Hanna and Richard recently took part in New London Architecture’s Don’t Move, Improve! 2016 Open Day at the Building Centre in Store Street, offering free one to one consultations with people looking for advice regarding extending their homes.
Margaret & Jamie’s house is featured in the Don’t Move, Improve! 2016 exhibition of the most innovative home extensions in the capital at New London Architecture’s (NLA) at the Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London, WC1E 7BT.

We have teamed up with brand consultants, lukecharles, and are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted by the London Borough of Islington town centre development team for a programme of improvements to shopfronts in Finsbury Park to support the regeneration of the local area. Our proposal includes a phased master project programme for alterations ranging from re-decorating to completely re-designing up to 25 shop and café fronts in Blackstock Road, Fonthill Road, Seven Sisters Road, Station Place, Stroud Green Road and Wells Terrace.
We are delighted to announce that Margaret & Jamie’s home has been long-listed for the Don’t Move, Improve! 2016 awards. The awards are run by New London Architecture (NLA) with the support of Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) London and British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) to find the most innovative home extensions in the capital.
Our proposed scheme for alterations to a house in the Grade II Listed Branch Hill Estate in the Redington & Frognal Conservation Area in Hampstead has been granted Listed Builded Consent. The estate is a development of 42 split level, semi-detached, 4 & 6 person, modernist houses, on a steeply sloping site, designed by architects, Gordon Benson and Alan Forsyth, then of the London Borough of Camden Architect’s department in the early 1970s for the council for their tenants, and was finally completed in 1978, which was by then a completely different social, political, economic, and cultural climate. The house has been significantly altered by previous owners, as original walls have been extended and others removed, along with the majority of the original fittings. The proposed scheme is intended to remove the incongruous existing later alterations, and to refurbish and re-fit the house in the spirit of the original scheme.
Journalist, Donna Ferguson, interviewed Richard, for an article on clever ways to add value to your property in the Bricks & Mortar section of The Times.
