BREAKING GROUND




After an interminable period satisfying everyone and their kitchen sink we have broken ground.... 12 month contract period, with a split level space at the rear to overcome the 'basement' effect that comes with a basement....

NEW COMPLETED PROJECT: BOFFI WIGMORE


Hiscox Parladé have just completed a second shop for Boffi UK, the British wing of the great Italian bathroom and kitchen company with Piero Lissoni as head of design.
The site was a former bank [originally Hamleys] on Wigmore Street, central London. Apart from painting everything grey we also converted the vaults to become trading space and now they contain bathroom displays and a meeting room. This is a company that do things properly and we like them very much.

Old St Pancras Churchyard.

Before Thomas Hardy gave up architecture to become a poet - writer. He was in charge of collecting the bones from the cementery during the construction of St Pancras Station. So disgusted with the immorality of progress he later wrote:
We late-lamented, resting here,
Are mixed to human jam,
And each to each exclaims in fear,
'I know not which I am!'





WATERLOO



In 1994 the channel tunnel terminal by Grimshaw opened to huge acclaim.
15 years later it closed and has now reopened as a temporary theatre showing the Railway Children.
The concrete finishes are still perfect...we know that buildings often
have a 25year life span... but 15 years!
How many railway themed plays are there? what are they going to do??
