Creating welcoming spaces...
When planning spaces, our goal is to create a warm and inviting atmosphere from the first step over the threshold. Check out this welcoming and tranquil entrance hall! 🌿The strategic use of acoustic panelling not only enhances the aesthetics, but also embraces a sense of calmness. Step inside and feel the soothing ambiance wash over you.✨

Unveiling Hidden Treasures
Today we took a step into the past and discovered the hidden wonders of an old bank. Our first discovery was the bank's main vault which was located in the basement.
To open the heavy vault door we had to turn the wheels to release the bolts. Once inside our second discovery was a smaller safe which was probably used to store the bank's cash.
Our third discovery was found in the loft space (this was my favourite). A fully working mechanical winding clock powered by weights and pulleys. What a find!
It’s now time to see if we can make new compliment old! If only all site visits were this exciting!
Which was your favourite discovery?

Every day’s a school day!
At JLK architects we believe research, educational visits and exposure to new ideas is the way to keep our designs fresh and relevant to our clients. This week we joined the Urban Design Group on their guided tour of Birmingham to see how a local city is addressing planning issues and mixing modern buildings with traditional ones.

The devil in in the detail!
Our conservation architects have been designing sympathetic additions to a residential Victorian building in Nottinghamshire. We have referenced the Victorian detailing in a contemporary way resulting in a harmonious addition.
A little lift!
Our team of architects gave a facelift to this 1930’s Nottinghamshire warehouse to make it fit for its new use as a retail and leisure venue. Using the existing structure and re-dressing the front elevation resulted in less waste materials going to landfill in comparison to creating a new building while still upgrading the kerb appeal of the existing building.
Fired up with ideas!
Our Nottingham architects visited the ‘Homebuilding and Renovating Show’ at the NEC this week to find inspiring and sustainable products for our Eco house clients. We are excited to share our finds!
