Clifton Cathedral

This was an enjoyable commission once again for Purcell UK to document the latest stage of works in the refurbishment of Clifton Cathedral, a fascinating piece of architecture produced in the 1970’s.

St Fagans National Museum of History

I had the pleasure of photographing the completed refurbishment of this well loved museum on the outskirts of Cardiff over the summer for Purcell UK Architects. The redevelopment of this Grade II listed museum building designed by Percy Thomas Partnership in 1975 is the latest stage of an extensive programme to transform the National Museum of Wales. The £30 million Making History project was awarded £11.5 million by the Heritage Lottery fund in 2012, Wales biggest ever HLF grant.

Bistrot Pierre, Birmingham

It was good to be involved in the launch of Bistrot Pierre’s latest restaurant in Birmingham earlier this year. Situated in a Grade II listed building on the city’s bustling canalside, the bistrot is located in Gas Street, close to The Mailbox, Birmingham’s most stylish shopping destination.
