Today we've unveiled our Arts Centre in Kampala, Uganda for 32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust. See the piece here in the Architects Journal.
Designed to utilise local techniques and handmade bricks, the proposed project will be made up of a campus of pavilions that integrate the landscape into the centre’s activities. It will become the new home for the not-for-profit organisation 32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust, which promotes African art and supports artists in residence from Uganda and across Africa. For more info about the trust visit: www.ugandanartstrust.org
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 32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust purchased the site for their new home, this is the first step towards realising their goal of a permanent space for the centre and its community of artists. We're absolutely thrilled here at Periscope and look forward to developing our initial ideas into a wonderful arts campus for the centre.
We enjoyed the last 'Breakfast with Arup' of 2015, some provocative thoughts on food and cities from Eike Sindlinger . You can see the video here including a special guest appearance by our very own Daniel Rea right at the end.Read More

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.
