Architectural photography of the Jersey Energy From Waste Facility by the magnificent Hopkins Architects: definitely one of my favourite schemes to photograph so far. Jersey is stunning, and this ballsy, powerful, high-tech industrial piece of architecture makes a fantastic addition to the island. The hall is one of the most impressive spaces I have seen, and would make a great restaurant… Not only beautiful, this building makes a significant, positive environmental impact by burning waste produced not only by Jersey but also by neighbouring Guernsey, and cleanly converting it into energy.

I used a large format camera, the Toyo VX125b, Rodenstock 135mm f 5.6 Apo-Sironar-S, Schneider 72mm f/5.6 Super-Angulon XL, Rodenstock 210mm f 5.6 Apo-Sironar-S lenses. The film was Fuji 160NS in 4×5”.

Some of these photographs were featured in the new Hopkins Architects monograph, Hopkins 3.

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London.

This housing scheme was designed by Tompkins-Rygole Architects. The project achieves a high-density of residences in a collective housing scheme in Rumbeke, a suburb in the region of Flanders, Belgium. Despite this density, each residence maintains uncompromised privacy, while still enjoying a a large amount of natural light. The scheme embodies the practice’s usual philosophical approach and sensitive deployment of materials.
