Nov 2021Red House Completes

The Red House, a new build brick house in rural Dorset, is on the cover of this month's RIBA Journal special issue on houses. Contributing editor Chris Foges writes, "It was to be almost 10 years before the couple – now in their 50s – spent a night there, under the oversailing, almost alpine roof of an extraordinary new house that has replaced the crumbling cottage. It was worth the wait. Not only has David Kohn Architects produced a building rich in incident and ideas, but the project also benefits from the refinement of the owners’ aims over time."

Oct 2021Oxford construction starts

Construction has started on David Kohn Architects’ £44 million quad for New College, Oxford.

Sep 2021Design District Opens!

The Greenwich Design District opens to the public on 15th September 2021. The Financial Times architecture critic, Edwin Heathcote writes of our two buildings A4 and B4, "Kohn has clearly had fun... with chunky brick columns, a green trellis of a facade and glass etched into block patterns, it plays with reality and representation, with scale and style." Read the whole article here (paywall). To attend the launch party, rsvp at Eventbrite here.

Jul 2021Covent Garden Rooftop

Construction has started on a new rooftop apartment in Covent Garden. '"I’ve always been intrigued by the additional spaces of a house,” says David Kohn, “such as a bay window or an extension, because they’re often where the delight is. They’re the things people remember.” And so he’s designing a three-storey home in central London, for an architecturally enlightened property developer, that “is all the extensions of a house without a house”, a compilation of constructional off-cuts, of curves, bays, projections and recessions,' writes Rowan Moore, the Observer architecture critic. Visit the Guardian's website to read the whole article. For more project information visit Baylight Properties' website.

Jun 2021"Full-on PoMo Revival"

The Guardian architecture critic Oliver Wainwright describes David Kohn Architects' two buildings for the Greenwich Design District as "a full-on PoMo revival... channelling James Stirling’s 1987 Clore Gallery at Tate Britain, his pair of buildings feature bright green square grids contrasting with red bricks, colonnades of fat columns, and a jaunty rooftop sign." Read more at the Guardian website here. Visit the project page of our website here. The buildings are due to complete later this year.
