Nearly a thousand people visited The Building Centre for NLA's ‘Don't Move, Improve!’ day on Saturday, organised in conjunction with Time Out, RIBA London and The Building Centre.
Free architects' surgeries and seminars provided a wealth of inspiration, ideas and advice to people who were interested in improving and extending their homes.
Winning and shortlisted architects from NLA’s ‘Don’t Move, Improve!’ competition to find London’s best housing extension gave free advice and inspiration to anyone looking to take on their own home extension project.
Home improvement experts including David Littlefield, author of ‘HOME: Investing in Design’, architect Barbara Weiss, and winner of the ‘Don’t Move, Improve!’ competition Patrick Michell of Platform 5 Architects, also gave talks on the dos and don’ts of extending your home, getting through the planning process, and saving energy.
Furniture retailers, including Molteni&C Dada, Heal’s, LOMBOK and BoConcept also took part in the events, with interior design surgeries and discounts for visitors during the day.
The ‘Don’t Move, Improve!’ exhibition, highlighting the 32 shortlisted schemes is still on display at NLA until the end of the month.
