Nov 2023Manser Medal 2023

We are delighted to be the recipient of the 2023 Manser Medal, the Architects' Journal's House of the Year Award. The practice worked with the clients Suzanne and Peter Redstone over 12 years to convert five buildings on their farm in Devon into residential use. The last, Cowshed, repurposed a 50 year old agricultural barn as a home, artist's studio and office. The award judges reflected, ‘an exemplar of the best of retrofit,’ ‘brilliant not just as a reuse project but as a regeneration of a site. It’s so interwoven and integrated with the context,’ ‘sustainability at a whole different level.' Read more on the Architects' Journal's website here.

Aug 2023Modern Art Oxford

We are thrilled to have won an invited competition to redesign the ground and lower floors of Modern Art Oxford (MAO). One of the UK’s leading contemporary art spaces, MAO has an international reputation for innovative and ambitious programming. It is housed in the former City Brewery and many of the building’s historic features survive within the gallery’s characterful spaces. We will be sharing our initial ideas at an evening workshop on 14th September. Visit MAO's website for more details.

Jul 2023Cowshed nominated for AR New into Old Awards

We are delighted that the Cowshed has been shortlisted for The Architecture Review New into Old Awards 2023.

The Cowshed is a new home and studio for artist Suzanne Blank Redstone and her husband Peter Redstone. The Redstone's originally built the cowshed in the 70s to house their herd of Jersey cattle. Fifteen years ago they began converting their farm, with David Kohn Architects masterplanning the site to create a co-housing community with five new homes converted from former agricultural buildings. The Cowshed is the last house to complete, creating a future-proof home for the couple with Suzanne’s studio at the centre.
