Cork house will be open as part of @openhouselondon this Saturday from 10am till 5pm. Come and meet Allie and Gilbert from @nimtimarchitects and see the cork up close. Check it out in @timeoutlondon today. Read more about cork @wearehomenotes - see link in our bio. ‘The process by which cork is made could not be more sustainable. It is harvested by stripping the outer layer of skin off the tree with a small hatchet that then regrows in time for the next harvest. The cork is shredded and compressed at high temperatures, causing it to expand and the sap to melt to form a glue that binds it all together. Once cooled, it can be cut to measure ready to be put up as cladding. None of the harvested bark goes to waste in the process apart from the dust produced along the way, and that’s it - no added ingredients!’ Photo by @megantaylorphoto #openhouselondon #OHL19 #architectureforeverybody #cork #corkhouse #nimtim #nimtimpress #dontmoveimprove #residentialarchitecture #creativethinking #interiors #homeinspo #home #architecture #housesofinstagram #pink #millenialpink #pivotdoor #insideoutside #sustainablearchitecture #changebydesign

We will be closed on Friday 20th September from 11am as the studio will be taking part in the Climate Strike hoping to create action on climate change from the leaders of the country. The planet is set to warm between 3C and 4C by 2100, with massive ramifications for everyone’s quality of life. We will be protesting for climate action for ourselves and the future generations. #climatestrike #climatechange #stopclimatechange #climate #unitedforclimate #unitedforclimatechange #climatestrikelondon #strikewithus #fridaysforfuture #schoolstrike4climate #youthstrike4climate #uniteforclimate #ActOnClimate

WIP - Sketching out design solutions on a wall on site at our Clerestory project. We like to create an atmosphere of collaboration and dialogue where people are unafraid to bring ideas and unusual solutions. We try to inspire, challenge, delight and by inviting clients to feel ownership of these ideas, they become bolder and more ambitious in terms of what the project can be. Nice to hear good words from our clients: ‘I can see that you all take time to pay attention to the finer details, which makes it a pleasure to work with you.’ #finerdetails #allinthedetails #onsite #wip #sketching #residentialarchitecture #homeinspo #home #interiors #architecture #nimtim #dontmoveimprove #architectsonsite #project #projectonsite #architectureforeverybody #construction #ppe #oneofakind #clerestory #goodclients #testimonials #clientfeedback #goodclientrelations #fridayfeeling #almosttheweekend

A new exciting project that we are currently working on in the studio. In all our work we like to take the time to understand and analyse the existing spaces and how they are used. We look at key activities, processes and draw our own observations from these which inform our design responses. #WIP #creativethinking #analysis #design #feasibility #workflow #architectureforeverybody #interiors #architecture #observations #nimtim #workshop #spatialplanning #spaces

Our Hutch House project: the ground floor is opened up to provide a layout more suited to contemporary lives with subtly defined spaces for different activities. Arches between different spaces create soft thresholds and echo the openings on the original front elevation. The deep arches also conceal inbuilt storage, a utility space and recess for a fridge/freezer.

‘a well-constructed brief will allow for serendipity, unpredictability, and the capricious whims of fate, for that is the creative realm from which breakthrough ideas emerge.

Material study for a new project. The design creates a better connection between the raised internal ground floor, the lower external garden level and the lower ground floor below. A wide bridge extends from the ground floor and leads onto the lowered garden. Large platforms, orthogonal planters (like stepping stones ) and shallow steps extend from the lower ground floor patio up to the garden level. #axo #creativethinking #residentialarchitecture #dontmoveimprove #homeinspo #home #insideoutside #bridge #gardenbridge #gardendesign #garden #axo_madness #architectureonpaper #archisource #landscape #landscapedesign #making #designing #rethink #visualisation #WIP #collage #perspective #materialstudy

The roof at our Hutch House project. Externally the roofs pitch down to enclose a small external terrace whilst internally, the soffit is exposed to define a tall and dramatic dining and kitchen space. The limestone tiled floor continues onto the terrace - subtly changing from a honed finish to a bush hammered finish externally.

Our Hive House project is on @brick development.association today - see link in bio and our story highlights for more pics. Photo by @megantaylorphoto The stack bond references the internal grid of plywood structure. The bricks continuously wrap down the external envelope to form the patio. Our amazing contractor mitred the corner bricks on site so we could have consistency at the corners. #brickpatterns #hivehouse #home #residentialarchitecture #homeinspo #ihavethisthingwithbricks #insideoutside #brickwork #brickgeometry #stackbond #mitredcorner #mitredbrick #grid #pattern #graphic

We are trying to create new ways to understand how our clients work/ live/ play and how they would like this to change in the future. We use tools and discussion to investigate how existing spaces are used and how activities/ uses might interact and overlap (or not ) in any future proposal. #briefing #creativethinking #homeinspo #home #interiors #nimtim #feasibility #newclients #initialmeeting #architecture #spatialplanning #dontmoveimprove #insideoutside #ideas #fridayfeeling

Axo for a new project to a Victorian house. The concept is looking at pushing the kitchen out into the garden and the garden into the house - blurring the lines between inside and outside. #axo #dontmoveimprove #residentialarchitecture #home #exposedstructure #steel #homeinspo #concept #insideoutside #nimtim #feasibility #creativethinking #archisource #architectureonpaper #sketch #visual #axo_madness
