As an antidote to planning delays for no good reason, or other similarly frustrating issues of the day, I would highly recommend you go and see the Stanley Kubrick exhibition at the design museum. Some of my favourite things are the story boards produced by artists who worked alongside Kubrick. As well as beautiful models of space craft for 2001, details of technical innovation pre digital effects, incredible attention to detail everywhere. All very similar to the painstaking and sometimes frustrating process of architecture. A lot to inspire. The design museum appears to be bedding in and looking much better than I remembered from first visit. Thank you @gdbarton2012 #stanleykubrick #designmuseum #spaceodyssey #detaildetaildetail #process

So pleased parliament stood up to the bullying and lies and MPs took control last night. An added bonus to see this man getting a telling off from Caroline Lucas. #democracy #contemptuous #slouching #brexitlies

We have just secured permission for a two bed semi sunken house in Shepherd’s Bush. Only after cajoling and pushing the planners and threatening an appeal. This is a very discrete scheme but the conservation officer still argues it would have a detrimental effect on the adjacent conservation area- based on what is however unclear. 25 conditions applied which makes developing the site no easier. Good to get the result though- our fee depended on it. #planningpain #newhouse #basement #halflevels #shepherdsbush

New study which was branded the Oast House by the contractor. Tongue and groove wainscotting to the walls with light from a high level rooflight. Photo @richchivers #cambridge #study #douglasfir #samtisdall

The original house had a very tight 2m wide hallway- typical of a 1930’s semi. A key move was to combine the hall and front room, and move the front door. This really changes the sense of scale of the whole house on entering. Calm materials, Douglas fir floors, chemically blackened handrail, t&g panelling were used throughout. #cambridge #douglasfir #steel #blackandwhite #samtisdall

The house at Cambridge we have been working on is now complete. Nice to get closure for Christmas. A very calm interior and looking forward to getting some proper pics- my iPhone with dust in the lense doesn’t really do it! Thanks to Anna the client and CBC the main contractors. Just waiting on a garden now. #cedar #trimless #samtisdallarchitects #completion #frontextension

A snap from the front room of a completed job in Kensal Rise. Great colours by @emiliefournetinteriors and some nice art owned by the clients. The valchromat stair making itself known in the background. #valchromat #samtisdallarchitects #colours #parquet

Slim metal slat balustrade and frameless glass balustrade. The last three metal bars are tied together by thin round bars to stop them flexing too much and all fixings hidden below the floor and behind plaster. #metalwork #neatandtidy #samtisdallarchitects

We are finally complete at our Chelsea job. Thanks to @structure.workshop for designing a lovely slim plate metal stair, @produk for building it, @ramsesfrederickx for all his input and of course our clients for trusting us to deliver the project for them. #basement #metalstair #samtisdallarchitects

Oak clad walls and doors all DIY on top of a ultratop floor. Not perfect and requires adjustment as the oak moves but satisfying. #diy #joinery #samtisdallarchitects #worththewait #2yrs #sawdust

Trial run for balustrade at Baldock way, carefully fitted through slots in the treads, so no lipping to the edge of the stair. Lovely work by the contractor, joiner and metalworker. #steelbalustrade #douglas #samtisdallarchitects #cambridge

Cedar cladding rainscreen, with no copings, Velfac windows with carefully detailed reveals and simple interiors with Douglas Fir floors. Looking forward to seeing our Cambridge project finally come together after a lot of work from client, contractor and us too! #cedar #velfac #cambridge #samtisdallarchitects

Valchromat staircase balustrade up to a rooflight on the top floor at Kensal Rise. The top of the handrail still to be fitted. The contractors are getting there but it has been a very busy final week for clients and us and there is still more to be done. #valchromat #rooflight #plaster #almostthere #samtisdallarchitects

Kensal Rise project close to completion and contractor had a big clear out including my sign. Looking forward to seeing a new valchromat staircase which is emerging. #thrownout #valchromat #samtisdall

Is it a stud wall or a sculpture? All the interesting stuff gets hidden behind plasterboard. #studs #samtisdall #diy #basement
