Trinity Works feature in AJ!

Trinity Works, HAT's home, has been featured in Architects' Journal in an edition focusing on architects who design their own workspaces. It was a great opportunity for us to talk about the ethos of Trinity Works and our aims in developing the building, as well as reflect on our practice.

As well as some great photos of the building, AJ also produced a short film by Jim Stephenson, available to view here. Our project page for Trinity Works is here and the article is available to read in full here.

Smith Centre featured in Architecture Today

The Smith Centre was featured in the January edition of Architecture Today, as part of a focus on the first phase of projects in the ambitious reinvention of the Science Museum. It's great to see two such diverse types of event spaces commissioned by the same client (as the Smith Centre and Mary Duggan Architects' space, also pictured), as the article suggests:

"The masterplan vision enables the Science Museum to have the best of all worlds in order to truly welcome everyone, because with diverse projects linked by a 'golden thread' of vision, sustainability and consistency in standards, "we can choose inspiring differences in pace, language and narratives for each space.""

Local lanes route project

We were thrilled to be selected to work with Our Colchester and our local business community to develop wayfinding solutions for a route through the local lanes surrounding our offices. As well as suggesting design principles for identifying and promoting the route through the town centre we hope to develop an exciting narrative for visitors to the area to follow.

AJ Features Smith Centre First Look

We were delighted for the Architects' Journal to feature a First Look at the Science Museum Smith Centre this week, with a selection of drawings and photos made available from the project. Karen Livingstone, director of masterplan and estate for the Science Museum Group was also quoted as saying:

"The Science Museum found the perfect partner in HAT Projects to transform and integrate this elegant early 20th-century sorting office into the working life of the museum. The simplicity of the space today belies the complexity of the design, and the enormous thought and effort the architects have put into the details such as the acoustics, thermal efficiency, daylighting, thresholds, materials and finishes."

Further information on the Science Museum Smith Centre is here and the article is available to read here.

Eastern Promise

Hana has reviewed Gillian Darley's book "Excellent Essex" for Architecture Today this month, describing it as "an omnivorous miscellany: a gathering of vastly diverse anecdotes, observations and historical footnotes hung together in a delightfully token attempt at categorisation and order."

Smith Centre technical study

Tom spent some time talking through the Science Museum Smith Centre with Elizabeth Hopkirk of Building Design, who have featured a technical study of the project, available to view here.

"The route to this spectacular space is visually simple and intuitive but that is only thanks to months of patient design development by the architects, HAT Projects, and their team."
