This month marks the 8th birthday of Studio Weave and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a shiny new, colourful website. Developed in collaboration with the most wonderful Nous Vous and Polimekanos, on visual identity and web design respectively, we are most excited to introduce this website that we hope reflects the weave personality and extent of our projects over the last eight years... happy exploring!
We have been unleashed into the world of housing design standards! Studio Weave were asked to carry out a feasibility study to redevelop a site in a top secret location in our fair capital. There are currently 150 homes on the site and the client would like to re-house their inhabitants within the site, while creating at least 50 new homes and improving the site’s contribution to the local area. Our proposals are all about cunning phasing strategies, sensible daylighting, and creating better integration with the surrounding urban fabric. Watch this space…

As part of our project for the National Trust to design the visitor experience and a new café for Rainham Hall, we've designed a set of cards that introduce the residents (past and present) to the public. Illustrator extraordinaire Mr Bingo has lent his inimitable drawing hand to create portraits of long-lost historical figures for the cards, which have just been installed large-scale on the hoarding for all to see. The 18th merchant's house is shrouded in hoarding as it undergoes a thorough restoration ready for opening to the public in 2015.
We have been awarded the 2014 RIBA Research Trust Award!
A big thank you to RIBA for selecting us from over 70 applicants and awarding £10,000 towards our research into independence and privacy in co-housing. Over the next few months, we will be working with co-housing groups across the UK and Ireland to investigate models of living together more closely.
We have just completed the refurbishment of a 1970s 3 floor maisonette in Homerton – yes, it is Je and Maria’s place! When we first met No. 11, it was in a very tired state. Without working electricity or plumbing, we had to strip it down to the bare bones. The project involved extensive reconfiguration including moving both the bathrooms, knocking down several walls, and replacing plumbing and wiring throughout. The excessive use of our favourite birch panelling material has earned it the nickname of ‘Plywood Palace’.
Architectural photographer extraordinaire Jim Stephenson spent an afternoon at Studio Weave HQ to observe how we work and the objects we surround ourselves with, as part of his weekly series of short films called Lightbulb. Maria and Je spoke to him about our design process and inspirations.

We were thrilled to hear that our client Nimble Spaces successfully secured funding for a theatrical regeneration project in Bridge Street, Callan in Co. Killkenny. Studio Weave will be working with theatre company Corcadorca to put on a show in the space, the legacy of which will be permanent infrastructural improvements for the town. This follows on from a project we’ve been working on over the last few months to encourage local children to re-inhabit this forgotten street in the town by creating a chalk game craze.
Up in Kintyre, Midden Studio is taking shape on site: the foundations have now been laid and the timber frame is currently under construction; and over in Belgium the zinc cladding is being fabricated. Seals continue to keep an eye on progress for us from the Atlantic shore but a few metres away. More on the project here.
Hornchurch - the village in the countryside in the city - has been highly commended in the 2014 national Urban Transport Design Awards. Studio Weave worked with Jacobs to complete this dramatic transformation of Hornchurch's town centre in 2013.
