When a workplace resembles an atelier . . .

I imagine people are happy to work
here, a street-facing creative space. 
I hope so anyway. The builders by
the way, by a trick of light, are sitting 
across the street. This is Wells Street,
more and more becoming its very own
mini-Holland.

I love the way Soho continues to reinvent itself.


This is the entrance to Soho Parish Primary School - an extension (with larger, particularly inventive and safe play areas) built by Erect Architecture that opened a few years ago. Walk down Great Windmill Street, turn right into Ham Yard, retrace your steps, cross Brewer Street and walk up Lexington Street to discover the glam that high quality design can contribute while preserving the original street pattern and the useful local shops that people living in or near the area rely on.
