Urban Plunge: New designs for city swimming featuring our Thames Baths Project.
11 September - 10 January 2015, Roca London Gallery.
Urban Plunge explores both existing schemes and future visions for river swimming in the heart of our cities.
Commissioned by Roca London Gallery, it showcases international design and architectural projects that transform urban rivers into public leisure spaces, giving people an exciting new, water-level perspective on their metropolis.
Curator Jane Withers, a design consultant and co-founder of Wonderwater, has selected five key projects to illustrate architecture and design’s role in radically changing river usage, challenging our attitude to the urban water environment.
Accompanying the exhibition Urban Plunge, a notable panel discuss the capital's waterway and ask will we soon be swimming in the Thames again? Exploring what it takes to make the river a leisure space and how design can develop a natural urban retreat.
We recently started work on a £3m new build house in Surrey.
The site is currently occupied by a listed barn that will be integrated into the new house as formal living areas. The property is single storey with a basement pool and gym.
The Delfina Foundation project is a finalist in the AJ Retrofit Awards 2014.
Winners announced in September 2014.
British modernist architect Patrick Gwynne completed this private house, Past Field, in 1960. Gwynne and his client continued to extend the house up until the architect passed away in 2003. Studio Octopi have now been appointed to replace the 1970’s extensions and restore elements of this historic Grade II Listed house in Henley-on-Thames.
