Central London, Spitalfields
Since establishing Chris Dyson Architects in 2004, Chris has worked on a variety of projects. The practice has built a fine reputation for working in conservation areas on historic and listed buildings. The practice prides itself on a very high degree of attention to detail and a flair for innovative and modern design, applying design intelligence to every project.
Chris has also collaborated with Sir Terry Farrell, James Stirling and Michael Wilford on numerous high profile projects since completing his studies at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow, with a particular interest in striking and original design concepts with particular care given to function, culture and environmental issues. Chris lives and works in Spitalfields central London, where his practice also works on the conservation and adaptation of old and listed buildings for new uses whether domestic or commercial use.
This is a great project / opportuity to create a strong counterpoint to the area’s exisitng strong artistic and commercial activities and create a richer social mix by providing a sense of place and identity, a place to idle stand and stare. Nearly 300 years of history is a fascinating tapestry to work with!
Healthrow airport as a new urban village in london, redeveloping and thinking of the future of london ? And build a sustainable new airport at the isle of grain. This would make for two viable and sustainable communities. Perhaps these ideas are too bold for this government? If implemented they would drive london forward as the Victorians did so well.
beautiful and sensible wonderful use of concrete
beautiful and elegant
Expandinhg Heathrow is not an option for those who live there or most londoners. the new island is a good idea and one that has been around for some time before boris picked it up for that reason it makes sense, the east has benefited hugely from the olympics and the improvement in infrastructure that brought with it. the birds will find a new home in the estuary the ship can be moved these are poor excuses for delaying sensible economic development of a much blighted area of the thames estuary.
