LIKE SLATE SHINGLES ON A SCOTTISH BEACH..

... are what the colours of the tiles on this beautiful Folly by Assemble remind me of.  Handmade concrete are what they are - giving a scaly facade to this collaborative workplace building designed for artists in east London. Assemble, are a design & architecture collective based in London. At the heart of Assemble’s working practice is a belief in the importance of addressing the typical disconnection between the public and the process by which spaces are made.

Their projects have a common theme of adaptability to them.. they are lightweight, and look easily assembled and demountable. They also have an air of tangibility to them.. Its refreshing to see architecture look so playful and accessible - to see the points of assembly and build, in a profession that usually is so impenetrable and slick! 

Hurraayyy to Assemble and their assembly of beautiful things to make some very beautiful spaces.

Check out their past projects called 'Cineroleum' and 'Folly for a Flyover' for an insight into their nostalgic, convivial style ...
