The ambition for the studio was to both construct and run it using the latest sustainable materials and technologies. Rather than pour concrete which is environmentally problematic, screw piles were used for the foundations, and the walls, roof and floor structure are built from timber frame. Instead of specifying standard petrochemical insulation that is widely available for the studio’s thermal envelope, the walls and roof were specified to be entirely breathable, using insulation made from both wood fibre and recycled denim from the fashion industry. There were also no plastic waterproofing membranes used in the build. There will be samples of the insulation products available and the architect will be on site to discuss their first hand experience using these materials and technologies.
Schindel Studio is the workspace of the landscape painter Amelia Humber. Amelia's oil paintings strive to relay the atmosphere and emotion of the landscape through a personal and momentary experience. They contain the ideas of capturing those immediate feelings of drama in a continuously changing landscape, and her work will be on display in the studio.
Ao-ft co-founders', Liz Tatarintseva and Zach Fluker, Spruce House and Studio is the pair’s joint home in east London’s Walthamstow. Not only has it been a personal labour of love, it’s also the first flagship project of the practice owners' newly minted architecture practice.
An 'Italian Romanesque' church set in Epping Forest, St Peter's was founded in 1840 and extended in 1887. The building underwent a major reordering throughout 2020 to save it from subsidence and create new community facilities.
John Shaw, 1840
