This commission for the Pompidou Centre involved the photography of the stained glass windows by Marc Chagall in Tudeley Church and Chichester Cathedral, as well as their immediate interior and architectural context. The Pompidou Centre issued exacting specifications for the exposure and colour of the images of the stained glass, to ensure uniformity throughout the major exhibition, Chagall, The Emissary of Light Exhibition, included numerous windows across Europe.

The design to refurbish an existing Grade II Listed London Board School was completed by London-based Haverstock Architects. The scheme adds a new three-storey extension (a perforated Cor-Ten box on a brick plinth) and included essential restoration work to the listed building, preserving the character of the building and area, while updating the school to satisfy contemporary requirements. The architects had to contend with complex restraints, including party wall requirements, overlooking and rights of light, balancing the requirements for conservation with those of development and sustainable design.
