Londonon Practice News

Londonon is a rolling research and residency programme in cities around the globe, an initiative which Mæ are excited to get involved with. 

Collaborating with fellow London based architecture practices, we pool resources, question, collaborate, make and experience, to broaden our minds, expand our reach and widen our worldview, following the prime minister’s triggering of Article 50.

The first leg of the international research programme was launched on the 23rd of October at a week-long workshop with Carl Turner Architects, Coffey Architects, Duggan Morris Architects, Gort Scott, Haptic Architects and Mæ as participants.

Refurbish / Reinforce / Remodel Research News

Following the Government’s Estate Regeneration National Strategy initiative, we commissioned a film exploring three approaches to Estate Regeneration; Refurbish / Reinforce / Remodel.

This follows the Prime Minister's proposal back in January 2016 to extend life chances across Britain, with the goal to radically transform 100 estates across the country. 

In our short documentary, Alex Ely describes three avenues for transformation being developed by Mæ. 'Refurbish' looks at the reuse and renovation of existing stock, ‘Reinforce’ proposes infilling as a means to intensify and sustain a neighbourhood, and ‘Remodel’ offers a vision of how to positively regenerate failed estates. Each approach aims to improve the quantity and quality of housing on those estates, and to improve the life chances of those who live there.
