Woodland Studio in the press

Our new studio at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is featured on the Architect’s Journal website. Photos by Simon Kennedy.

“Realised with an acute understanding of the natural environment and the importance of our location in the heart of Regent’s Park, one might be forgiven for assuming that these new buildings have always been a feature of the theatre’s infrastructure.”

Strike a pose

Thanks to Michele Ardu for our new portraits. We love them. Our new rehearsal studio for the Open Air Theatre made a great backdrop.

New project on site

Now on site is this café pavilion, our third project at the Victoria & Albert Museum. We’ve been working with AJ Wells to develop bespoke cladding panels that will sit beautifully within its Grade I listed courtyard. The new café opens at the end of May.

Enamel Testing

We spent a day at AJ Wells’s factory on the Isle of White, testing finishes for our new café at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Work starts on site in mid-May.

Easter basket

It might be rainy, but our extension on this house in Hampton is looking good as it nears completion. The brick parapet detail mirrors that in the existing building.

We’ve completed the first stage of design work for Dorchester Area Community Land Trust. Our design will provide affordable homes for young people in the area.

Seething Festival

Jim’s MArch students from Kingston University unveil their ‘yatai’ at the Surbiton Seething Festival.  The moveable piece of architecture, built by the students, hosted ‘Lefi Ganderson – the Goat Boy of Mount Seething’ and launched the annual procession through the streets. The structure will be taken to Dorich House before returning to the festival again next year.

Team update

We’d like to welcome Max Crichton and Andrew Humphrey to the Reed Watts team. He we are inside our prototype of the Commonweal bedroom pod.

Volunteer day

We spent a busy day yesterday building our Commonweal bedroom prototypes for a winter shelter in Hillingdon. The shelter, run by Housing Justice, provides overnight accommodation for homeless people. The bedroom pods give guest privacy, more autonomy and better prospects in making a successful transition off the streets. The design for the pods is going to be made available under a Creative Commons license so that it can be used by charities wishing to provide shelter for the homeless or for disaster / emergency relief.

Dorchester Area Community Land Trust

We’re excited to have been appointed by Dorchester Area Community Land Trust to develop proposals for 20 new homes in the centre of Dorchester.  The new homes will be designed for young people who are being squeezed out of the local housing market. We’re looking forward to working with the community over the coming months.

Kings Road

Our project to refurbish this small terraced house in Kingston is nearly complete. We have installed a mezzanine in the new extension to maximise floor space.

Affordable housing competition

Initial designs for low cost, sustainable housing on a tree lined site in the South west.

Acacia Road

Our second project in Hampton has been submitted for planning.

In praise of shadows

London Library

A sketch of the Victorian stacks at the London Library – farewell to the Librarian, Inez Lynn.

V&A reception

Our second project for the V&A museum is complete. The new Member’s Reception features a ‘living’ chandelier by Julian Melchiorri.

Commonweal Housing Competition

First view of our winning proposal for an Ideas Competition for Commonweal Housing. The brief calls for new models for temporary housing for vulnerable, migrant workers who would otherwise be homeless. Our solution proposes the use of salvaged construction materials to create individual bedroom pods. More details here.

Rain Forest Green

One of the amazing pieces of marble used in our project at the V&A Museum. The new tunnel entrance opens to the public on Thursday, 29th June.

Work complete

We recently completed work on this property on New Bond Street.  Our refurbishment of the entrance has introduced a wall of bespoke marble tiles.

Kingston University End of Year Show

Work by Jim’s students from Unit 5 of the MArch course at Kingston University is on display at the Knights Park Campus, Grange Road. The exhibition runs until 21st June.
