“One gets the sense this has been a project with which Culley has enjoyed exploring his own architectural voice. This sense of the scheme’s ‘character’ is not something Culley casts only in anthropomorphic terms, describing it both as ‘animalistic’ and ‘like an animal sitting here’. The faceting of its façade does indeed seem to flex and pull the building’s form like sinews…
“It’s difficult to summarise the experience of this live-work project. It’s an architecture of narrative, movement and slippage of space but also of set-piece spatial moments and caught views out. As a project, it’s deceptive, having both a cragginess and softness to its architecture.” Rob Wilson, AJ Features Editor

Bouverie Mews: “Designing for light on an enclosed plot” Architects Journal Specifications: The Light Issue

Peter Culley’s description of ‘designing for light’ and other complex issues that arose in the development of the heavily constrained setting for the Bouverie Mews project.

“Spatial Affairs pursues an intellectually nimble practice by pushing project constraints toward broad ends that encompass everything from ‘interior landscapes’ to urban-scaled configurations… It does so in an effort to create layered material and historic conditions that always push back toward the landscape in some form or another. The approach has resulted in a string of under-the-radar but dramatically good-looking commissions that aim to create something greater—and more cohesive—than the typical, rigidly defined arenas of normative practice might allow.”
