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.

Timber Frame Basement

by Paul.

Currently on the drawing board – sketch design for a basement extension in Fulham, exploring options for the lightwell and facade. This project will also incorporate a loft extension and alterations to the existing spaces across three floors.

Sketch rear facade with timber frame and structural glazing (L).

Sketch basement interior view to external courtyard & lightwell (R).


 

Sketch interior perspectives of the ground floor library, with crittall style screens to create lightweight partitions between the spaces.


Timber frame layout options for the rear facade, incorporating structural and solar shading elements.


Material studies for the basement and ground floor exploring texture, colour and zoning.
