Redefining Brutalism by Simon Henley | www.e-architect.com

There is a genuine resurgence of interest in this period of architecture. Brutalism is a highly debated topic in the architectural press and amongst architectural critics and institutions who promote the preservation of these buildings.

This book is unique in combining beautiful, highly illustrated design with description of both British and International brutalist buildings and architects, alongside analysis of the present and future of brutalism. Not just be a historical tome, this book discusses brutalism as a living and evolving entity.

Frampton Arms & Lyttelton House, Hackney, Northeast London, England

We have gained planning permission for two mixed-tenure residential schemes in the London Borough of Hackney: Frampton Arms and Lyttelton House. Both are located on the edge of the post-war Frampton Park Estate. Both are designed to make connections between the existing housing estate and the surrounding historic streets, and to do this humanely. Together they will provide 45 new homes.

To achieve this, at Frampton Arms, we have picked up on “urban artefacts” like bridges within the composition of the building to create a sense of drama and delight on the way to and from apartments. Inside, hallways and staircases are generous. A veranda coupled to each of the three new villas serves as outside amenity space and in one case as gallery circulation. Lyttelton House – a palazzo in miniature – similarly uses verandas to create enjoyable inside – outside spaces, mediating between domestic and urban realms. These verandas also play an important part in accentuating the curve of the street. Apartments on the lower floors of Lyttelton House are arranged around a central hall and staircase. Above, a series of houses are planned around a courtyard open to the sky.

Our project for transforming six Victorian warehouses into studios and offices for the Benyon Estate in Hackney is taking shape on site. The remodelling of these buildings recollects our earlier completed work 10–22 Shepherdess Walk by treating the roof of these warehouses as a landscape in microcosm on which are to be constructed a series of small prefabricated pavilion studios.

We are delighted to announce that last week we appointed Craig Linnell as our Studio Director. Craig has been with the practice as an Associate / Associate Director for sixteen years after joining in 1997. He is leading on the new Chadwick Hall student residences project at the University of Roehampton where we have completed The Yard, an experimental brick court, and the first built phase of our masterplan for the University.

You will see that the studio’s name has changed from Henley Halebrown Rorrison to Henley Halebrown (as above). This follows on from Ken Rorrison’s retirement from private practice earlier in 2016.
