Fans of the ‘Beach bus’ designed for Brighton & Hove Buses by Harrison Agency and Materialise Interiors can now buy their very own 1:76 scale model from Corgi.

What a huge compliment that they chose that one to miniaturise!

We’ve just completed a brand new building next to The Level in Brighton for my regular and lovely client – Kings Colleges. It’s a large building and has been quite a project. A team of us have been working on this project over two and a half years. I worked closely with the client and wider team on the design, specification, implementation and installation. We are all so happy with the result.

It sits on the site of the former Buxton’s furniture store. The 5 storey building is comprised of a cafeteria, reception, outside areas, offices, resource centre, 17 classrooms, accommodation (62 bedrooms!) and student common rooms.

Lots has been going on for Real Patisserie recently.

Look out for their spacious new shop at 147 Church Road, Hove and the newly updated small but perfectly formed original first shop at 43 Trafalgar Street, Brighton. Both with fantastic in-house bakeries and such lovely staff.

It’s been great to be part of the team again….wishing you all the very best! Screen Shot 2017-06-18 at 18.18.28

It was a great award ceremony at The Dorchester hotel. With award entries from 41 countries, I was very flattered to be a finalist there.

There were two very worthy winners in my category as one was awarded overall winner 2015. Both Dutch companies. You really can’t beat Dutch design – well done winners!

Well, this is a wonderfully exciting week for Materialise Interiors!

It’s the 10th birthday of starting the business, after leaving the security of 10 years as a designer at The Body Shop’s head office.

On top of that great anniversary, this week is a bonkers one. The awards ceremony for the SBID International Design Awards at the Dorchester Hotel is later this week ….and because of the award nomination, I’m invited to the House Of Lords today for afternoon tea!

I will let you know how the week goes!

Work is underway on the ‘Science Bus’ for Mile Oak Primary School. I’m working on the design with the talented Adam Collier-Woods who’s ‘Big Green Bus’ conversion was featured in detail on Channel 4’s ‘Amazing Spaces’. We are converting the bus into a science discovery centre which will be permanently housed in the grounds of the school.

Samantha Heselden and the team at Brighton & Hove Buses have been pivotal in making this project happen for the school. There’s been lots of other generous benefactors including Martyn Industrials, Thermoserv, Shoreham Port Authority and Sunbury Fabrics. There’s more to come too including wonderful artwork by Jason McQuillen of ‘iownthisart’ and the kind help offered by parents of children at the school.

It’s such a brilliant project to be involved in and I’m proud to be part of the team!
