A two storey side extension, to this Bishop's Stortford property, has created a self contained 'Granny Annexe' for Mum so that she, first and foremost, has her own space, but is also near to the family. #hertfordshirearchitecture #essexarchitecture #londonstudio #londonstockbrick #grannyannexe #homeextensionshertfordshire #homeextension #homeextensionsessex 📷 MARLIN Design

Derelict homes provide an exciting opportunity to create something special. In this project we are looking to develop the site to provide upto 4 new dwellings. #londonstudio #londonarchitecture #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #derelicthomes #newhome #newhouse #
Frederick Gibberd’s 1858-68 Fullwell Cross development in Barkingside NE London. The striking library is featured over at @barbican_city_of_london here is a glimpse of the building housing the swimming pool. The intended original design had a magnificent Olympic sized swimming pool with restaurant above, however as local planning got more and more bogged down (I’m sure there’s a pun somewhere there) costs spiked and the pool got smaller. Also a new Olympic pool was being built at Crystal Palace. Gibberd played a huge role in the development of post war Britain and is credited with building a very early apartment block in the modernist International Style in London in 1933.
In 1958 Ilford Council, guided by the Ministry of Housing instructed Frederick Gibberd (a major figure in post war reconstruction and the design of the Festival of Britain) to build on an empty piece of land in Fullwell Cross at the end of what is now Barkingside High Street. The original idea was to create an olympic size indoor pool and a library, in effect reconfiguring the end of the High Street. Over the next decade he created the beautiful Fullwell Cross library. The shell shaped roof sitting on a steel frame is finished in green copper which simply glows as your drive past. The library is positioned to face towards the swimming baths (image over at @greyscapeworld. ) The library was refurbished in 1990. The development was completed in association H C Connell the London Borough of Redbridge Architect.
Currently awaiting the decision on the Planning application for this little beauty, for our client. Cannot wait to bring this to reality. #londonstudio #londonarchitecture #essexarchitecture #houserenovation #homeextensionshertfordshire #homeextensionsessex #homeextension #essexcounty #zincroof #storender #sto #moderndesign #modernarchitecture
So, you're through Christmas, and looking back at just how many people you had crammed into your home, all squeezed around your dining table, for the big day. You're sat there thinking we really have to do something about this serious lack of space. Shall we move dear? Well you could do. But look at the overall cost of getting to the ideal home for you. On average it will be a spend of around £250k. So why not look at the potential for what you've got instead. Space allowing, you could have a really nice extension for alot less outlay, and all ready for next Christmas. 📷: MARLIN Design Doors: Sunseeker Doors Ltd #londonstudio #londonarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #essexarchitecture #homeextensionsessex #homeextensionshertfordshire #homeextensionslondon #londonarchitecture #bifoldingdoors
As we progress into a new year with exciting opportunity and an ever challenging world, with the unknown very much in everyone's thoughts, here is a little taster of some of our work over the past year, whilst raising a glass to the future success and continued expansion of MARLIN Design. 📷 by MARLIN Design Clients: various Award: #harlowcivicsociety https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=820858654745268&id=182231268608013 #londonarchitecture #londonstudio #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #londonstudio #homeextensions #homeextensionslondon #homeextensionshertfordshire #homeextensionsessex #listedbuilding
This Chigwell properly was improved by front, side & rear extensions which had the effect of minimalising the ugly front gable projection. #londonarchitecture #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #chigwellhomes #uglyhouse #homeextensionshertfordshire #homeextensionslondon #homeextensionsessex
Not quite finished yet but so very nearly there. MARLIN Design was delighted to be asked to assist in bring this project to fruition. Removal of the roof and providing a new roof with a steeper pitch has allowed this tired bunaglow to become a two storey family home, with stunning countryside views. #c2designandbuild #bungalowconversion #londonstudio #hertfordshirearchitecture #essexarchitecture #tapcoslates #cedralweatherboard 📷 MARLIN Design ⚒C2Design&Build SLATES: Tapco WEATHERBOARDING:Marley Eternit Cedral Lap

Fantastic day spent being inspired by @mrgeorgeclarke with Mitsubishi Electrics learning about how to rethink the way we design buildings. #londonstudio #londonarchitecture #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #ecodan #airsourceheatpump #airsourceheatpumps #nomoregas #feelinginspired
I took this on a recent trip to Brick Lane, in London's East End. I can't help but think it is very Harry Potteresque. #londonarchitecture #londonstudio #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #londonstockbrick #streetlights #harrypotter #victorianlondon
Then and now pictures from today's survey in Ongar. I found the 'then' photo hanging on a wall in the cottage. It was taken in 1903 and features the owner at the time, Mr Stokes arriving home on his pony &trap. #essexarchitecture #londonstudio #londonarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #1903 #ongar #historicalphotos #listedbuilding

