UCL Student Centre

The Student Centre is built on what was the last piece of undeveloped land on Gordon Street, adjacent to the Bloomsbury Theatre. The sensitive site sits within the Bloomsbury Conservation Area and is adjacent to Grade I and II listed buildings. A collaborative approach was adopted for the project and the design team worked with planners and stakeholders. Consultations were carried out with a range of external stakeholders and neighbours, with plans strongly supported by the Design Council CABE and Historic England. The project has created a new civic realm in the Bloomsbury Campus, resolving circulation routes and refreshing the existing Japanese Garden as a tranquil urban courtyard. It has ten storeys offering 1,000 study spaces, a studen... More

Dolce Sitges

The brief comprised converting three contiguous rooms into a single room so that it could be used for large office meeting events or weddings while maintaining the option of using them separately. The fixed partitions that separated the central room from the adjacent rooms needed to be replaced by mobile phones that could allow their movement, while maintaining the current capacity if the Hotel required it.  Jump & Fly The appearance of the rooms is simple as the design do not want to distract the users of the event that going to take place. The aim was to design a naked box that the companies or wedding couples could dress up according to their needs, spicing the room up with their branding and display.  Jump & F... More

Project • By BIEN STUDIOPrivate Houses


This design posed a considerable challenge since the space contained some elements that already gave it a certain character. Eventually, the new arrangement took on a slightly different feel, which was achieved by using high-quality materials and accessories that filled the large high spaces of the house. This design utilizes and is defined by a palette of neutral subdued colours, earth tones, delicate shades of grey, natural wood and sandy colours, which contrast with amber glass and old gold brass. The monochromatic decor was infused with black details and surfaces. A painting by Grzegorz Worpus compliments the staircase perfectly.   Localization: Wielkopolska , POLANDArchitects: BIEN STUDIOArea: 250 m²Year: 2021Photographs: To... More

Halda Therapeutics

We were looking for something that was comparable in price to a standard 2x2 recessed fixture but with a modern linear light proportion to compliment the open office area where we couldn’t hang the traditional pendant lighting due to low ceiling heights. For a recessed linear, we did not want the look of the light being offset from the grid giving it an unbalanced look.   I loved the idea of the light replacing the grid and the seamless look of the GEMINI with no frame or profile edging. This fixture definitely met our expectations in cost, light output and efficiency. We opted for the center ceiling grid look that cuts thru the center of the fixture in this project, however for future projects I would go with the grid-less len... More

Kamimachi - Japanese noodle & restaurant -

This restaurant is located in the centre of Shanghai. The owner's vision is to spread Japanese noodle and food culture to China and the world, and as this is his first restaurant, he wanted the design to be Japanese. We thought about the Japanese style and the elements of the restaurant, and because it is located on the 2nd floor, we thought about the theme of "eating on a pier with a big roof". Caption Caption Caption To eat under the roof, under the eaves, is to be comfortable, By wrapping the layer of white wood as a louver, it gently wraps people, it gently wraps the space and it gently wraps the food. By creating a space under the eaves in the form of a roof, we have been able to create an atmosphere similar to that... More
