We are looking for a tenant to join us at the studio and take on the right hand side of our building. The space is a flexible 1900sqft with car parking. The building has been recently refurbished and has excellent access to the M27 and mainline rail services. We have moved here recently and are loving being in Totton. It is a well kept secret with easy access to a waterfront pub, tennis courts and shops. Come and join the fun.

We are delighted to announce that Parkwod Place, one of our recent housing developments in Winchester, has been shortlisted for the Solent Design Awards. We would be very grateful if you could show your support by voting for it at The Peoples Choice.

Located on a prominent corner site in Winchester, the scheme provides five generous townhouses and six apartments, including a split level penthouse.

The site is highly constrained by mature trees and every home is designed to benefit from a positive relationship with this landscape setting. Crisp detailing, use of VM zinc and a locally distinctive brick results in a contextual design that is one of the most contemporary housing schemes in Winchester.

Making concrete beautiful with Reckli

Our design director, Paul Bulkeley, is just back from the Reckli factory in Herne, Germany where he was composing the artwork for the end panels to our 119 beach huts in Milford-on-sea. Here is a taste of what is soon to be caste in concrete.

Recoil end panels

The design takes 119 objects found washed up on the beach and arranges them into a spiral taking the golden section geometry of a shell. By arranging the objects in height order and spiralling gently outwards from small to large, the shell form emerges.

The artwork will now be turned into a reusable elastic formliner by Reckli. This will then be transported to the concrete fabricators for production and shipment to site in Milford-on-sea. The end panels will sit adjacent to each of the steps, providing a tactile and beautiful composition created from and informed by nature.
