority of the facade is constructed in precast concrete blockwork tied back to a brick frame, with additional areas of the building constructed in red- and yellow-stock brick.

To work in the city is to re-use the past. By harnessing social history and collective memory, old and new can be married as part of an evolving environment, capable of regeneration and of sustaining the urban continuum long into the future.

Allowing new uses into old structures can create new spatial opportunities that step beyond form following function, providing open narratives for occupation. Who would have built a turbine hall as a contemporary art gallery for Tate Modern?

Our expertise spans the refurbishment of Grade I listed buildings to the reinvention of industrial buildings and their settings, reviving and unlocking the potential of significant spaces and structures.
