The design respects the traditions of the global institution and importantly provides a safe and flexible workspace focused on wellness and the daily experience of its occupants.

Affordable Homes for City Makers

The London Borough of Harrow Planning Committee have given our Sheepcote Road project unanimous support. This scheme for Pocket Living will provide 149 one bedroom affordable homes for Harrow’s first time buyers, regenerating a town centre brownfield site.


EVENT:

Thank you to all those who attended our LFA event 'Who Cares About the In-Between?', both in person at our Paddington Works studio and online via the livestream.

We believe in a holistic approach where focus on the in-between plays a significant role in making successful places and fostering caring communities. Spaces that make us feel healthy, be productive, collaborative and inspired.

We were joined by a panel of guest speakers including Nick Searl from Argent, Jacob Willson from BeFirst, Sophie Thompson from LDA Design, Sarah Douglas from The Liminal Space, Tina John from Pocket Living, Shawn Adams from POoR Collective and Renée Searle from Threefold Architects, to question the role that the in-between can play in creating high quality public realm, enabling community and encouraging diverse developments.

We are really pleased to have 2 of our projects for Airbnb and Space Paddington featuring in the New London Architecture WRK/LDN Report 2021: ‘Office Revolution?’

The report is focused on London’s current response to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the capital’s workspaces and wider urban context. Evaluating how workplaces and the city that surrounds them will have to adapt in the long term.


THE DAVIDSON PRIZE:

We have been shortlisted for the inaugural year of The Davidson Prize ‘Home/Work – A New Future’, with our entry ‘Shifting Perspectives: Making Sense of Net to Gross’ in collaboration with The Liminal Space.

Our proposal seeks to rebalance future housing developments to give the spaces ‘in between’ a new purpose. We explored how the areas between the net internal area of a dwelling and the gross internal area of a building can offer up opportunities for a fundamental shift in the way we view working from our home environment.

"Throughout the display, I have been keen to stress the cyclical nature of sustainability – a careful balancing act that ensures that we use only that which we can replace. One project, by Threefold Architects, stands out in this respect – reforesting a piece of the landscape in South Downs National Park and using the felled timber as raw material for the new building. Hand-drawn illustrations of the project only serve to further elevate it."

Delighted to see our latest Airbnb project published on Dezeen!

"Two pavilions designed by Threefold Architects, situated at either end of a south London garden, draw material inspiration from the construction of the original house and bracket a new swimming pool, created as part of the same project. The architect proposed two “simple brick buildings with a shared architectural language”, connected by a stone path running along the garden’s northern boundary."

We consider how people will move, think, behave & feel in & about our buildings. 


“Our new workspace really embodies Pocket Living – elegant and affordable, playful and functional, a design which responds directly to its place in the city. The simple architectural intervention successfully organises the space and has become the backbone of the office, its created a calm and studious atmosphere giving us the perfect balance of lively collaboration and quiet concentration. Threefold were great to work with, they really got us and have delivered a great scheme on time and on budget “ Angharad Palmer - Pocket Living


We partner with people who have a point of view & aspire to achieve remarkable designs
