Description:
Dalston CLR James Library and Hackney Archives combines the functions of two separate facilities; it is the largest library to open in Hackney for over a decade and one of the largest to open in the UK in 2012. Spread over four storeys the building includes a cafe, children's library, adult library, teen zone, study room, meeting rooms, a public archive area and an archival repository in the basement that meets the strict requirements of BS5454. Over 40,000 books are available as well as 10,000 CDs/DVDs and 15,000 historic photographs, maps and paintings of Hackney. There are 57 computer workstations and wireless internet available throughout. Over 1,200 people visited on the opening day on 28th February 2012 and over 400 members joined the library within the first week of opening. The library now has more than two and a half times more members than the library it replaces. The library was opened by Hackney Mayor Jules Pipe, renowned author Nick Hornby and local performance poet John Hegley. Earle Architects were appointed for the fit-out following success in a competitive bid and we developed initial designs by MUF Architecture/Art, taking proposals from RIBA Stage D to completion. The project is part of a flagship regeneration project that includes 553 new residential units, a major new public square and new London Overground station, Dalston Junction.

Description:
This grade II Listed building provides shelter for 19 of London's homeless population. Once two seperate dwellings the building was laterally converted in 1912, which resulted in a central corridor connecting the two properties; creating small dark spaces with poor ventilation. Earle Architects is Lead Consultant on a major refurbishment of the 5 storey building involving the total strip out and installation of building services, structural works and drainage works. The main focus of the project is to reconfigure the common parts on the ground and lower ground floors. The design process involved us working very closely with the hostel operator, building leaseholder, building owner and the conservation department of Lambeth council to develop robust proposals that meet the requirements of all interested parties. Listed building and planning consent was granted in November 2011. The reconfiguration of the ground and lower ground floors will provide a new reception, staff office spaces, medic room, kitchen, dining room and group therapy room. The underlying principle of the design is to open up small cellular rooms into open, inviting, naturally lit and naturally ventilated spaces to improve the wellbeing of the service users. Earle Architects has also designed bespoke joinery pieces including the staff desks, computer work stations, storage solutions, kitchen units and radiator covers to provide a common language through the various spaces. Work is due to be completed at the end of October 2012.

Description:
Earle Architects have been asked by Paul Cook & Armin Bienger to prepare designs for a reconfiguration and fit-out of two large apartments which occupy a section of the ground and first floors of Mounton House, a grade II* listed building in Chepstow, Wales, dating from 1911. The aim of this project is to sensitively adapt the property - which is one of the first concrete buildings in Wales - to the needs of the owners while maintaining and restoring the integrity of the building and its original features. The existing property has an entrance hall, kitchen, great room and drawing room on ground floor (with ornate plaster ceilings), while first floor has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The proposed alterations to ground floor will include the fit out of a new kitchen and adaptation of a window to allow access from the kitchen to the garden. Upstairs, a new state-of-the-art bathroom suite will be installed and crude sub-divisions from the 1990s will be removed. The project has been granted listed building and planning consent and works started on site in July 2012.

Description:
Earle Architects has prepared designs for a new Early Years Centre for children from birth to five years old - children within the Early Years Foundation Stage. The works will include the fit-out of three existing classrooms in the school building and a new building in the existing playground to contain a creche and classroom. A new outdoor toilet block will be provided to replace an existing facility being demolished to make way for the new classroom. The Early Years Centre will include its own outdoor play space, separate to the main playground and each classroom will have easy access to this space. The Centre will also have it's own dedicated street entrance - making use of an existing gate in the boundary wall. The proposals received planning consent in January 2012.
