• homework

    Homework is an anthology of shedkm's many and varied housing projects; the inventive and often ground-breaking re-use and regeneration of redundant buildings, the first fully prefabricated apartments for the private sector and our current fascination, the development of new concepts for that most familiar of dwellings: the terraced house.


  • officework

    From speculative regeneration projects to a bespoke headquarters building, over the last decade shedkm has refined its imaginative and cost effective approach to creating high quality office environments. The featured projects have a common thread. None have benefited from lavish budgets but a great return has been realised by the thoughtful application of limited resources: high architecture with added value.


  • yellow book

    The first five years proved the point - from nothing to a sixteen strong studio - from no projects to several large completions and a book full of ongoing work. This celebratory publication gives a glimpse of the result - mainstream modern architecture built and in use - projects under design and construction - some dreams and now, many realities.

  • blue book

    The blue book celebrated shedkm's eighth year in practice by compiling a series of images of projects completed, plus a glimpse of what was to come. The book attempts to encapsulate visually the difficult to define ethos which drives the studio with its enthusiasm for modern architecture.


  • red book

    The red book completed the 3 colour set of shedkm mini monograph's and celebrated the studio?s successful programme of projects completed from 1998-2008 via a trilogy of projects of differing scales and purpose.
