A new-build housing scheme containing 116 private residences and 28 affordable homes. The architect created a clear sense of place with the massing of the structure and enhanced the street by providing amenities for the local population at street level. The scheme features landscaped, communal courtyards, and is carefully orientated to maximise sun penetration, achieving a situation where no living spaces have a purely northerly outlook. All apartments have a large balcony or terrace. The choice of materials creates dialogue with the history of the area, consisting of brick and adjustable metal panels, with cedar boarding adding warmth.

A new car manufacturing facility for Jaguar Land Rover, featuring saw tooth sections that allow large quantities of north lighting into the fabrication floors, situated on a brownfield site near Wolverhampton. The facility gives 185,000 sqm of space, including office accommodation, production floors and a community education facility. The design is modular, based on a 30m grid, the large spans allowing for flexibility as required for long run production lines. Glass is used both to bring in light and to create connections to the surrounding landscape. The building features the UK’s largest photovoltaic cell array.
