The Hithe has been named the Best Design in Europe, Middle East and Africa in the Fast Company Innovation by Design Awards 2022, and was a finalist in the Circular Design category
IF_DO's Thorpeness Beach House has been shortlisted for the Manser Medal – the Architects' Journal House of the Year
Property X-Change, a new platform led by the Mayor of London to discuss the future of London’s high streets, has hosted a conversation about The Hithe: what did it take to deliver it, and what impact will it have?
The conversation features IF_DO director Sarah Castle; Emily Berwyn from Meanwhile Space; Rumi Bose from Southwark Council; and Mark Darnell, a current tenant in one of The Hithe’s micro units.
"Hardy materials and beach-ready interiors make the residence a retreat worth holding on to for generations to come."
Our clients for the Thorpeness Beach House, Ben and Louisa Brown, were featured in the Sunday Times, talking about lazy summer days on the Suffolk coast and working with IF_DO on the design of their multigenerational home
"With a fresh approach to meanwhile use, IF_DO's workspace bolsters a community feeling the brunt of development in Rotherhithe... With modest means, it sets a high benchmark for whatever comes next."
"When [The Hithe by IF_DO] is no longer needed, it can be unbolted, unscrewed, and put together elsewhere."
