STANLEY 8m 26′

I’m doing a survey at the moment for a refurb project in central for a friendly client. I love surveys. Partly because I enjoy the maths – and strangely because I like measuring stuff – but mainly because I am a really nosey person. This one is pretty old with some serious brickwork, big old windows and 3.3m ceilings. That’s big. But take another look at the arrangement and the changes of scale – the thick walls, the thin walls, the posts. But also see how compact the stairs are and the routes they take. Nice. Older buildings tend to follow a natural order of light – they look for edges and openings to the sky. This one has a central light well. It lights the stairs but also serves to bring light into the centre of the building. The sound of metal tape extending retracting swish swish.
