Our second fit out project for tech start-up Paddle is near completion.
Having quickly outgrown the space we designed for them at the end of last year, Paddle took over the lease of the adjacent office in Bermondsey Square. The new fit out includes bespoke joinery items (meeting booths, a panelled stand up area, lockers and fitted storage), a new kitchen and shower rooms, and, of course, another massive stripy curtain.
We’ll be presenting a paper at the 2018 DIMH conference in Birmingham in May.
We’re really excited to be presenting our work in the field of mental health to an audience of healthcare professionals. We’ll be discussing how developing ideas through art installations and user research has helped us design resilient, imaginative clinical environments.
Enabling works have started at the site of the co-working space we’re designing for Ealing Council. Works include the rehaul of the heating and ventilation systems, in advance of construction starting this summer.

James will be speaking as part of the Design Museum's 10 years of Designers in Residence celebration event on Sunday the 17th of September.
The programme supports early career designers in developing their body of work through a new strand of research and practice. James's project Rooftops and Rookeries explored 'bad' housing typologies from London's past to offer suggestions of how we may live and build in dense urban areas in the future.
Visit the Design Museum website for more information about the event.
We've been running a series of events for creative businesses at Ealing Works, the new co-working space we're developing with Ealing Council.
From creative thinking for business to social media strategies, the events have been a fun and informative way of building the Ealing Works community in anticipation of the opening of the new work space.
For more information about future events, visit the Ealing Works website.
Projects Office have completed a new workplace for financial technology start-up Paddle. A fast construction programme meant that works had to take place over the Christmas / New Year period to ready the space for the team to start work on the first day of January.
Projects Office has been appointed by Ealing Council and the GLA to design a new workspace in West Ealing. We'll be transforming an unloved office into a dynamic new community working hub, with lots of input from the community and local college.
Entrepreneurs, small businesses, students, artists and makers of West Ealing: get involved! https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/manifesto-workshop-tickets-29897738942
A continuation of our work on the Madlove project created by artists the vacuum cleaner and Hannah Hull, we worked with Benjamin Koslowski to design a fantastical future asylum. The large architectural model is the finale of the Wellcome Collection's latest exhibition, Bedlam: the asylum & beyond.
Our Flying Colours display for Uniqlo's Regent Street store, created as part of RIBA's annual shop window competition is now live, complete with a flock of flapping pigeons.

For London Festival of Architecture 2016, we played an architectural version of Consequences with local community groups. You can see the absurd outcomes in our exhibition at Oxo Tower Wharf until 4th July 2016.
Read more about our approach and thoughts on real community consultation over at the LFA blog.
We're working on an exhibition at the Oxo Tower's G11 gallery as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2016. It's a lighthearted alternative approach to community consultation, to see if it's possible for everyone to get exactly what they want (spoiler: it probably isn't). Details of the exhibition to follow.
London Festival of Architecture runs from 1 – 30 June. www.londonfestivalofarchitecture.org
We spent a brilliant and productive weekend in a rambling castle in deepest darkest Poland, working with children's furniture start-up moKee to develop their branding and content strategies.
