Here is our proposal for a flexible housing typology which can grow from a 1 bedroom house into a three bedroom house over time. The masterplan arrangement has been informed by the local vernacular (in the Lake District village of Burneside) as have the houses. Low dry stone walls create front gardens which open onto a shared landscape of allotment gardens and wilderness play - the houses are built using a repeatable CLT frame, and feature open hung staircases and pop-out bay windows which overlook the hills to the west.
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve won the RIBA Journal’s first Future Town Centre Competition in Dover. Our work focused on four place making themes; Resilience, Connection, ‘Local ness’ and Greening. Exploring the re-purposing of existing buildings, consolidation and mixing of uses and the naturalisation of the Dour our proposal looks to a future experiential town centre where people live, work and learn.
The Future Town Centre programme will feature in the July 2019 issue of the RIBA Journal.

Thank you to all those who came to see our proposals for Little Haldens in the Gomm Valley at the weekend, where we are working with Mae and Kjellander Sjöberg architects. The exhibition showed the illustrative masterplan, an overview of the key features of the project and the ecology, energy and landscape strategies.
The plans will now be finalised and drawn together in an outline planning application for submission to Wycombe District Council in December.

Periscope is working in collaboration with Mark Projects, Karakusevic Carson Architects, Duggan Morris Architects and Gort Scott Architects to develop a project which re-provides one of the largest leisure centres in the country while delivering hundreds of new homes. We are closely collaborating with Mark Projects on the design of the public spaces, courtyards and rehabilitated park.
Working with Karakusevic Carson Architects our project to build new homes in Enfield has been submitted for planning. The project redevelops one of the Council's depot sites creating 50 new family homes in a new landscape setting. Periscope are responsible for the landscape masterplan which includes informal streets, rain gardens, intimate parking courts for the homes as well as a large new meadow landscape connected by a new bridge over Salmon's Brook to the recently completed SUDS park (and on to the wider cycle quietway).

We're really excited to be developing our ideas for this residential project in York. The project will use a lattice structure of timber to form the main façade and roof and have a folded timber interior connecting inside to out.
This week we are starting on site this week with our conversion of a wonderful 16th century manor house in Sussex.
Work started on site this week on our conversion of a late Georgian terraced cottage in Stoke Newington. We're transforming a tired, structurally unsound, unloved building into a home for a growing family. The house will comprise a double height rear portion with an expressed butterfly roof and full height glazed screen which will seamlessly connect the landscape to internal spaces within the home.
We've been granted our first planning permission for the grade II listed Old Manor in Sussex. The project reveals the hidden ruins of the 16th century Manor House, creating a garden courtyard and a number of contemporary 'boxes' inserted within and around the ruins. Like a first love, our first planning permission is very special and we are very pleased to have our first very happy clients too.
