Welcome to the 2021 Autumn EZINE!
Welcome back to the Autumn Edition of the Architecture Unknown Ezine where you can get all your AU News update fixes.
It’s been an incredibly busy year with a host of exciting projects in the pipeline, while there’s been some exciting changes for our practice too. We have now moved our office to a mill in the creative hub of New Islington and have welcomed Gabriela to the team, who has just joined in a Part 2 role.
To all our friends, clients and casual readers, as we head into the dwindling light of Autumn we hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing summer and hope to see you over the coming months. Keep your eyes on our social media and website to follow the progress of the AU team.
Until next time.
Daniel AU Co-Director.

Rising Stars shines a spotlight on 15 young practitioners from practices across the UK. The judges were impressed with our implementation of innovative methods of construction and co-creation with communities, practices which shape and unite us and steer every decision we make.

27 BROGDEN GROVE
Client: Lauri and Bradley
AU worked on an internal renovation and rear extension to this Edwardian end of terrace house in order to open up and extend the ground floor. The project’s core aim is to make this house fit for modern living and a possible future family home by providing a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living room at ground floor that is light filled and embraces the courtyard to the rear.
Magpie is our new version of the WikiHouse that is designed for community-self build projects. WikiHouse has always been about the intrepid and the bold looking to create a new vision for their spaces but Magpie further lowers the skill level required for engaging with your own building projects by reducing the amount of on-site construction time required. Utilising a “cassette system” whereby all the walls, roof and floor panels can be pre-assembled, insulated and lined away from the site Magpie streamlines the construction process and allows people of all ages and abilities to get even more involved with their build.
