London Festival of Architecture – BVDS Open Studio

We are happy to host our first Open Studio as part of London Festival of Architecture, in our recently extended penthouse studio overlooking London fields. This is an opportunity to pop by for a free informal design consultation with one of our architects and a chance to have a look around our office and meeting the team.

Consultants we work with will also be on hand for advice. Brian from Constant Structural Design will be able to advise on all things structural, whilst Measur Cost consultants will be able to provide you with invaluable budget advice.

Our doors are open on Saturday the 10th of June from 10am to 4pm, a great opportunity to talk to the team, drink a local beer on the roof terrace and enjoy the views of London Fields, hopefully in the sunshine!

For further details about the event please refer to our Facebook event.

Nordoff Robbins Launch Party

It was great to attend the opening party of our recently completed project for Nordoff Robbins; a refurbishment of the largest purpose-built music therapy centre in the world.

It has been so rewarding to work with Nordoff Robbins who do such amazing work through music therapy. It was incredible to see everyone enjoying the transformation that we have been working on for the past year and a half. It was especially exciting to hear some of the music therapists performing in the exemplary music therapy rooms we designed, the acoustics were superb!
