Over the last decade, Jonathan Tuckey Design have been involved in a number of subtlety varied modifications to a former BBC film studio building located in Shepherds Bush, London. The latest intervention is the addition of a rooftop live / work space, which crowns the building whilst being carefully concealed from the street below.Save this picture!© Theo TennantThe project can be defined through several key constraints; The site was located immediately adjacent to a railway line, the construction method had to reflect the structural and logistical circumstances of a rooftop location and the project needed to take full advantage of several key views its elevated position granted.Save this picture!OverviewIn terms of the projects relationship to the railway, this meant careful consideration of the construction methodology, also detailed and intense negotiation with Network Rail. One consequence of this engagement was the wall nearest the track being constructed as a pre-fabricated element, then hoisted into place within a minimal timeframe.Save this picture!© Theo TennantThat the majority of the project was involved the addition of a new structure on top of an older existing building, this meant any new construction had to be specifically designed with load in mind. The penthouse was designed in such a way, with a light weight timber construction that could be easily moved and assembled. However, it is important to note, that the exterior treatment of the structure speaks to a much more permanent and weighty tectonic. This was achieved through the use of brick-slips and a generously proportioned cornice detail, linking this new part of the building with the existing.Save this picture!© Theo TennantLooking east from the new apartment, one can clearly view the verdant expanse of Holland Park peppered with its white stucco villas. To the south the view encompasses the Olympia Exhibition Centre, Fulham and beyond to the River Thames. Being in such a prominent situation on the roof, it was critical to take full advantage of these views.Save this picture!Proposed Fourth Floor PlanFundamental in driving the design was the client’s occupation as a film director and that the apartment was to act as a live / work unit. This meant that there was always a motive to include a cinematic quality to any framed views the new building could offer. The dramatic qualities of a rooftop location were also discussed with special reference to the opening shots of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita.Save this picture!© Theo TennantRunning counter to these ideas was the materially of the project. This focussed on a calmer more domestic language. The palette of materials was based around natural elements such as exposed wood hand made tiles and earthen plasters. The painted tones of the apartment reflect a calm space away from the busy streets of Shepherds Bush below. In keeping with this the idea of a rooftop garden was a strong theme throughout the development of the project. This eventually manifest in a series of hidden garden spaces, with an especially magical garden that can be enjoyed the most whilst sitting in the master ensuite bath tub!Save this picture!© Theo TennantProject gallerySee allShow lessZHA Wins Competition to Build Tower C at Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters BaseArchitecture NewsItaly to Rebuild the Colosseum with Retractable FloorArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Shepherd’s Bush, London, United KingdomLocation to be used only as a reference.

Magic Beans Welcome Andy Frasco For Talking Heads Cover In St. Louis [Video]

first_imgOn Thursday, Colorado’s own Magic Beans opened up their 2019 spring tour with a stop at The Bootleg at Atomic Cowboy in St. Louis, MO.Magic Beans opened up their show with a heavy-hitter combo of “As You Like It” into “Here On Out”, with bassist Chris Duffy and drummer Cody Wales locking into a tight-knit groove. Guitarist Scott Hachey and keyboardist Casey Russell traded off explosive solos before moving forward with “Always Cool”.Ahead of Thursday’s show, Magic Beans noticed that their close friend and musical compadre Andy Frasco was in town to join comedian Todd Glass for his stand-up set. Midway through their set, the four-piece rock powerhouse noticed that Frasco walked in the door of the venue and immediately invited him on stage for a cover of Talking Head‘s “Girlfriend Is Better”. Frasco started conducting the quartet, as he hopped about the stage with a microphone in hand. Moving back into their usual four-piece arrangement, Magic Beans rounded out their main frame with “Do Your Thing” and “Inventor”. Following a brief moment to catch their breaths, the band reemerged to offer up a two-song encore with a cover of Al Green‘s “Take Me To The River” and their own “Off Leash”.Scott Hachey shared his thoughts on the funky collaboration. He explains,You never know what’s going to happen when Andy Frasco gets on your stage, but you know it’s going to turn up.Watch Magic Beans cover Talking Heads’ “Girlfriend Is Better” with Andy Frasco below:Magic Beans ft.
