We recently worked with Ruth www.ruthmoilliet.com on two commissions for the NHS in Birmingham. A steep learning curve as per usual, and you know what its like, you always think oh well we’ll use this knowledge gained on the next job…it never works like that somehow.
I recently visited Venice with my family and the architecture blew me away. If you can I would recommend The Doges Palace and St Marcs Square. The view from the top of the Chiesa Della Salute, a Gondola ride on the grand canal, The Peggy Guggeheim Museum and eat lots of pizza and ice cream its fabulous.
I cant believe it, we won a chocolate pumpkin!! You should have seen the kids faces when this was delivered yesterday!
I got my old Bush radio fixed at the weekend. I can only listen to Radio 4 on long wave but i think that suits my seasonal Autumnal mood. log fires and hearty soup season here we come..
Just a reminder that the weather was lovely at the weekend in case you had forgotten already. The Hunters Lodge -Lyme Park, Stockport, Cheshire.
We saw this bulb recently and thought in its simplicity it added something to a space. We did consider what the addition of colour, by means of a shade or filter would do so we contacted the manufacturers and we shall see what the future brings…..suggestions/ sketches/ ideas on a postcard to – 10 green bottles etc etc
A couple of quick snaps of some recent work we completed in a hotel restaurant.
A glass memorial to influential Manchester architect Andy Robson has been unveiled near his last design – Spinningfields’ Left Bank.
Designed and manufactured by 10 Green Bottles. The illuminated artwork is designed to frame the Manchester city centre development and is etched with a specially-commissioned poem, ‘Architect’, by local poet Adam O’Riordan.
The memorial has been unveiled in Hardman Square, in Spinningfields, and will be moved to its permanent home by the Left Bank apartments when the Irwell footbridge is completed next summer.
Ken Knott, trustee of the Andy Robson Charitable Trust, said: “This event celebrates the inspirational contribution that Andy made to the renaissance of Manchester. With his unique and distinctive style, Andy is widely acknowledged as one of Manchester’s greatest talents.”
Robson was responsible for Henry Square in Ashton, the North Manchester Business Park and Cheadle Royal Hospital, as well as city centre developments including 201 Deansgate and the Observatory.
He died suddenly in 2003, aged 44.
