Tapestry in King's Cross

Tapestry is a fifteen story multi-use building designed by Niall McLaughlin Architects in the heart of the King’s Cross regeneration area. It is a mix of public and private spaces, incorporating residential apartments, a multi-use games area, and a centralized car park. The building is dressed in a rich tapestry of ornament. The architecture has been inspired by the work of Owen Jones and his principles on decoration set out in The Grammar of Ornament.

Lucy Holmes' Sketchbook

Lucy Holmes' Sketchbook

As part of a generation that left college without touching a computer, perhaps I am different… There is a computer on my desk, but I mainly use it for e-mail. My key tools remain a box of pens/pencils and a roll of tracing paper. For me, sketching is free thinking. It doesn’t have to look great, it doesn’t have to be anything, it just becomes a visual stream of thoughts.
