Following site visits by a select panel of judges, Richmond Adult Community College has been shortlisted in a special further category in this year’s British Construction Industry Awards; the Low Carbon Construction Award PAN Category. The winners will be announced at the British Construction Awards Industry Awards on Wednesday 12th October at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
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.
Duggan Morris Architects have submitted a planning application for an exciting residential scheme containing 156 units, located to the south east of the emerging Strand East masterplan. The proposed scheme is envisaged as a collection of three distinct residential blocks that respond to their immediate context, with a western frontage to Sugar House Lane and pleasing views of the Three Mills Wall River towards the east. The proposal represents a second commission by the client Vastint, for whom Duggan Morris Architects submitted a planning application for plot MU5 in November 2015.
Loom House by Duggan Morris Architects for client Helical Bar has been shortlisted in two categories in this year’s Brick Awards; Best Commercial Building and Best Refurbishment Project.
The annual Brick Awards is the longest, most well established and most widely respected design and construction awards in the UK. The Awards recognizes excellence in BRICK AND BRICKWORK. Each year, hundreds of entries are submitted and 15 prestigious trophies and more than 100 certificates are issued to the successful projects.
The winners are announced at a ceremony on the Thursday 10th November 2016 at Hilton Park Lane, London.
Works have begun on the first phase of the retirement community designed by Duggan Morris Architects for developer PegasusLife in Sevenoaks, Kent. The ‘mews’ comprises two short terraces holding eight homes, which describe a new low-rise street at the northern edge of the estate’s eponymous Grade II listed Georgian mansion.
The houses will utilise the sloping site to create voluminous, light-filled, three-storey homes, with front doors opening onto the first floor level. The move presents a cottage-like scale to the street, ensuring the listed mansion remains the celebrated building mass of the site.
To be built with buff coloured brick, natural slate, timber and reconstituted stone, the terraces aim to establish a harmonious relationship with the 18th century Kentish Ragstone pile beside them.
