Our model London Stone is on display as part of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

It’s a recent project (for two houses, one shown here) that considers how we ‘hold the language’ of the architecture that we’re interested in but significantly reduce the embodied carbon of the construction choices. You can read about that strategy, ‘Mass & Air’ here.

The model was made with the generous support and expertise of The Stonemasonry Company.

The result is an architecture that is more authentic than it’s historic neighbours? Where they imitate stone with historic motifs built cheaply out of render, timber and masonry, now, with the economic extraction of stone we can deliver a similar language that is true to the material and its structure.
