The Raking Monk bond is making an appearance at the Bethnal Green Mission Church.
First service at Bethnal Green Mission Church this last Sunday. The windows are still missing, and it was a little cold, but it was amazing to see the space fill with people and music.
Last night's GRR Xmas do - open fire outside a pub before dinner and after a long walk looking at lots of good architecture. Thanks to everyone at GRR, and looking forward to the next year!
Gatti Routh Rhodes is now a RIBA Chartered Practice. Now for those red signs!
Jon Astbury has written in the Architect's Journal about our set design for Martin Crimp's plays with an extensive Q&A with us about the design process.
'Set design and architecture often make for a fruitful combination: but what happens
when the playwright gives not even the slightest hint of where a performance is set, or
what appears in the space?'

Hazy sun and fantastic views on our trip to our new project in Suffolk, thanks to hurricane Ophelia.
It's over. A huge thank you to everyone at Guildhall and beyond who made this production of Martin Crimp's plays possible. We really enjoyed our collaboration with set designer Cecilia Carey, her extraordinary work can be found at ceciliacarey.com. More photos of the production can also be found on Guildhall's Facebook page.
Stained glass experiments - the coloured glass panels for the main church space at Bethnal Green Mission Church are being manufactured at the moment. Transparent resin joints, and a beautiful weave pattern by artist and illustrator Coralie Bickford-Smith. More of her fantastic work can be found at http://cb-smith.com/.
Our set & production design for Martin Crimp's play at the Barbican, staged by Guildhall School of Music and Drama, is slowly taking shape - more carpet here than we've ever used before...
