We were delighted to meet Linda Thiel, Director at White Arkitekter AB,
at London’s Clerkenwell Design Festival recently. White designed one of the main features of the three day event – ‘The Museum of Making’, a pavilion made of colourful Equitone cladding panels which, once assembled, created a venue celebrating Clerkenwell's rich history of craft and industry, and a meeting place for making, mending and knowledge exchange.
White have been shortlisted for the WIN Awards Workspace category
with their Stockholm headquarters for pharmaceutical company Octapharma and their hotel project, Yasuragi, made the  shortlist in our Hotels category in 2015, so we were keen to discover more about the projects Linda is working on and her recent move from Stockholm to the UK.
 The residential and public spaces categories are well under way with projects from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Sydney and the UK, you still have until the end of June to enter and Steven and Gemma are on hand to help with your submission.
We are thrilled that Lucy Tilley, Associate Director at Adjaye Associates and David Mikhail, Director of Mikhail Riches has joined the jury panel. Take a look at David’s fabulous East London Townhouse in this issue. For further information about our awards and details on how to enter,

LOFT 64, NETHERLANDS EVA ARCHITECTEN The original building was built as a workshop but was used as an office the last decade. It was established around 1880. Through the years there have been several renovations. We definitely wanted to get rid of the existing interior that was built in the 90’s.

MERRYDOWN, LONDON MCLAREN.EXCELL The house was originally the local Victorian girls school and latterly a single storey home that had been lived in by the same owner since the 1970s (the client’s mother). The original layout was almost monastic: one large room with a single corridor off it with cell-like bedrooms and bathrooms to one side. Our brief was to strip the building bare and produce a scheme which delivered three things... READ MORE HERE

LA CARTUJA, CONCISE INTERIOR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY La Chartreuse de la Lance, the Carthusian monastery where this project is set, is steeped in an unusual history which dates back to the 14th century and does indeed hold many a secret. It is not known exactly how many monks resided there, but one thing is certain: spiritual intensity was the guiding force. Carthusian monks were driven out on 26 March 1538 by the Reformation, but it is startling to... READ MORE HERE
