Nice but what are the chances of this being a reality in Ealing? Isn't the borough packed with NIMBYs?

London hears Big Ben chimes again

The world famous Big Ben has chimed again after a seven week silence was imposed due to maintenance work.

The bell at Westminster Palace in central London was heard again on Monday at midday.

The works included the replacement of bearings that sound the chimes on the hour and every quarter of an hour.

The 13.5-tonne bell is named after Sir Benjamin Hall, the man who was Commissioner of Works when it was installed in 1859.

An alternative electric system kept the clock ticking while the work was taking place.

The restoration programme has been carried out prior to the clock's 150th anniversary in 2009.

The Renewal of St Martin-in-the-Fields is not just another building project but rather an inspiring endeavour that celebrates people

It is racing towards completion in early 2008, when it will enable a wide range of services to be provided for all who visit St Martin's, including some of the most vulnerable people, of all ages, who find themselves in distressed circumstances.

Eric Parry Architects' (EPA) response to the brief centres around a robust solution masterplan that connects each of the different elements of the site, creating and framing a space to nurture and sustain the community.
Their plan addresses the lack of clarity that was the result of nearly three centuries of organic development. EPA’s clean and classic design for the new public spaces and entrance foyer includes a striking glass pavilion set into Church Path. It will house a winding staircase and lift to take visitors to a public reception area, which includes the box office, gift shop, Brass- Rubbing Centre and an exhibition of the history and social involvement of the church. The pavilion itself is likely to become a wellknown landmark on the edge of Trafalgar Square, and the installation of a lift will contribute towards making St Martin’s fully accessible for the first time. The widened Church Path will be shaped by moving the John Nash railings closer to the church hence offering a better route for pedestrians in this busy area.

Gumuchdjian Architects expand inner city school

St Marylebone School is located in the heart of the Marylebone Conservation area, in close proximity to Grade 1 and Grade 2 listed buildings.

The small 'inner city' state school caters for 900 girls and had less than 5% of required outdoor space, no dedicated gym, no refectory and zero accessibility for the disabled.

Expansion through the purchase of neighbouring sites was restricted due to the location of the school in the heart of the most expensive real estate in the UK.

The proposal was therefore to locate the PE/Drama facility below the existing playground and to construct a new classroom block.

The underground facility opens onto a lower courtyard which provides daylight, and fresh air and dispels the typical negative impressions of below ground development.

Both buildings were designed as low energy buildings using conventional environmental systems.

Although primarily concerned with providing additional facilities the project re-orientates the campus and for the first time provides disabled access.

^ Oh... you know what will happen - local NIMBYs and English Heritage complain, the council refuses planning permission, developers re-apply with a 10 floor height reduction, council then approves it, English Heritage still not happy, developers apply with a further 5 storey height reduction, the building eventually goes ahead looking nothing like the original renderings.
