Mapping of strategic opportunities on the tideways and basins of the East Thames, London. This work lead to identification of potential forms and typologies of housing to be floated on the river as a response to limited supply of key worker and family home supply in the surrounding areas.

Strategically placed full height mirrors and hidden lighting were used to enhance a pervasive sense of lightness and increased area, whilst bespoke sliding bookcases rationalised and optimised storage. Completed with Hogarth Architects.
The work previously described here can now be applied to isolate 360 degree isovists in contiguous space. Doing so provides four distinct spatial classes of isovist. Below we use the Soane Museum to outline these types. ‘Accessible’ space: when all walls used to define isovists are considered as solid and impermeable to vision, the isovists describe only that space which is directly accessible and can be walked into. This allows us to examine complex networks of circulation in an architectural […]
