WORK HOME. PLAY HOME
1 – 30 June 2021
David Mews Proposal by AVR London
For the London Festival of Architecture 2021, Anise Gallery and AVR London 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!

Screening & Talks Programme
6 David Mews is the recently acquired new home for AVR London and Anise Gallery. We have spent several months stripping back the 1800’s mews building, discovering its originality and form with each bit of plasterboard and ‘boxing in’ that is removed! This is however a temporary fix whilst we finalise and submit more ambitious and exciting plans from Tim Hall at Light Earth Designs.
The space will host a variety of events, talks and workshops as the former space in Shad Thames did during the 11 years we were there. We look forward to welcoming everyone over the coming months to our new ‘home’.
