moving on up...

Since our last newsletter in October 2013, we’re happy to say that business is flourishing. This update celebrates some new futures - including our new offices - and gives you a snapshot of our recent projects.

from east to west

Since we became a limited company in April 2014, things have gone from strength to strength. So much so that we’re heading west – into new offices. From February 2015, Darren Oldfield Architects Ltd will be based in the Parkhall Business Centre in West Dulwich, a couple of miles away from our former East Dulwich postcode. 

Parkhall’s lovely art deco building has the added benefit of housing Volcano Coffee’s on-site Roastery and Café. It is going to be a tough challenge to keep our daily caffeine habit to sensible levels: their coffee is fantastic. If you are in the area, or would like to come to talk about a potential project, you are very welcome to drop by for a coffee and a chat:

awards & new projects

It’s particularly gratifying to see projects now reaching completion that were only just kicking off in early 2014. Our clients continue to choose us for innovative and appealing design-led spaces: this was the case with our first completed project on Overhill Road, SE22. We’re delighted that this project has also just been nominated for a regional award. More details are on our website, and the sidebar also gives a link and some pictures.

We have recently started work with George Clarke Projects to assist them with the extensive refurbishment of a high-end restaurant in Clapham. The project includes a new offshoot restaurant and penthouse apartment floor above. We’re thrilled to be working on this mixed-use building and are looking forward to getting the clients’ front- and rear-of-house spaces into great shape.

new partnerships

2014 was the year of forming new partnerships.  We’re delighted with our strong and ongoing collaborations with Ashworth Parkes Architects, George Clarke Projects, Blue Engineering, Skeet Architecture, Urban Space, Southwark BC, and Clapham Estates.

Through these partnerships, our project base is widening. We’re now working on multi-unit residential and commercial projects, new houses, and larger private home refurbishments.

From our base in London, we continue to work on projects in Cambridge, Sheffield and elsewhere in the country, so if you have a seed of a project or are seeking advice, do get in touch.

LABC awards nomination

Our first completed project on Overhill Road in East Dulwich, has been nominated for the LABC awards by Southwark Building Control.
