Thanks to all our guests who found time in their busy schedules to join us for a glass of something cold together with an amazing paella prepared on site by the guys from The Little Catering Co.

The afternoon was a big success with fellow consultants, clients, friends and family joining the festivities. The birthday cake was unveiled and had to be eaten quickly before our sugar figures began melting in the heat!!

Notwithstanding the preparation for the party it’s been a busy time in the office with new leads and commissions being worked on in Romsey, Northampton and Luton.

Finally big thanks go to Claire, Loretta and Kaeren for organising the day and ensuring it was such a hit.

Competition Entry

Amongst a busy schedule we managed to fit in time to submit an entry to the RIBA Competition for a Co-living Project in Forest Gate, London.

The intention was to have some fun with the project, so when faced with the brief, which asked us to select one object which represented the concept of Co-living, in true Forge Design Studio we thought of our stomachs!!

Competition 1

A well known brand of sweets seemed to perfectly encapsulate the idea of community, individuality and connectivity. Unfortunately, the judges were obviously not ready for this and we didn’t get short-listed. Too bad. However, it was a really enjoyable exercise and gave us the excuse to buy several bags of Revels to have with our coffee in the studio.

Competition 2

Attached are 2 of the 4 sheets that we submitted. We thought you might like to see them!
