The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London.

Established Architectural practice Hopkins Architects are based in North London, and completed this total refurbishment of the original venue for the 1948 Olympic cycling events in Herne Hill, South London. The design of the pavilion features a timber structure above, utilising 6 of the original decorative cast iron columns from the 1890’s structure to hold it up. The scheme provides a new kitchen and servery, changing rooms, toilets, and a large club room that has views of the track beyond. The stepped terrace provides numerous seating opportunities for race spectators. The project also provides a fabric-roofed space behind which provides all-year weather protection.

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London.

A new-build housing scheme containing 116 private residences and 28 affordable homes. The architect created a clear sense of place with the massing of the structure and enhanced the street by providing amenities for the local population at street level. The scheme features landscaped, communal courtyards, and is carefully orientated to maximise sun penetration, achieving a situation where no living spaces have a purely northerly outlook. All apartments have a large balcony or terrace. The choice of materials creates dialogue with the history of the area, consisting of brick and adjustable metal panels, with cedar boarding adding warmth.
