Introducing Barrel House

Happy to announce the Barrel House has just been uploaded to our projects page!

This Grade II listed beauty needed a modern update to shift the existing layouts to make room for our clients – Sarah and Morgan’s quickly growing gang of three boys. As well as working with the clients impeccable taste, we had fun with a team of dedicated contractors (Maciej, Michael and Robert at Hirsen) and knowledgeable Heritage Consultant (Mark Matheson). Hope you enjoy!

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!

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!
