House in SW London nears completion
MBA are advising York based practice DC-Architecture on the design of a new hotel near York’s historic Micklegate Bar. Following research into the history and development of the site and surroundings, and drawing inspiration from York’s surviving timber framed medieval buildings, a new design was developed with strongly rhythmical jettied elevations using untreated vertical larch fins with lime rendered panels between. The design makes the most of the slightly curved frontage of the site, provides a varied roof line, and breaks up what might otherwise have been a monolithic frontage into a series of smaller pavilions. The elevation reflects the roof form and layout of the hotel behind, which opens onto a small central garden courtyard accessed through an arch from Micklegate itself.Read less.

Marcus Beale Lecture at University of Cambridge – Architects Fees
Marcus Beale gave a lecture on fees at the University of Cambridge Part 3 professional practice course on 27 June 2018. He began by asking: why pay an architect anything at all? Ray and Charles Eames drew a beautiful Venn diagram showing the intersection between the interests of client and architect and the needs of society. Where they meet is the place where you are most valuable, and it’s all about value for money. Architects add value to sites and reduce risk in the construction process. Marcus explored how architects and clients choose each other, how an architect calculates the cost price and sets profit, and gave some suggestions as to how to present fee proposals and how to win a job even when your fees are higher than the competition.
