Sketch study for Robert Adam's Imperial Staircase at Home House, London

N° 20 Portman Square is acknowledged as Robert Adam’s finest surviving London town house. The interior is conceived as a series of grand reception rooms, beginning with a typically austere hall, leading to one of the most breathtaking “tour de forces” in European architecture; Adam’s Imperial staircase, which rises through the entire height of the house to a glass dome, revealing the sky above. The plates below were created for a local charity, featuring a sketch of Robert Adam's stair by Timothy Crum.

milan design week

Our Project Architect, Giovanna, visited Milan for the Design Week 2018. She met with regular office collaborators, such as Salvatori, and explored new materials and technologies to keep FINE architecture design up to date and able to respond to every challenge. Together with new personal connections, she brought back this year’s FuoriSalone fresh point of view: designers and makers are symbiotic beings, without who good design cannot happen. We are looking forward to apply all these ideas to new projects!

Plans for the statue have been rejected by Westminster Council

The planning committee at Westminster council said it was favour 'in principle' of installing a memorial to Margaret Thatcher, but it rejected plans saying her representation in House of Lords robes did not reflect her achievement of becoming the UK's first female prime minister. Town hall chiefs insisted she be depicted carrying a handbag.

Join us next week at Westminster City Council for the decision on the Margaret Thatcher statue in Parliament Square

On January 23 at 6:30pm, councillors will vote on whether to back the new plans submitted for Baroness Thatcher in Parliament Square.

The original idea was blocked over fears it could be attacked and the new plans include a new granite plinth, designed by Timothy Crum of FINE architecture, to minimize these security fears. 

Join us at Room 3.1, 3rd Floor, 5 Strand, London WC2 5HR for the vote. Additional information about the committee meeting, including directions, here.
