Bespoke Handrail Extensions

310 Studio were comissioned to design a solution to the very low handrails of the original marble staircase within the Wellcome Collection’s beautiful 1932 Gallery building and were excited to receive a mock-up prototype from the fabricator this week. The design has been very carefully designed to avoid fixing through or damaging the existing marble staircase handrail and assumes a curved bronze and black metal pallete to sit comfortably with the existing materials.  

Small but Perfectly Formed

It would seem everyone is spending more time in their gardens! Here’s a rather nice garden room we’ve been working on, with beautiful blue tiles hand made by Granby Workshop in Liverpool.

The steep garden conundrum !

How do you establish a sense of connection between house and garden when the garden is on a rather extreme slope? By designing the garden first and letting that inform the internal spatial design! Such is the strategy at 310 studio’s extension and remodelling works to a handsome family home on Cranbrook Rd in North Bristol. Watch this space..

Assemble talk at Arnolfini

Arnolfini Exhibition – Still I Rise

There’s an interesting exhibition on at the Arnolfini Gallery in Bristol documenting resistance movements in the context of gender politics + perspectives. The exhibition is intensely varied but one exhibit that stood out was self-taught architect, Alice Constance Austin, whose design for a city of 10,000, Llano del Rio, from c. 1916 are particularly interesting.

Austin considered the single-family house to be one of the greatest obstacles to improving the position of women in society and reimagined how both a dwelling and a city might be reshaped / reimagined in response to such. An interesting moment in a great exhibition – check it out if you can!
