Don’t Move, Improve! Winners present…Sun Rain Rooms

Friday 23 March 2018


NLA, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street WC1E 7BT

Anna Liu of Tonkin Liu architects presents Sun Rain Rooms - the inspiring overall winner of this year’s Don’t Move, Improve! competition.

Serving as a home for herself and Mike Tonkin, as well as a studio for the practice, the unique extension augments a Grade-II listed Georgian townhouse in Islington.

This free lunchtime talk will give insight into how they went about creating such an unusual structure, with its innovative use of timber and glass engineering and highly crafted interior.


See the winning projects!

Upcoming Design Surgeries in 2018 will take place on Saturday 28 April, Saturday 23 June, and Saturday 15 September. Subscribe here for updates and to download the Don't Move, Improve! 2018 Magazine

For ten years we have tracked the data of no shows at our events. So that we don’t deny places to those who really want to attend we do overbook events based on our experience. Our calculations are usually pretty accurate but sometimes we do have to turn away late comers.
