Duggan Morris Architects have submitted a revised proposals for Plot D at BBC Television Centre. The building, developed is part of the £400 million redevelopment by Stanhope at the historic home of the BBC, and being masterplanned by AHMM. The revised scheme - driven by a desire to redefine its construction and status as a landmark building within the masterplan - also reflects a vast body of research into the physical and historic context of site. The building responds to the iconic ‘doughnut’ through a sequence of strong vertical pilasters set at a three-meter grid allowing facades to curve whilst remaining faceted. At ground floor, a new public double-height colonnade provides a key link between Hammersmith Park and the Television Centre development whilst referencing the 1908 Franco-British Exhibition - or The White City - and the architectural motifs employed at the public fair.
Work on ‘The Loom’ has finally completed with the official opening of the café, run by Look Mum No Hands (LMNH). The project in Whitechapel by Duggan Morris Architects, for client Helical Bar, sees the refurbishment of over 100,000ft2 of office space, reception, new café, cycle stores and showers, as well as the relocation of the main entrance. The design seeks to explore and conserve the building’s long industrial history as a Grade II listed wool storage warehouse, whilst introducing carefully considered interventions that enable the building to meet the demands of modern commercial workspaces.

Duggan Morris Architects have been appointed by developer London Green Ltd. to produce architectural designs for the redevelopment of an exceptional riverside site in the London Borough of Hounslow, near to Kew Bridge. The proposed redevelopment represents an exciting opportunity to enhance the environmental quality and townscape of an underutilized site through the delivery of a high quality optimised supply of new housing in an extremely sought after location. The site is linked to the redevelopment of a former Police Station site in Brentford and this will provide for the relocation and reprovision of a new Arts Centre along with an affordable housing component.
