        • Female Frontier Awards 2020

          17 December 2020

          We are very pleased to announce that our female-led design team has been entered into the Female Frontier Awards 2020. This award recognises the skills and abilities of exceptional team working and individual skills of a female-led team. Lauren, Rawan, Paulina, Vanessa and Penny have worked collaboratively to deliver the OneWelbeck women's health clinic in Marylebone to an exemplary high standard, on-time and during one of the most testing times for the construction industry in recent history. The facility occupies all seven floors (plus basement) of a converted office building in Marylebone, with Phase 2 incorporating a Women’s Healthcare centre, and ENT (Ears Nose Throat) clinic.

          The team embraced collaboration to share knowledge and design aspirations, whilst developing strong relationships to overcome project and real-world complexities.

          Construction continued during the Covid-19 lockdown with measures that allowed the team to collaborate and monitor progress remotely. This was successful in ensuring the programme was delivered on time and allowed the project to incorporate temporary overflow facilities to help the NHS. We are very proud of our female-led design team and look forward to hearing the results next Spring.

          • Kings Cross Offices Progress on Site

            16 December 2020

            After a productive 2020 on site, we are only three months away from completion on our exciting new-build industrial-styled commercial office development located at the heart of the newly developed King’s Cross Quarter.

            Following recent topping out and works to make the building watertight, we enter the home stretch of this exciting project which has been with us since 2016. The project will see the transformation of an old warehouse formerly housing a mirror workshop into a sustainable, adaptable and modern workspace.

            We have developed a striking industrial aesthetic for the project. The materiality, internally and externally, strike a rich tone for the architecture which is enhanced through the use of a daylight filled atrium. Natural light floods the new development from second floor right down to the new basement level, creating exciting work spaces.

            In addition to these works we have collaborated with the New York based Urban Farm designers, Kono Designs, to integrate a radical indoor farming scheme within the atrium and office spaces. Employees will be encouraged to maintain and harvest crops such as melons, blueberries, passion fruit & lemon trees enhancing air quality for the well-being and micro-environment of occupants
