The land of fire
We have recently won two projects in the historic and rapidly developing city of Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.
One is to be a new bookshop and cultural centre in the university quarter of the city. The shop will focus on increasing the exposure of literature to the city and will include an exhibition space, multiple events spaces and a dedicated children's area.
The second project is a new restaurant within the ancient walls of the old city. The site is flanked by two recent archaeological explorations which have uncovered ancient stone foundations, giving us a unique task of weaving new structure into the historic elements.
We were invited to visit the city at the end of last year and enjoyed a whirlwind tour of the various historic landmarks and bold new developments such as Zaha Hadid's Heydar Aliyev centre.
Birchin Lane Progress
Our office refurbishment project on Birchin Lane in the City of London is well and truly underway. The scope includes a total refurbishment to the reception, the reconfiguration of three basement rooms into separate male and female changing/shower facilities, new bike storage and four floors of Cat A fit-out to the offices.
We are now over half way into the works and the first of the office floors are nearing completion, with only decoration and lighting installation remaining. The basement and reception are now completely stripped back, revealing some interesting original features.

We had the wonderful opportunity of descending into the dusty remains of the Aldwych tube station last weekend as part of London Transport Museum's Hidden London. Although the station is lost from public view, TfL still make use of the station for testing new station designs and tiling patterns. It has also been the setting for filming many television series and feature films including Sherlock, Mr Selfridge, V for Vendetta and Atonement.

Paul Smith pays us a compliment
Fashion designer Paul Smith posted a photo on his personal Instagram account of our recently completed reception at 2-4 Kings Street, St James. This is a great compliment from the person who inspired the original concept for the graphic.
The whole reception refurbishment was based on the history of the area, which was birthplace to private member's clubs during the 18th century. This led us to develop an overall design focusing on ornate fabrics used in the linings of tailored suits which would have been worn by the patrons of these establishments, particularly with the paisley pattern.
The paisley pattern is echoed in a textured plaster wall finish by Armourcoat, and an etched stainless steel panel lining in the lift.

Bronze cladding installation
The installation of a bespoke bronze cladding has now commenced on our Mayfair site, opposite Green Park.
Over the past 18 months we have worked closely with FSE Foundry to develop a method of producing cast bronze panels. Inspired by the textured bark of the Plane trees in Green Park, we adopted a method of using an open cast which creates an organic pattern, rather than the usual two-part mould process. Each panel is crafted into a unique panel.
The bronze panels are enhanced and protected by a chemical patination process, creating a variety of autumnal tones, which clad the ground and mezzanine floor columns in a brick bond pattern. Horizontal sections are clad in a folded gilding metal which is patinated to match the open cast bronze.
A hanging system was developed in collaboration with Firman Glass, who also installed the 90mm thick, soundproof and solar controlled glazing.
Our third shop for Foyles has just opened in Birmingham's new Grand Central shopping centre. The heritage and “real" book focused shops we designed in Stratford and Waterloo have been developed to express Foyles as an omni channel, holistic brand; a 21st century book seller.
Harnessing technology, large format monitors and a video wall utilise digital in-store marketing and hyper sound speakers direct audio, for interviews with writers and book readings. Foyles have also introduced mobile point of sale and a provision for customers to search and order books in store to be either delivered or collected the next day.

The two entrances (front and rear) reflect the two very different building styles and uses - the front being the Listed Victorian entrance to the main Art galleries, whilst the rear entrance leads off the new sculpture gardens into the COCA galleries.

Eggborough Power Station in North Yorkshire produces four per cent of the UK’s electricity and employs 300 staff.
In 2013, as part of a bid to the Department of Energy and Climate Change to receive public funding to convert to burn biomass fuels, we prepared a feasibility study, in collaboration with branding company db&co, to create a new Identity to reflect this potential new clean energy culture of Eggborough Power Station.
Our proposals explore ways to change the perception of power stations and the role they play in society and to create an environment that is inspiring, safe and secure for it’s staff and informative and welcoming to it’s visitors.
This included a new visitor experience facility to show new developments, achievements and be a ‘shop-window’ to how EPL carries out its daily business and develops a strategy how to it present itself to visitors - business partners, local officials, the press, school groups, etc.
Our scheme uses sustainable and responsibly sourced materials, with a low Carbon impact and develops the natural landscaping designed by Brenda Colvin in 1962. This was highly regarded as a unique and imaginative solution in dealing with industrial waste, using the waste ash from the power station to form gently spiralling land-forms.
Indigenous plants and trees, such as silver birch, which is a haven for over 100 insect species and grasses and meadow flowers that produce massive numbers of seeds attracting many species of birds.
