We are an integrated design and architecture studio based in London and working internationally

Our practice is founded in material and cultural research with a singular approach to design, one that marries analysis with a consideration of the emotional impact of each project. We take ideas as seriously as feelings and find solutions that are intellectually rigorous yet effortless and simple. The passion here is to create an environment of open conversation with our clients and collaborators with a focus towards the Arts and wellbeing.

The quality of the Studio's work is established from the agglomeration of Jenny Jones’ status as a chartered architect and a visiting lecturer on the MA interior design program at the Royal College of Art, who trained in the offices of Rem Koolhaas and Richard Rogers.

We offer services from strategic vision assessments through to the finest detail of implementation on projects and briefs of all scales.

We are an independent studio, allowing us to concentrate on delivering a focused and dedicated service. We have also formed collaborations and partnerships to deliver to specific briefs and programmes.

THE SPACE BETWEEN

POLITICS OF SPACE | Can the design of space nudge behaviours? Can design be in the toolbox for social change? What is sense of place?

the space between


 

We are always between things. We exist in the space between.

 

How do dimension and scale affect how we behave?

What is harmony and how do we know we are in it/ seeing it?

What is "sense of place"?

Is space political : the politics of space

Can the design of space nudge behaviours?

How does the design of our environments affect our wellbeing?

Do materials make a difference to how we feel?

What is our relationship with space?

Can design be in the toolbox for social change?

Can design be a catalyst for change?

Can it be measured?

If the design of the environment was driven soley by the corporeal ; by the body. Would we be here now discussing “design”?

In so far as we “exist” the ergonomics are a given but the space that we occupy…is it just a question of function?

Is it really just about how much room we need between a cooker and a fridge?

How much room to sit without hitting the person in the pew in front of you?

What is the value of space?

Or what are the values of space?

What lies between?

Is it driven by economics?

You can BUY space. Or democratically do we all have the same? Some are more equal than others? IS space then commodified?

Does it perform or do we perform in it?

Subjectively one person’s value on space can be dramatically different to another’s . Their experience: their reality. India’s first class train ride is Etihad’s cargo.

What semiphorics are communicated when a simple function is imbued with extra space? What happens when you compress a “given” ergonomic? Say in Being John Malcovic. How do we perform differently/ behave differently?

What happens when the observer sees space from a new angle? The act of the belvedere renegogiates one’s relation to the collective. The individual and the city.

How has technology and the individual and the collective altered our perceptions and norms on the use and size and presence of space.

Our very own awareness of our own self image is willed onto singular projects and masterminds persuasive and extensive spatial rules.

The performative arrangements of objects, surfaces and scales create powerful, political, divisive, celebratory, ritualistic, provocative antig-ravitional sequential spaces with configurations that recall ancient geometries and invoke provocations on established typologies.

As our lexicon of spatial typologies grows so too does the ability to allow the play of juxtaposition, overlap , compression, scaling of these to create new performances. Programmatic mash ups, allowing a new dance to unfold….

SO…..How conscious are we of the whispers that influence how much space we think we should have?

The socio political

The economic

The hiearchical

The cultural

The advertising/commercial

Desire

Aspiration

Consumption versus Need

The technological

Data

Death of distance (star trek)

Metaphysical

Subliminal

The programmatic difference

Laws of aesthetics

Our perception

Time based experience: direct

And the indirect…

The scenographic / old stories / new stories

Associated values

In a dance between the subjective and objective we can provocate and interrogate the givens, we can listen and search wider and deeper to test out new notions.