A visit to Greenwich this morning, and I had 5minutes to kill before the train back, so took this picture whilst I was waiting. #londonstudio #londonarchitecture #moderndesign #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #londonboroughofgreenwich #greenwich
So Wednesday was a testing day. The tube strike brought East London and its roadway approaches to grid lock. So whilst sitting in traffic in the middle of Epping Forest going nowhere fast, I took this photo of the autumnal colours of the forest. #eppingforest #trafficjam #queenscommonwealthcanopy nwealthcanopy #londonarchitecture #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #londonstudio #autumncolours

When you are building onto an existing structure, it is always recommended that you expose the existing foundations, so that you can be confident that you are able to add on the new loadings and not overload the existing foundations. #hertfordshirearchitecture #essexarchitecture #londonstudio #londonarchitecture #buildersbeware #foundation #homeextensionshertfordshire #homeextensionsessex #homefoundationsseries

This project has not only created a large open plan Livingroom for the client but also allowed the original staircase, which was far too steep and unsafe, to be replaced to creat a large, bright and light, open galleried landing using a new oak stair. #stairwell #oakstairs #naturaldaylight #brightstairwell #oakbanisters #londonstudio #londonarchitecture #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #happyclient #internalrefurbishment

Spender House, Ulting, 2016, designed by Richard and Su Rogers for Humphrey Spender. Credit: Catherine Hyland, Courtesy of Focal Point Gallery @cathyland1 @focalpointgallery Architectural radicalism joins Essex’s assets as Charles Holland claims the county is the birthplace of British modernism. "... Architecturally ambitious one-off houses in this period however were rare – Holland puts this down to Essex not being a county of second home owners, or of the wealth bourgeoisie. An exception is a modest house for Humphrey Spender at Ulting, an early work by Richard and Su Rogers, which he describes as ‘a techno-hymn to arcadianism’. Holland goes on to consider the role that the Essex Design Guide and the impact of Dedham-based classical architects Raymond Erith and Quinlan Terry may have had on the end of modernism in the county." #RIBA #RIBAJ #RIBAJournal #modernism #modernist #modernistachitecture #modernarchitecture #modern #SpenderHouse #Ulting #Essex #Essexarchitecture #RichardRogers #SuRogers #architects #architecture #architecturalradicalism #CharlesHolland @charlesjholland @charleshollandarchitects

Here is another great scheme just completed in Bishops Stortford. First floor side & rear extensions and a knock through internally into the garage to create a larger open plan Kitchen/Diner. #hertfordshirearchitecture #londonstudio #essexarchitecture #londonarchitecture #homeextensionshertfordshire #homeextensionslondon #homeextensions #bifoldingdoors #openplanliving #openplandesign

A little country walk to see Grayson Perry’s House for Essex (or Julie’s House). It’s quite a remarkable building to see, just nestled in the countryside, overlooking the River Stour. Perry grew up in Essex, and started his education in art at Braintree College where he did an Art Foundation course - the same course that I studied there some years later (still one of my favourite years of my art education). ‘When Living Architecture offered me the opportunity to collaborate with FAT it was a golden chance to realise a long held ambition to build a secular chapel’, said Perry. ‘The resulting building is a total art work, a fiction in which you can live, a digital age shrine and a homage to my home county.’ His ‘House for Essex’ is an ode to his fictional Essex everywoman - Julie Cope. ‘An everyday story of one woman’s life growing up and living in Essex...Julie’s House is a tribute to the county in which it sits and an allegory of what it is like to live here...a musing on religion, local history, feminism, happiness and death’ You can see the interior and stay at The House for Essex by entering the Living Architecture ballot, but the view from the outside with the accompanying views of the River Stour are worth the trip alone. ________________________________ #houseforessex #julieshouse #graysonperry #livingarchitecture #modernart #conceptualart #art #artinstallation #livingart #wrabness #manningtree #essex #essexart #essexarchitecture #essexcountryside #countrywalk #artwalk #architecture #architecturephotography #modernarchitecture #artarchitecture #riverstour
Oooops...it is so important to get your foundations right from the start. This small extension is literally falling apart. Daylight can be seen through this crack in the wall, and yes that is a gap down the side of the door big enough to put your hand in & all because of a botched DIY job. #crackingup #crumblingextension #subsidenceissues #architecture #buildingissues #hertfordshirearchitecture #essexarchitecture #londonarchitecture #londonstudio
A little thought can go along way to adding wow factor in a project. This simple detail of having a double row of thin splash backs with a 10mm gap between, to accommodate an LED strip light, does the trick. #kitchendesign #architecture #londonstudio #hertfordshirearchitecture #londonarchitecture #essexarchitecture #ledlights #redapples #quartzworktops
