The Revision Tour


Our team recently ventured out of the studio on a walking tour of selected former projects from the practice. Old Nicol Street, a live work space and the Lux in Hoxton Square were early and seminal projects for the practice. Everyone enjoyed hearing Richard describe their evolution and the urban context at the time of their construction.

In contrast, we visited a more recently completed project in Barts Square, where Prisca Thielmann described how a new urban quarter has encompassed  the redevelopment of a range of former hospital buildings on Little Britain and Bartholomew Close. Maccreanor Lavington designed two of the facades responding to the individual and contrasting urban conditions characterising two sides of the site, Bart­holomew Close and the Church Garth. The building contains residential units above a restaurant on the ground floor.

Whilst enjoying the City of London we took the opportunity to visit the NLA HQ and enjoyed our city from a bird’s eye view looking across the vast London model.

We always enjoy the opportunity to talk and walk, look and learn collectively. These tours form an important of our practice culture, helping staff to delve deeper into projects they may not have worked on directly, but can benefit from the lessons we are able to share. It was good timing for one of our many work placement students who joined us on her last day of her time with us.
