Dow Jones Architects Tanners Hill living room | Remodelista

Tanners Hill is a recently completed restoration of a Grade II listed late 17th Century timber framed house in Deptford, South East London. The premises was the home of Whitcomb Cycles, founded in 1949, one of the last handmade steel bicycle frame builders in the UK until its closure in 2009. 
The project transforms this workshop into a home and private gallery. 

Dow Jones Architects is an award-winning practice based in London, with a reputation for producing well crafted, conceptually clear architecture. 

The work of the practice responds to place and context, both physical and cultural, in an original and contemporary way. We approach every project on its own terms and treat every commission as a conversation with our clients to which we bring our experience, not our preconceptions. 

Since formation in 2000, we have designed a wide-ranging body of work covering many aspects of the built environment, for clients from private, public, and commercial sectors, and have successfully built contemporary projects in many sensitive sites, including work to Listed Buildings.

Our restoration exposes the elements of the historic structure that are intact, and uses lime plaster and timber joinery as a neutral background.
The house is highly insulated by building an inner studwork frame within the existing timber structure. This allows the preservation of the whole and the revealing of the original fabric at opportune moments.

A new build house on the Isle of Wight. This new-build house in an orchard provides a family home for a writer and designer.
The timber-clad house is designed as a series of layered spaces that extend into and around the fruit trees, creating deep thresholds between spaces both inside and out. These deep thresholds provide a spatial generosity within the quiet form of the house.
