"The [BP Showcase] structure features a mirrored façade which ‘creates a sense of low impact on the environment and invisibility by reflecting the surroundings and from the viewer’s perspective the adjacent buildings, clouds and sky."
Chicago Tribune, 2012
"The eight sponsor pavilions spread around the park seem an inviting addition rather than an intrusion, none more so than the whimsical mirrored face of the BP building."

"At first glance, it appeared to be a tricky project, mired in red tape, but, thanks to [AndArchitects] clever use of planning legislation, it was as swift and painless as they could have hoped."

“AND Architects has won a planning appeal for the Rivenhall Hotel refurbishment scheme in Essex largely built of light-weight steel structures manufactured off site. The practice says this will help minimize loss of revenue to the hotel during the work, and increase the use of low-energy renewable materials.
Practice founder Manuel Nogueira said: “Even with the room modules being a standard size and the same window module for the façade, we have randomly allocated them so the elevation is not compromised.”
“Starting in early 2009, lightweight steel-frame structures will be assembled off-site by Spaceover for the four-floor extension, which is designed by AND Architects and will have 100 bedrooms and a rooftop restaurant.”

“AND Architects were asked by Brentford Football Club to develop a scheme to provide covered seating to the Ealing Road stand as part of the ongoing Football Foundation funded redevelopment at Griffin Park.
The decision to use galvanized steel was taken both on aesthetic and practical grounds: to give a uniform appearance with the cladding whilst being durable and relatively low maintenance. The simplicity of the design and construction method helped deliver a project that was both on time and on budget.”
Architects' Journal, 2007
“British architecture’s concern for sustainability has long expanded beyond the obvious to a realization that green thinking must inform all aspects of building design.
The approach to building in the countryside brings special constraints. This is addressed, for instance, by AND Architects in a rural hotel, where it has adopted an approach that is not usually associated with such a location.”

“Many homes have a dark centre, or one room that’s particularly gloomy. Adding skylights can be a great way to bring in more light, and they come in all shapes and size, from circular to rectangular, with or without shutters.”
Grand Designs, 2006
“Walnut wooden floors sweep down from the spacious hallway to the extension and into a light-filled space. The feel is clean, airy and peaceful. By choosing a design with an inner courtyard, mostly glass walls and a roof dotted with sizeable skylights, the couple have managed to pull light into the heart of the extension.”

“Modern Comfort – Versatile Style. Installing a mezzanine – Not sure where to begin? We asked Rachel Nogueira of AND Architects to give us a few starting points…..”
Evening Standard, Homes and Property, 2005
“This Victorian house is a short-listed entry in this year’s Architects’ Journal Small Projects exhibition. Garden structures and ingenious ways to improve links between homes and their gardens are a theme among the domestic work in this year’s selection of entries.
The unique feature of the design is the way the structure stretches into the garden, with its roof supported by slender columns. Full height glass doors concertina open and fold back out of the way to open the house directly to the outside; timber flooring inside and out helps to blur the boundaries.”
Architects' Journal, 2004
“Previously the rooms onto the garden were dark and disjointed. Natural light and transparency between the rooms was maximized by creating a striking living space that opens the house out into the garden and onto the sky.”
