• Congratulations To Tim On Becoming An Associate Director

    23 June 2021

    MWA are pleased to announce that Tim Blackwell has become an Associate Director.

    Tim joined MWA in 2011 after he qualified from University College Dublin in 2009 after previously studying at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and gained extensive educational, residential and commercial experience in Ireland. Tim became an Associate in 2016 and since then has played a key role in the management team at MWA leading many complex developments from inception to completion across all design stages.

    Landscaping and sustainable design are driving aspects of Tim’s approach to architecture having grown up in the Irish countryside. Through projects such as Kings Cross Road, he has delivered high quality and truly sustainable architecture which look to bring natural habitat back to our urban environment and improve the quality of our built environment internally and externally.

    Tim has worked across a wide range of sectors, leading a mix of large scale commercial, healthcare, heritage and residential projects including Grade I Listed Diorama, Grade II Listed Westminster House, Kings Cross Road, Hurlingham Road, Bartholomew Place, Fulham Care Home, Brentford Delivery Office, and William Court. We are delighted for Tim and anticipate his continued success here at MWA.

  • Eastcastle Street Gains Full Planning Permission!

    16 June 2021

    MWA’s proposals for 34-37 Eastcastle Street has been granted full planning permission by Westminster City Council. Set over 8 floors (including double basement), the new-build development proposes to rejuvenate the street front along Eastcastle Street in Fitzrovia and introduces more than 20,300 sqft of office space. The scheme delivers a variety of use-classes, high-quality architecture and increased green amenity space for the site. Driven by the historical local development in the East Marylebone Conservation Area, the proposal responds sensitively to the surrounding existing buildings and retains the language of the three separate facades. We are very pleased to announce that planning permission was secured under delegated powers with no objections.

  • King's Cross Offices Reaches Practical Completion

    16 June 2021

    After being approached in early 2016 to prepare proposals for a new-build office space in King’s Cross, MWA are happy to see another project reach practical completion. The project has been an important test case for MWA in the integration of architecture and the environment together, to deliver buildings which aid the well-being of their occupants and the wider urban context. With the current era of ‘working from home’ highlighting the need for nature and biodiversity in our lives, this project will see the implementation of a huge internal planting scheme for the benefit of its occupants. The end result will stand testament to the project having such a courageous and dedicated client team. The internal planting fit-out will complete in July.
