The Loom, Whitechapel, a project for Helical Bar has been named the winner of the ‘Listed Building of the year: over £5 million’ category, in the AJ Retrofit Awards 2017.

The awards recognise and celebrate design, engineering and construction excellence that prolongs and improves the life of the built environment. With £500 billion likely to be spent over the next three decades on upgrading existing housing, commercial and industrial buildings, retrofits will play a significant part of the future of the construction industry.

Jury commented that ‘This project demonstrates a skilful and impressive ability to create modern, contemporary-feeling space while fully preserving the character of the existing.’
