Serving hut for Lightwoods House, Bearwood

A commission to design and fabricate a flexible outdoor building for Lightwoods House in Bearwood, that can serve as a coffee shop, bar and food serving hut. Taking inspiration from Lightwoods’ 18th century and Edwardian architecture, our design uses wooden panels painted in a high-gloss finish to match the house’s exterior joinery, and roof shingles that echo fountains in the adjacent park. It will be finished with two leaded glass panels. The hut will have concealed fixed wheels with a jacking leg in each corner, allowing it to be moved around the garden and park as required.

Tea for II at National Memorial Arboretum

Fabrication of Tea for II, an installation to mark VJ Day at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. We created a set of 20 tiled benches, designed by Ceramic Design students at Central St Martins college, and inspired by the Staffordshire pottery industry and the street parties that marked the end of World War II. The benches are made of exterior birch ply with hardwood edging, finished with tiles  reminiscent of traditional brown glazed tea pots, of the kind popularly used in the 1940s.
