We are pleased to share this article that Osel’s Richard Campanini was invited to write for the Bursar’s Review – The Independent Schools’ Bursars Association. The article is being published over two magazines and covers the eight different construction stages (based on the RIBA Plan of Work 2013) and how to successfully deliver a new extension, alterations or a new school building.

Crescent House – Completed

Works have been completed at Crescent House; a development which has provided 36 new self-contained 1,2 and 3 bedroom flats. The works, which are located within the Clapham Common Conservation Area, involved both new construction and sensitive refurbishment of the existing 1930’s office building. Osel were appointed by Galliard Homes Ltd. under a Design and Build Contract to produce the high quality, modern residential spaces.

Osel goes camping

We have just enjoyed an adventurous camping trip away in East Sussex. The weekend included a visit to Ditchling Museum of Art & Craft, a 2014 RIBA National Award winner, a long walk around Ditchling Beacon interrupted by rain and wind, and a campsite BBQ – Osel style!


Osel architecture are pleased to announce that Matt Weyham and Zeta Kachri joined the Board of Directors earlier this month, with both stepping up from Associate level to Director.

These changes to the Board are part of the planned evolution of the Practice and are coupled with the news that from the end of July, Tony Lynch is stepping down as a Director.

These new promotions will complement the drive, enthusiasm and focus of the Board moving forward. Tony will remain with the practice, as a consultant.
