Pivot House August 2018

Pivot House is a new super-low energy, low impact family home in the Norfolk countryside. The building sits outside any settlement boundary, hence the design meets the challenging criteria of Paragraph 79 (formerly Paragraph 55) of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

The building concept relates to the nature of tree growth, with a parabolic arrangement of beams flying from a central spine. This is demarcated by the location of the tree placed in the centre of the courtyard, providing a complex timber framed structure, which can be achieved on a realistic budget using locally sourced air dried timber.

The building is lowered into the landscape with a green roof to subtly blend the building into its surroundings, as well as enhancing local biodiversity.

Structure Workshop has been providing scheme and detailed design through concept to construction.

Fourth Plinth – Lamassu March 2018

In 2015 Isis militants released video footage of themselves destroying the face of one the commanding stone statues that had guarded the gates of the ancient city of Nineveh for more than a thousand years. The Lamassu – winged bulls with human faces – were among the most monumental casualties of a spree of destruction that over just a few days reduced many of Iraq’s most precious artefacts to rubble.

This life-sized representation, installed on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square is part of an ambitious long-term project by Michael Rakowitz The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist with an intent to reconstruct the 7,000 objects known to have been looted from the National Museum of Iraq in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion by the US-led coalition.

Working with art fabricators The White Wall Company we developed and designed the sub frame and armature that allowed 10,000 brightly coloured date syrup cans to be fastened to the envelope giving the sculpture its distinctive appearance.
