What we build
Bere:architects carried out extensive repair and renovation work to this Grade One terrace of houses; London’s oldest surviving terrace which is owned by English Heritage. It was built before the Great Fire of London on land owned by a family that also had extensive property interests in the Holborn area; as such it is thought to represent early prototype housing for Georgian London.Read more
Years of neglect and extensive dry rot had caused major damage to one of the largest and finest Grade II listed houses in Notting Hill in West London. The French classical interiors had been divided into flats, and in returning the building to a single double-fronted house, bere:architects recreated the splendour of the original interiors, demonstrating a real empathy for historic buildings.Read more
Case study 296 is a ‘stepping stone’ towards our aim of producing an ecologically advanced Passivhaus refurbishment of a Listed London terrace house, combining many health benefits for the occupants with advanced low energy design.Read more
Our redesign of the Mansell Street entrance of Tower Gateway station in east London regenerated its facilities and reduced crime and antisocial behaviour. The site, formerly a derelict piece of land between a bust road, a multi-storey car park and an elevated railway line, was heavily used by the public despite the risk of crime.Read more
A new public staircase with intricately designed curved bowstring truss metal screens overhanging the north bank of the river at London Bridge, has been designed by bere:architects for the City of London in collaboration with Capita Bobrowski and Littlehampton Welding. Final stakeholder negotiations are underway with construction due to start in 2012.Read more
A low-energy retrofit of an old stone thatched cottage with new Passivhaus additions for a self-building client who is an expert in permaculture and intends to use the cottage, outbuildings, and nine acres of land to create a near self-sufficient life.
The project has planning permission and will be largely self-built during 2011 and 2012.
