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

Had to say goodbye to this little beaut this week. #harlowcivicsociety Architecural design award is only held by the recipient for one year. Good luck to this year's nominees. #londonarchitecture #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #londonstudio
Innovation and design are at the forefront of our work! We want to bring leading designs and the latest technology to our clients. This architectural masterpiece really focuses on the kitchen being the main communication point in the home! #kubekitchens #moderndesign #luxurykitchens #architecture #essexarchitecture #essex #essexarchitectureweekend @leichtkuechen
After...and Before. What a transformation! www.method.studio • • • #architecturaldesign #architecturephotography #essexarchitecture #renovation #houserenovation
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
The inglenook fireplace of a Grade II listed home that I have surveyed today. Built in 1640 we will hopefuly be adding a large open plan Kitchen and a master Bedroom. #hyggehomes #londonstudio #architecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #essexarchitecture #inglenookfireplace #listedbuilding #grade2listed #logburner
Exciting times at Architectural Hub this week as we prepare to submit a number of Planning applications!

"... 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
On the move from the beginning of September. New staff and new premises. Great to have so much work on. #growingbusiness #holtscourt #londonstudio #londonarchitecture #essexarchitecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #lifeofselfemployed #harlowcivicsociety
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
Need someone experienced in working on listed buildings? MARLIN Design has worked on many Grade I and Grade II listed properties to secure Planning Approval and Listed Building Consent for alterations and extensions. #listedbuilding #londonstudio #architecturaldesign #architecture #hertfordshirearchitecture #essexarchitecture #londonarchitecture #thatchedroof #thatchedcottage
The contrast of the oak staircase, white painted walls with the exposed brickwork really help in setting this huge extension project apart from others that I have developed. #hertfordshirearchitecture #labc #bishopsstortford #exposedbrick #homeextensions #homeextensionshertfordshire #essexarchitecture
Another lovely completed scheme. This substantial property is part of a gated development within the grounds of the Grade I listed Fyfield Hall. The extension now gives an additional living room over looking the river and fields beyond. #architecture #architectureporn #fyfield #timberframed #bifoldingdoors #homeextension #homeextensions #essexcounty #essex #hyggehomes #hygge #essexarchitecture #londonarchitecture #weatherboardhouse #listedbuilding #listedbuildingslondon
Dagenham's Princess Cinema had stadium style seating—the circle didn't overhang. It opened in 1932 and operated until 1960, then became a bowling alley until the mid-noughties. Looks like it's a church now. #dagenham #essexarchitecture #londonarchitecture #artdecocinema #postwarmodernism #hopperesque
Harlow Town Station. #throwbackthursday #tbt
Grays' State Cinema opened in 1938 with The Hurricane, closing with the same film in 1988. It seats 2200 and retains its art deco interior and a Compton Organ that featured in Dennis Potter's Lipstick on Your Collar. It's one of only a handful of cinema organs still in its original location. The building appeared in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Jamiroquai's Deeper Underground video and the Jericho TV series. Owner JD Wetherspoon plans to restore it with a £3m investment and bring the winds of change. #graysstatecinema #grays #thurrock #artdecocinema #1930scinema #essexarchitecture #artdecoarchitecture #frederickchancellor
'Little Known Fact' alert 🚨. Essex is home to some of the earliest British examples of modernist architecture. This is the splendid Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, built by architect Joseph Emberton in 1931. It's one of only a handful of designs built in the International Style in this country. And I think it's fabulous. #royalcorinthianyachtclub #architecture #architecturelovers #internationalstyle #modernist #modernistarchitecture #whitesurface #josephemberton #emberton #architect #stucco #purelines #burnhamoncrouch #1931 #MOMA #EXHIBITION1932 #cleanlines #rivercrouchessex #essexarchitecture #essex #riverview #whiteblackblue #building #built #design #angular #lookout
Day 2 of #EssexArchitectureWeekend took us to the beautiful 1960s modernist houses of Vicarage Hill, Benfleet, designed by Essex architect Norman W T Brooks. This view is from the back garden of one of the houses kindly opened for us to nose around - complete with sunbeam! #EAW #NormanWTBrooks #modernist #modernistarchitecture #modernistdesign #architecture #1960s #vintagehome #retro #essexarchitecture #modernism #architectdesigned #Benfleet #Essex #VisitEssex #Sunday #openhouse #HostUnusual @radicalessex @albanyarts
Feeling a bit Scandi around here #essexarchitecture
"In effect, the apartment block was a small vertical city, it's two thousand inhabitants boxed up in the sky" � A personal favourite I've looked up at for 21 years, Brooke House in Basildon, constructed 1962 and designed by Sir Basil Spence and Anthony B Davies #brutalism #brutalistarchitacture #concretecrush #modernism #essexarchitecture #thisbrutalworld #brutal_architecture
