The term ‘Living Machines’ has appeared in the last decade, announcing a science to understand and harness the convergence between biology and technology. This banner includes projects that create new technologies inspired by nature (biomimetics), projects that engineer/orchestrate living matter (synthetic biology), and projects that intimately couple biological entities with manufactured components for new biohybrid systems.

This design for a one bedroom house in Brislington has just been submitted for planning approval. It works with the very tight constraints imposed by the site, sitting next to an existing house with a distinctive profile. The new dwelling would respect the amenity of its neighbour, while also creating a combined larger visual entity.
The living room faces north. However, high level windows allow sunlight to enter from the south, also promoting cross ventilation.

The brief called for a calm, neutral space adaptable to individual needs. The scheme places all the usual clinical paraphernalia in smooth, laminate casings with flush, fob-operated doors. When closed, the equipment does not intimidate or present a ligature risk to young patients. The skin of the casings doubles as a screen for a video projector. Patient packs containing toys and sensory materials are stored on shelves, which also house phone-charging points, data outlets and other services.
Following sign-off by stakeholders it is proposed to progress through detailed design to tender and building out early in 2020.

Proposals for a new structure to replace a dilapidated house on a site facing the sea at Sand Bay near Weston-super-Mare.
Views over the Bristol Channel are spectacular, especially from higher levels.
The client is keen to enjoy the outlook to a maximum, so living space is arranged on the top floor with a vaulted roof over. At the centre is a large roof lantern that also serves to drop light into a central staircase leading down to bedrooms.
The house is revealed to view through incisions in the land, as this massing study demonstrates.

This preliminary visualisation explores proposals to take down a rear kitchen extension (with a pitched roof and small windows) to replace with a new, wider structure with large windows and a roof lantern.
Walls would be constructed in timber frame with a rendered finish to keep construction thicknesses to a minimum. New windows and French doors would be powder coated aluminium.
