The focus for this intimate extension is the interior spaces and materials, the external form a BOX that wraps the existing extension of the late-Victorian property. We seduced light into the middle room through the roof and super white materials – with a contradicting black bookcase. read more »

This project was taken on post planning approval, bringing further challenges and constraints to the project. Reconfiguring the previous proposal we unified the apartment through a single concept without having to reapplying for planning permission. This was achieved by removing internal partitions and working with existing angles of the mansard roof, the penthouse now offers a long continuous double-aspect space for the user. read more »
Urban Parallax Dream is a complex spatial response to the new urban quarter of Lend. It creates a flexible-density within the site. It’s a new coherent grain that absorbs and offers a complex and diverse urban lifestyle. It shows respect for and integrates; the existing Helmut-List-Halle, restaurant and housing; and works with the proposed energy towers on levels that go beyond spatial integration. read more »

A 22m x 10m L-shaped site with an extremely narrow width of just 5m bought unusual challenges to this project. Unlike its Victorian terraced neighbors, this site offered nothing in the way of setting-back from the front, rear or side elevations. Therefore designed to occupy the whole site, and being considerate in mass to its surrounding the design steps towards the corner of a supermarket car park. read more »
Beijing’s urban spatial coding has lead to vast quantities of the city within its central zones to become isolated, created by top down building design and urban planning. Entire streets of mass concrete structures eliminate options at ground level for pedestrians to manoeuvre freely; instead they are limited by a grid system from a residue of Mao spatial organisation. read more »
We took a simple standard extension, split it into two interlocking volumes one small & one large. This gave definition to the internal spaces and an interesting variation to what would have been generic.

How can we give form to the highly demanding programmatic needs of the schools changing demographics and work with the existing undulating and dramatic landscape of the schools grounds?
Maximising the sites landscape the design follows its contours above and below ground level. We split the arts center and new equipped dining hall onto either side of the site, with stunning views over East London in between them. read more »
EASTWEST Architecture is a design, construction and architecture practice based in Haggerston E8. They have an office of international architects working within the context of London. This residential architect practice offers extensive knowledge and experience in creative design, buildings and their construction, and architecture and what it can do to enhance the daily lives of people that use and inhabit space.
They are passionate about every single project they execute and at all times act in the interest of their clients to ensure that the right final product is delivered. The final product is a result of a developed idea built-up between the client and the architect. EASTWEST begin the design and brief development from the initial client meeting and work them simultaneously so that their clients can see the design evolve from the second client-architect meeting.
Our experience as London architects has seen a vast change during the last decade in how people's lifestyles have asked for more intelligent answers to live/work homes, an expanding families, sociable people wanting to create an extra guest room, or simply because they love their existing home so much that they want to make it big. So rather than just moving home to accommodate their changing needs -they have utilised their well-loved family homes and adapted them.
