The competition winning scheme to develop proposals for the Tybalds Estate near Great Ormond Street, Camden has now moved into the construction phase. This project aims to densify an existing post war estate as part of Camden’s programme to tackle the 20,000 people on the waiting list for new homes across the borough. The proposals seek to provide high quality homes and well designed new and improved open spaces which respond to the character and scale of the surrounding estate; predominantly post war, with remains of Victorian and Georgian terraced dwellings along the edges.
Duggan Morris Architects have submitted a planning application for a new office building in the heart of Clerkenwell/Shoreditch, for client Derwent London. The scheme proposes 130,000sqft of flexible workspace on a prominent corner plot on the City of London fringe. The genesis of this project lies in an admiration for the predominant building stock of Clerkenwell and its environs; the humble, but durable, warehouse building. This typology, a robust, brick clad building, replete with large, openable windows and just enough decoration and fine detailing makes up much of the street pattern and grain of this part of London.
Richmond Adult Community College has received a Bronze Plaque from the Richmond Society as part of its annual awards programme.
The Richmond Society awards programme has been in existence since 1977. The objective of the society is to seek to stimulate local interest in current conservation and development projects throughout Richmond, through formal acknowledgement and to encourage the implementation of such projects in the future.
Each year nominations are invited from members of the society for schemes completed during the previous twelve months and the committee carries out a final assessment of eligible projects for brass plaques or certificates of commendation.
The awards ceremony takes place in late September.
