Tucked within a historic shoe factory originally constructed in 1924, Studio McW has taken a light touch approach to create Earthrise Studio, a live-work space in East London for climate activists and filmmakers, Jack Harries and Alice Aedy.
True to Studio McW’s signature approach to craftsmanship and wellbeing, the office is finished with toxin-absorbing, matte clay walls and a custom black mild steel balustrade allows light to permeate the floor below. The project is designed to seamlessly balance rest and relaxation with the busy operations of Harries and Aedy’s media company, Earthrise.
This Edwardian terrace in Muswell Hill, London, has been expertly refurbished by Ben Ridley, Director at Architecture for London, to reduce energy requirements and create a comfortable, low energy house.
Triple glazing and improved airtightness and insulation of the building envelope, as well as a 172mm SIPS (6.77in) rear extension with highly insulated materials, have achieved a Passivhaus standard U-value of 0.15 or better (1.59 W/m2K). Further, natural materials like stone, timber and lime plaster were used throughout, and a Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery (MVHR) system was installed to provide pre-heated fresh air and filter the incoming air for a healthy indoor environment.
