Images of Inglewood House – Kintbury, Berkshire

Launch day over for Inglewood House and deep into the next project Binswood Hall, this one couldn’t be more different !  Anyway, up for some air and time to upload the image; here is a taster, the full set are can be viewed HERE or click Designworks on the menu bar and select Ingelwood House project.

And we’re off !!

I cannot believe my holiday is almost over, 3 more days and IDC will be under starters orders.  Beginning to feel the pressure build as the days are getting nearer, a little like race horses lining up for the start of a big race.

2013 promises to be good,  lots of exciting work to get on with, new buildings to design the interiors for and one to install very soon!

 

Isn’t this building fabulous !  this one will be completed towards the end of this year, long way off yet, but will start detailing this as soon as we are back.

Calm descends

Chinking cups and the clatter of plates die down, papers folded and discarded, everyone journeying back back to their abode, staff having well earned rest after a busy day.  A the sun goes down a calm descends and Yao managed to get over to Mote House and take some photographs when it was quiet, or should I say in “lull” before the restaurant opens.  This building is 18th century built in the typical Georgian proportions, a wonderful space to work with


Not long to go now

This is our next project nearing completion, a large victorian house with a central galleried staircase.  Its been slowly taking shape these past months, pool and spa wing almost completed, main house due  in next few weeks.  Hard to believe with all the scaffolding up, that it will all come together , but slowly sections are being revealed.  Unlike the last project panic stations right up to the last moment, this project, although only 8 days to carry out the installation, feels like it will be finished at handover.  Keeping our fingers crossed

Here are some before images, wont be long and I will post the completed project hopefully


Happy New Year Everyone

Better late than never !!!

Now this building epitomises the new year in my book, a huge new white canvas, perfectly pristine, inspiring hope and great things for the future.

Zeer architects have the left the structure of this building to speak for itself, I love its simplicity, it speaks volumes to me…………………..  let it speak to you

pools on my mind

Recently our thoughts here at IDC have been on swimming pools, designing spa areas, and realising how one sites the pool is really a make or break decision, between the ordinary and the extraordingary.  Here is one that is “wild”  and most definitely extraordinary.  The Marina Bay Sands, Sky Park, Singapore, reputed to be the worlds most expensive hotel to be built  at a cost of $5 billion .  Architects http://www.msafdie.com/

architecture for chickens and in my favourite grey

I came across this beautiful structure today.  The simplistic layering,  I could imagine living  there myself, set in woodland by the edge of a lake.  Then I realised its for chickens, lucky them I say………

Frederik Roijé’s Bread Retreat, an architectural hen house for hens to bread and for humans to retreat.  Breed Retreat is made of wood finished with a durable grey coating and measures 260 x 260 x 180 (l x b x h) cm.  “To eliminate the estrangement from our origin respecting nature will be necessary.  Designing a special place will give nature its space. Even in urban society.”
