Pumpkins at the Palace!

Mwahahaha… You’ve heard of the Great British Bake Off, but Wednesday night also saw the spine-chilling final of the Great Boundary Space Carve Off! The BS studio celebrated the spookiest season in hands-on fashion, with an evening of creepy craft, devilish design and deadly detailing. First, the operating table was prepared; and the curved cadavers [...]

Boundary Space and George Spencer Designs at DECOREX 2015

For the fourth year running, George Spencer Designs and Boundary Space shake hands to deliver yet another exciting stand for Decorex. With the general theme to explore the future of luxury, the show was once again held in the grounds of Syon House, which has proven to be the perfect backdrop for London’s premier design [...]

Mesmerizing Marrakech

We landed well after sunset at Marrakech Menara and while I had seen photos of the airport in daylight, the night view left me speechless. You wouldn’t have guessed, waiting in line at passport control surrounded by common faience work, what an amazing architectural space lies beyond. The envelope of the building consists of a [...]

The Revolutionary Printer: review of ‘William Blake: Apprentice and Master’

The beauty of an exhibition at the Ashmolean is that it’s guaranteed to be on a manageable scale, seeing as they only have three large rooms for their temporary exhibition space. This must surely have presented some difficulties though when it came to planning their current show on William Blake: how can you possibly contain [...]

The Architecture of Protest at the V&A’s ‘Disobedient Objects’

I visited the V&A ‘Disobedient Objects‘ on its last, oversubscribed last day at the beginning of this month, expecting to see plenty of makeshift gas masks, defaced walls and posters shouting righteous slogans. All of the above was in plentiful supply, but the real highlight of the exhibition for me was the unexpected role which architecture [...]

The Boundary Space Biscuit Experiment

When one of our interior designers returned from a  whirlwind weekend in Brussels last Monday, she was laden with edible treats to satisfy even the largest appetite. Probably most exciting though, was the array of speculoos biscuit products on offer: possibly one of few foods to come in both biscuit and spread form.  A week [...]

Review: 100 Years of British Modern Architecture at the Royal Academy

You might have visited the Royal Academy this winter for one of their major retrospectives: the revelatory Giovanni Battista Moroni exhibition, controversial Allen Jones or iconic contemporary artist Anselm Kiefer, but did you catch the short and sweet display of British modern architecture? ’100 Buildings for 100 Years: Views of British Architecture since 1914′ was [...]

Here are 5 of our favourites: Sensory Sky by Dornbracht The exhibit most hotly anticipated by the Boundary Space team, Dornbracht’s Sensory Sky rain shower aims to “stimulate all the senses”.

Inside View: Lloyds of London

Last week Boundary Space gained access to one of the most famous City buildings, a skyscraper whose towering status has endured since its unveiling, despite the fact that it has long been overtaken in physical stature by its peers. Lloyds of London in its current manifestation was built in 1986 and confirmed architect Richard Rogers’ [...]

Review: Anarchy and Beauty: William Morris and his Legacy, at the National Portrait Gallery, London

This week I visited the National Portrait Gallery’s William Morris spectacular: Anarchy and Beauty: William Morris and his Legacy.  The exhibition successfully displays Morris’s own unique and extensive talents (textile designer, poet, novelist, translator, social activist, Pre-Raphaelite associate, publisher), whilst equally revealing how he informed and inspired the artistic practices of successive generations and of [...]
