Work Home . Play Home

Jacquelyn Jubert Anise Gallery, architecture, Events, London Festival of Architecture

For the London Festival of Architecture 2021, AVR London and Anise Gallery  present Work Home. Play Home, a film exploring how we create workplaces that are optimised for, and care for, a work-life balance.

As we look towards a post-COVID world, architects will need to help people create a safer and more inclusive built environment, with homes and workplaces that care for physical and mental well-being, providing environments that support a symbiotic work/life balance.

Reflecting on this year’s theme ‘care‘ and using our recently acquired development 6 David Mews as a case study, Work Home. Play Home explores the process of designing workspaces that are optimised for, and care for, their inhabitants, with architect Tim Hall of Light Earth Designs LLP.

Further interrogating the environments in which we work, the film also features interviews with Sarah Wigglesworth who explores live/work infill scheme Stock Orchard Street, and Jerry Tate of Tate Harmer, amongst others, who question how when we care for our buildings, in turn, how do they care for us?

The film is available to watch below for the duration of the festival, 1 – 30 June 2021. We hope you enjoy it!
