Jun 2020RIBA London Award Shortlist

The V&A Photography Centre has been shortlisted for a 2020 RIBA London Award. The project more than doubled the space available to display photography whilst reinstating the grandeur of three galleries in the Grade 1 listed building. Works to the fabric of the building and its systems significantly improved environmental performance and control allowing fragile photographic materials to be put on display for much longer periods. The Centre was opened by HRH Duchess of Cambridge on 10th October 2018 and received over 600,000 visitors in the first ten months. Read more about the project here

May 2020Belgian Planning First

We are delighted to have made a planning application for our first project in Belgium. The Hasselt Beguinage project, in collaboration with Antwerp-based Bovenbouw Architectuur, was won through the Flemish Bouwmeester’s Open Call in 2018. Commissioned by the Province of Limburg and the University of Hasselt, the project will provide a new home for the university’s architecture faculty and a major public space for the city. For more information, visit the project webpage.

Jan 2020Birmingham Smithfield Market Competition

We are delighted to announce that we are the winners of an international competition to design a new home for the historic Smithfield Markets in the heart of Birmingham. Our team includes Birmingham-based artist multiverse, Eastside Projects alongside, Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, Mark El-khatib, Charcoalblue, Price & Myers, WSP, Urban Space Management, Plan A Consultants and Max Fordham.

Smithfield has been the productive centre of markets and makers since the foundation of Birmingham and integral to its success as the ‘City of a Thousand Trades’. The new markets will be the centrepiece of the £1.5 billion Smithfield development which will deliver significant cultural and family leisure opportunities, a new public square, integrated public transport and more than 2,000 homes surrounding a public park.

We are looking forward to working with Lendlease, Birmingham City Council, local businesses and the wider community on such an important project for the city.
