Our design for the National Railway Museum reflects the spirit of the great railway architecture of the 19th century, generating uplifting and jubilant spaces that celebrate the excitement and reverence for the railways. The design is based on the team’s low-tech philosophy, dramatically reducing our reliance on concrete and steel to lower embodied carbon through a beautifully crafted timber frame structure. A combination of passive design principles and active systems reduce the site wide operational carbon footprint by 80%.
We are thrilled to be shortlisted for the National Railway Museum Central Hall design competition at York. The project is for a 4,500 sqm Central Hall to bridge between the museum’s two main halls and integrate the museum as a whole. From an open international competition of 76 teams from 19 countries, we are now working in a shortlist of five, with the winner announced in March 2020. It’s going to be an exciting three months! Full details of the competition can be found here.

We’ve had an exciting start on the Fratry project in Carlisle. Medieval Cathedrals turn out lots of surprises when excavation takes place! It’s been wonderful to strip back this historic interior to its former glory and see the whole space as one. More on the project in the recent AJ write up here.
Nice to have formally ’emerged’ in the AJ’s round up of the year, and we are pleased to be on their ‘People to watch in 2019’ write up. It’s been an intense past few years but great to see some of the results of the hard work coming through. Full article here.
