Don’t Move, Improve 2019! Design Surgeries

Ewald and Jessica were on hand last Saturday at The Building Centre for free design surgery to advise and inspire Londoners looking to improve and not move! Run by New London Architecture.

These free consultations are a great chance for a chat with experienced refurbishment architects, set amongst the exhibition of the shortlisted DMI dwellings for 2019- delighted to be in the great company of some lovely firms like Archmongers and Con Form Architects.

Don’t Move, Improve! 2019 Awards Night

Last night, we were delighted to attend the very busy Don’t Move, Improve! 2019 Awards where our project Woodworker’s Studio was lucky enough to be shortlisted.

While we weren’t fortunate enough to pick up any of the awards it was wonderful to see our project in amongst such amazing competition. The very deserving winner of the main award was a beautifully repurposed Chapel by Craftworks featuring an amazing origami-like ceiling.

You can see the list of winners here or the full shortlist here.

The Don’t Move, Improve! 2019 exhibition is on display at The Building Centre on Store Street until end March.
