FF studio gets a makeover

Feilden Fowles Studio works
In preparation for our studio event on 27.10.11 we have been refreshing our space. The improvements include a new raised floor, which has been heavily insulated with a combination of Thermafleece (sheepswool) and an acoustic/ thermal layer of superfoil. New ply clad walls and window boxing will continue our gradual sealing of the existing concrete framed building fabric in preparation for the winter.
