Front Page of Architecture Magazine

  • By Jonathan Banks

My photography of the award winning First Light Pavilion at Jodrell Bank currently features on the front cover of, and inside, the December/January 2023 issue of “Architecture Magazine”.

The First Light Pavilion was designed to tell the inspirational stories of Jodrell Bank’s world-leading contribution to science, heritage and culture.

The architecturally remarkable building was designed by Hassell Studios and engineered by Atelier One with the executive architects of JM Architect’s overlooking the entire project, Kier Construction building the large concrete dome and Armourcoat providing an insulated render that optimises the thermal performance of the building.

I was commissioned to photograph the new First Light Pavilion, to capture its stunning architecture and clever design within its location of the Jodrell Bank Observatory centre.

Architecture Magazine is Britain’s leading magazine for architectural products, technology, and trends. This editions has a wealth of industry talent including Freehaus, Fletcher Priest Architects, ARUP, DGN Studio, and HWKN Architecture.

Acoustic Refinement

  • By Jonathan Banks

My photography of the Minster Building in London is featured in this month’s “The Local Project” Magazine. The photos are part of an article about the value of “Acoustic Refinement” in commercial, hospitality and domestic spaces.

Inhered with a dynamic sense of refinement, Armourcoat Acoustic Plaster System balances effective sound absorption with a smooth and even finish. Installed exclusively by Bishop Master Finishes, the innovative product forms an effortless means of elevating acoustic solutions in commercial, hospitality and domestic spaces.

The system sees a recycled mineral wool-composite panel installed onto a standard taped and jointed ceiling, finished with a seamless layer of Armourcoat Acoustic plaster that allows sound to permeate through and be absorbed by the panel behind.

Published three times a year, The Local Project print periodical showcases the latest architecture and celebrates extraordinary design to an inspired community.

The Architectural Review Magazine

  • By Jonathan Banks

My photography is featured in this month’s “The Architectural Review” Magazine. The October edition is all about Energy and seeks to make visible the often-obscured links between buildings and the energy sources they are built from, and around.

In the middle of the pandemic, I was commissioned by Microsoft to capture Project Natick.

Project Natick is Microsoft’s research into the feasibility of an underwater datacentre, to determine whether it is logistically, environmentally, and economically practical. The Northern Isles datacentre was deployed 117 feet deep to the seafloor in spring 2018. For the next 2 years, team members tested and monitored the performance and reliability of the datacentre’s servers.

Part of Microsoft’s aim was to assess whether submerged datacentres use less energy than those on land. Servers generate heat while operating but work best at low temperatures, so land-based centres demand energy-guzzling cooling systems. The consistently cool underwater environment allowed Microsoft to opt for the sort of energy-efficient heat-exchange plumbing more normally found on submarines. Project Natick team selected the Orkney Islands for the Northern Isles deployment in part because the grid there is supplied 100% by wind and solar as well as experimental green energy technologies under development at the European Marine Energy Centre.

The Architectural Review is a monthly international architectural magazine. It has been published in London since 1896. Its articles cover the built environment – which includes landscape, building design, interior design and urbanism – as well as theory of these subjects.

The Epworth

  • By Jonathan Banks

London is regarded as Europe’s leading technology centre with over 3,000 new businesses (according to Start-up Genome Project) as well as Google’s largest office outside Silicon Valley. Although the Financial and Insurance sectors remain key drivers, the Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) sector has now overtaken these sectors in terms of office take-up in Central London.

Shoreditch and Tech City have become distinct as London’s new centre of creativity and innovation. The area serves as an incubator for start-ups in fintech, media, and technology, fashion, music and art industries.

The Epworth comprises a landmark 1930s Art Deco building beautifully modernised for the creative industries by award winning architects Buckley Gray Yeoman in 2018. The project involved the substantial refurbishment and reconstruction of three separate buildings to provide approximately 62,789 sq ft (5,833 sq m) of ‘best in class’ Grade A office accommodation arranged over lower ground, ground and six upper floors.

Earlier this year I was commissioned to photograph the iconic building. My brief was to capture how Buckley Gray Yeoman breathed new life into the building consolidating its mix of architectural styles whilst also remaining sensitive to the site’s prominent urban setting. 

The rear half of the building has been demolished and rebuilt as a new steel frame behind the beautifully retained Art Deco facade. Two upper partial floors have been removed and replaced by three new floors, with the 5th and 6th benefiting from substantial roof terraces. Along both City Road and Epworth Street, new double height voids have been formed to link the ground and lower ground. The office floor plates provide high quality space sympathetically restored with a sophisticated industrial aesthetic.
