A few weeks ago I shot this really interesting residential extension and refurbishment in North London for Forrester Architects. The asymmetrical timber roof is painted with a special Swedish preservative paint that gives a stunning and unusual matt red finish.
A recent quick-turnaround commission of the newly completed Fetal Medicine Research Institute next to Denmark Hill station, for A21 Architects. The structure links a brand-new building into the terraced houses that are also part of the Institute.

A recent shoot of a mixed-use office and residential project for Mark Fairhurst Architects (www.mark-fairhurst.co.uk). The building is located next to the busy train tracks into London Bridge station. We found a good vantage point on an adjacent block, to put the building in context as dusk fell. And we took a few interior shots in a magnificent apartment - the perfect flat for a railway enthusiast.
The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour is a research centre of University College London. It is housed in a new building designed by Ian Ritchie Architects and engineered by Arup, with a wavy translucent glass facade running along Howland Street (and some great public-facing displays on neuroscience under the portico). I was in the area at dusk last night, and enjoyed watching it reflect the colours of the busy streets and darkening sky.
It was a real pleasure to shoot this South London loft apartment for Poulsom Middlehurst a few weeks ago. Or more precisely, one half of a one-room loft apartment, as the client was in the process of moving back in and we had to push his bags and boxes to one side of the space and focus on the other!
The big roof lights let in a huge amount of natural light. Luckily it was an overcast day so we didn't have big contrast ratios and shifting shafts of sunlight to contend with. We opted for a clean, unoccupied look and the white walls and bare wood floor looked great bathed in that soft light.
We didn't need any additional lighting so we could use our time to concentrate on the shapes and structures of their ingenious design. Sometimes it's great to turn the lights out and keep things simple...
