• Selfridges on London’s Oxford Street is both a retail institution and cultural landmark, world renowned for its welcoming environment and indulgent customer experience – our conceptual starting point. EL&N occupies part of the fourth floor, and employs a restrained material palette, focusing on a centre-piece grey marble counter that undulates and weaves through the unit to divide the space. From this counter the space is then organised to create a series of more private seating areas furnished with green velvet and leather banquette seating. A bespoke lighting fixture is adorned above a communal high level table, against the backdrop of EL&N’s iconic “flower wall” – now synonymous with the brand, and a popular backdrop for social media promotion. A row of screens run along the edge providing separation from the hustle and bustle of the main Selfridges floor.

  • And here it is, in all its cinnamon flavoured glory! Our entry for the @museumofarchitecture #moagingerbreadcity exhibition at the @vamuseum which opens on Saturday 8th December. Our project draws attention to London’s current homelessness crisis. We have taken the opportunity to showcase the incredible work of our friends @sftslondon. More information on how you can support this fantastic cause via the Shelter from the Storm website, link in our profile. @mayorofldn #design #architecture #london #moagingerbreadcity #museumofarchitecture
  • Hard at work on our #MoAGingerbreadCity entry for the @museumofarchitecture at the @vamuseum opening on the 8th December. Around 7,500 people sleep rough on the streets of London each year. A shortage of affordable housing, cuts to benefit funding and increased migration means that this figure has seen a sharp increase in recent years. Our entry integrates an attractive, contemporary purpose-built shelter for the homeless into a larger mixed-use development - providing beds, warm food and support for those most in need. The programme is supplemented by a community café, local shop and affordable workspace to create an “active frontage”, and underpin the services offered by the shelter. A hopeful vision for the future city. #moagingerbreadcity #london #design #christmas #gingerbreadhouse #architecture
  • A sculptural, timber clad extension on a constrained site has been added to the rear of this 19th Century duplex apartment in an Islington Conservation Area. The upper corner of the extension has been folded back to mitigate any impact on the neighbouring property – a feature driven by planning policy that ultimately shaped the design. The building is clad in timber which has been charred using a Japanese technique known as ‘shou-sugi-ban’, to preserve the wood through carbonisation. The timber itself is a Norwegian product which uses environmentally led technology to provide an alternative to threatened and endangered tropical hardwoods, and traditional impregnated wood. A glazed single storey infill, featuring a large rooflight and green roof, creates a new dining room leading out onto a garden terrace, whilst internally a new open plan kitchen and lounge leads down into a semi-basement layer providing additional utility facilities beneath a new, modern bathroom.
