We were more than slightly miffed that your article on Michael Nathenson (aj 23.3.00) says our input on the project was to obtain building regulations approval' for Nathenson and states 'ordinary mortals would have to enlist the help of an architect if they want to follow his (Nathenson's) lead. You have nevertheless credited us as architects. This makes our role unclear, to put it mildly. People who did not know better might think all we did was fill in an application form to Camden.
We would like to make it clear that we were fully involved in the design from the earliest stages as architects. Mike Nathenson, an interior designer, would himself agree that he relies on architects and engineers to turn his albeit extremely inspiring ideas and concepts into a workable and buildable solutions. Ian McDonald as architect should be given the credit he deserves for making a series of very tricky concepts work brilliantly well.
