We’ve been talking roofs in the office recently. Building up on a roof in Central London is not very common yet penthouses command a serious premium and there’s a demand for commercial spaces with postcard views. What’s your opinion- is it a great development opportunity or a headache better avoided? ⠀

An insider’s view of St Paul’s Cathedral. St Paul’s is a working church and a London landmark but gets very little government funding. It relies on private fundraising to preserve, maintain and future proof this historical building.⠀

In praise of modernism 👩‍🔬The bricks pictured make up walls of a new pediatric surgery building in Uganda, designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The material is called rammed earth which is raw ground elements in different proportions making up shades and colours. Not only is it sustainable but also highly practical to keep temperature and humidity in a hospital constant. We were inspired to learn how architecture can harness modernity’s best knowledge to solve urban challenges of today. ⠀

Incurably curious? 🤓🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️ Wellcome Collection is a treasure trove of knowledge and Living with Buildings is a stand out exhibition of the season, if you are interested in how architecture has developed its thought over the past century to solve the challenges of urban living and public health. .

The story behind the headline... Isn’t it shocking to read this upbeat press release knowing what had happened few years later? This is the dark side of London housing- extreme profiteering, sometimes at the expense of human lives. ⠀

This wonderful 1920s poster was meant to encourage Londoners to leave the dirt of the city for the health benefits of the country. A hundred years later, the sentiment lives on and the new garden villages are to be built all over England. ⠀

As city dwellers we spend so much of our time in buildings so their quality have a direct effect on our wellbeing. There are a number of exhibitions on in London at the moment looking at the connection between architecture, design and wellbeing, which we recently visited and enjoyed. Here’s a close up on Renzo Piano’s seminal work in London, the Shard. ⠀

Friday throwback to Rome. This city captures the senses and haunts our dreams after every visit. Would you buy property here though? We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the real estate market in the eternal city. ⠀

September has come, it is hers⠀
Whose vitality leaps in the autumn,⠀
Whose nature prefers⠀
Trees without leaves and a fire in the fireplace.⠀
So I give her this month and the next⠀
Though the whole of my year should be hers who has rendered already⠀
So many of its days intolerable or perplexed⠀
But so many more so happy.⠀
Who has left a scent on my life, and left my walls⠀
Dancing over and over with her shadow⠀
Whose hair is twined in all my waterfalls⠀
And all of London littered with remembered kisses.⠀
⠀

We came across this poem in an article in the @ft_weekend by @charlotte_mendelson_ and loved it. ⠀
