'From City to Room, A manifesto for better living' talk at the London Society Practice News

As part of a series of events connected to our new publication 'From City to Room, A manifesto for better living', we gave a talk hosted by the London Society at Studio Egret West.

Decades of underprovision, combined with unprecedented population growth mean that buildings have to work more efficiently than ever before, both in terms of their uses and the resources they use. The pressures of climate change also mean sustainability is no longer an add-on but the starting point for any discussion about how, where and what we build.

So how do we overcome these challenges. How can we ensure that more is also better? And what can we do to give people the homes, buildings, neighbourhoods and cities they need?

The talk explored the integrated thinking that we believe is necessary to solving today’s urban, social and environmental challenges.

Sands End Arts & Community Centre wins RIBA London Regional Awards 2022 Project Update

A triumph for Mæ as Sands End Arts & Community Centre is awarded a RIBA London Regional Award 2022.

Clad in a skin of honey-toned brick, roofs edged in pre-patinated copper, the new pavilions are inspired by the 19th century glasshouses that once stood on site in Fulham. The series of distinctive pavilions provide lettable spaces for arts and cultural activity, alongside a brand new cafe, making a significant contribution to the local community, who now run and manage the venue.
