It was a great week for my new Podcast in the Itunes Design Charts with the first episode. Thank you for listening. For Episode 2, I’ve chatted to the very lovely Laura Jane Clark. She is an Architect and TV Expert on BBC2’s Your Home Made Perfect amongst other shows such as Shed of the Year and Ugly House to Lovely House with George Clarke.
I learned a huge amount during the interview about renovating do’s and don’ts and how Laura took on an extremely unusual project for her first home after qualifying, which was an unused old underground public lavatory … I know, you’re probably thinking ” What ? ” because that was my reaction initially but after years of back and forth conversations with various London Councils she got the go ahead and turned it in to the most incredible, stunning dwelling.
I’m sharing some images here so you can see the before and after when she talks about it on the Podcast. This is pre renovation.
Amazing isn’t it ? I love the light streaming in through the ceiling windows.
She also took on a tenament in Glasgow and updated it beautifully – a few images here to use while we discuss it.
Last but not least, Here a few images too below that we talk about, of her current Georgian home.
But look, I don’t want to share everything now – have a listen to our chat and find out more about her career. There’s some fantastic information about her new website to encourage diversity in her industry Siren Sister – and a little exclusive too at the end.
You can also have a look at some projects on her company website Lamp Architects.
Hope you enjoy it and please do subscribe. I’ve got another interesting one next week that I think you will enjoy especially if you love colourful textiles and homeware. Very inspiring.
