St Mary’s University College, Twickenham, architectural photography

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London. My website is www.simonkennedy.net

St Mary’s University College Twickenham has a beautiful new sports facility designed by architects Rivington Street Studio. A really fantastic day for this one, beautiful Autumnal light all morning, conveniently clouding over in the afternoon so that I could have lunch, and then becoming beautiful in the evening once again in time for a lovely sunset.

The £5.8 million scheme extends and renovate existing sports facilities at St Mary’s College, adding 1950 square meters and refurbishing 2000 square meters of the existing facility. The centre is in part for use as a training facility leading up to the Olympic games this Summer, and includes gym facilities, a large new sports hall and changing rooms, all housed in an exemplary low-energy development. Architectural photography completed over one day. (All images copyright Simon Kennedy.)

Cannon Place, Cannon Street London.

Foggo Associates’ scheme for Cannon Place renovates and extends a very busy underground and network rail scheme, providing 36,000 square meters of office accommodation. Cannon Place is eight stories high, sitting above the station featuring curved and double-curved glazing, atria, spectacular views across the city, and some impressive external structural steelwork.

Architectural photography completed over two days, using 5×4” large format Fuji Pro 160 NS, in a Toyo VX125b. The lenses used were a Schneider 58mm Super-Angulon f5.6 XL, Schneider 72mm Super-Angulon f5.6 XL, Rodenstock 135mm Apo-Sironar-S f5.6, Rodenstock 210mm Apo-Sironar-S f5.6.
