Thanks to the lovely people at Living North Magazine for featuring our listed farm conversion in Yorkshire in their October 2018 issue, as part of their ‘DIY home builders’ article. You can view the full magazine online here (we’re on page 39). All the beautiful photos are by Lucy Saggers.

Combining Design & Fabrication: Technical Lecture Series

by Paul.

On 17.10.18, David Knight of Cake Industries will be speaking about ‘the transformative process of integrating design, structural engineering and fabrication via digital workflows’ as part of the technical lecture series at The Institute of Structural Engineers. David is a chartered structural engineer who has worked on some amazing projects around the world, and also a few closer to home which you might recognise from our own portfolio! The lecture will use current examples of designs under construction, and we’ll be keeping an eye out for a guest appearance from a certain staircase…

The event is free to attend, or you can watch the live stream free online – it promises to be an interesting evening. For more info and to book a place, head over to the Institute of Structural Engineers website here.


Check out some projects we’ve collaborated on with Cake here and here.


With thanks to Nash Partnership for the fab photo.

Gingerbread City

In the run up to Christmas this year, we donned our most festive baking hats to compete in this year’s Gingerbread City, put on by The Museum of Architecture.

16,000 people went to see and smell the delights at the exhibition, where over 60 architects submitted their gingerbread creations. No Hansel or Gretel in sight, our gingerbread building was a mixed use development complete with external gelatin pool, polo rubber rings and sugar glass chapel. The candy crane moving the last pieces into place was a firm favourite and got a mention in the Telegraph.

All 16,000 visitors cast their vote and we were delighted to have achieved a top five finish out of 60 firms that entered:

1st- NBBJ

2nd- Piercy & Company

3rd- Cottrell & Vermeulen

4th- Foster and Partners

5th- Thomas & Spiers
