The Mayor of London has resolved to approve the revised plans for Blossom Street. In September 2015 the Mayor called in the scheme after it was refused consent by Tower Hamlets Council, despite being recommended for approval by its own planning officers and Historic England. British Land and the design team, led by AHMM with Duggan Morris, DSDHA and Stanton Williams, amended the proposals in response to pre-application consultation and discussions with the Greater London Authority. The project will deliver a total of 350,000 square feet in seven buildings, including office space, 13 retail units and 40 apartments.
Within the Central Somers Town CIP planning application submission, Duggan Morris Architects have designed a series of mixed use residential buildings containing 69 residential units (afforable and market), also including a ground floor cafe and community hall, within the Central Somers Town area.
As we leave 2015 and look forward to a prosperous and challenging year ahead, we pause to reflect on the past twelve months; a pivotal and transitional year of growth and evolution for the practice. 2015 saw the practice grow to 50 staff (a 38% increase in capacity from the same point in 2014), which consequently saw the office expand with the refurbishment of an additional 1,500sqft of new space. The practice now functions over several floors from our base in Hackney, dedicated to research, making, crafting, hosting and dialogue. In addition during 2015, the practice made the transition to a host of BIM modelling software as we continue to improve the service we provide to our clients.
Richmond Adult Community College, by Duggan Morris Architects, is one of 58 winning projects for the 2016 Civic Trust Awards, Pro-Tem Awards and AABC Conservation Awards.
The Civic Trust Awards is the longest standing architectural & built environment awards scheme in Europe. Established in 1959, it recognises the very best in architecture, urban design, planning, landscape, public realm and public art. Successful projects make an outstanding contribution to the quality and appearance of the built environment and must be universally inclusive for all users, whilst offering a positive social, cultural, environmental or economic benefit to the local community.
Duggan Morris Architects have obtained planning permission for a restaurant pavilion designed as part of a holistic retirement community located in the grounds of the Wildernesse Estate in Sevenoaks. Developed with PegasusLife (client), Tibbalds, Purcell and Camlins, the project will support a wide range of accommodation and facilities including 8 new mews houses and 39 apartments within five free standing Villas, also designed by Duggan Morris.
Duggan Morris Architects has submitted a planning application for a mixed use building containing 42 residential units, with ground floor cafes and shops below, sitting at the southern tip of the Strand East masterplan, overlooking the tidal mill at Three Mills.
The wider masterplan will establish a new neighbourhood in East London. The project, commissioned by Vastint occupies a triangular brownfield site, flanked on two sides by tributary arms of the River Lea. The proposal will occupy the prominent end point of Sugar House Lane and join a close-knit sphere of ad-hoc buildings that cluster around the high banks of the waterways of the Lea, overlooking a new wide-open public space.
The Grade-I listed House Mill sits at the centre of this picturesque family of buildings and represents a point of departure for the design, from which a series of formal and material design investigations developed.
