    WIN Awards 2020 Finalist

    06 August 2020

    Phase I of OneWelbeck has been shortlisted for the World of Interior News (WIN) Awards in the Healthcare & Wellbeing category. The WIN Awards celebrate and showcase outstanding architecture and interior design from across the globe. One Welbeck is a specialist facility for minimally-invasive day surgery and outpatient diagnostics in central London. Occupying a converted office building, the first Phase of the development delivers 63,700 sqft over five floors, with a phased completion starting in late 2019.

    Designed to be calm, personable and welcoming, a palette of materials including timber panelling, perforated metallic privacy screens and soft furnishings create a sense of warmth and comfort. Ambient lighting softens the spaces and facilitates feelings of comfort and seclusion. Clinical requirements have been carefully balanced with the materials selected and all products and designs were carefully interrogated with the intention of creating a healthcare facility which feels comfortable, sophisticated and safe.

    We are looking forward to the awards ceremony in November.

        MWA Receives Unanimous Planning Consent for redevelopment of Grade I Listed Diorama Theatre

        20 July 2020

        MWA secures planning consent for the redevelopment of the historic Diorama Theatre including extensions at roof and basement levels and extensive reimagining of the interiors across all floors to restore the building to its original beauty.

        The Grade I listed property was designed and purpose built by John Nash and Agustus Charles Pugin as a diorama theatre in the early 19th Century. The technology had been developed by Louis Daguerre who is widely known as the father of modern photography.

        This is very exciting news for the MWA team that expended huge effort to ensure the proposals are innovative and a sympathetic and creative reuse of the historic building in Regent’s Park.

        The London Borough of Camden planning committee commended MWA’s balanced proposal to preserve and enhance the heritage of the building by reinstating the original diorama drum to deliver an exciting office environment with a central focus.

        The project was featured in a recent BBC Radio 4 podcast ‘Diorama Drama’ by Dr. Lance Dann about the history of Diorama Theatres across Europe. MWA will be working to deliver this exciting new development in 2021.

                  Planning Consent for Primrose Hill House

                  18 June 2020

                  MWA’s proposals to substantially extend, remodel and refurbish this large house in Primrose Hill have been consented by London Borough of Camden. The application had a recommendation for approval by the case officer and formal consent was granted during one of LBC’s first ‘virtual’ members briefing meetings earlier this month. Members briefings and indeed committees have now moved to a virtual platform in many London boroughs, ensuring planning and the construction industry are able to keep moving during these difficult times.

                  MWA’s planning consent substantially extends this unique building which at present consists of 3 residential flats. Proposals include the excavation of a new basement and double storey side extension.

                    Steel Framework Installed at King's Cross Offices

                    17 June 2020

                    Following recent completion of the basement structure, works have recently commenced on the installation of steelwork from ground to second floor at our new-build office development in Kings Cross. This exciting project has been in the development stage since 2016 and will see the transformation of an old industrial building formerly housing a mirror workshop into a sustainable, adaptable and modern workspace.

                    An extensive consultation process with local residents and the London Borough of Camden has been undertaken and will run for the duration of the construction process to keep the community informed of the progress of the development as works progress. MWA have recently teamed up with New York based firm urban farm designers, Kono Designs to integrate an urban garden within the scheme where employees will be encouraged to maintain and harvest crops such as bitter melon, blueberries & lemon trees among others enhancing the well-being and micro environment of occupants.

                      Spotlight On: Regent's Park Developments

                      10 June 2020

                      Over the past decade, MWA have been privileged to receive a number of excellent commissions for projects located on the Outer Circle of Regents Park. This area is a unique part of London in which we love to work in. This journal examines some of our projects and builds a picture of our extensive track record for delivering high quality, sensitive development. It is always a pleasure working with Heritage England and the local authority to gain listed building consent and with The Crown Estate to agree a Licence to undertake the works.

                      Our extensive experience allows our Client’s to undertake extensions, basements and internal reconfigurations that are sensitive and maintain the character of the heritage assets of Regent’s Park. John Nash shaped many of the Grade I listed townhouses in the park including properties on Hanover Terrace, Park Square East, Park Square West and Cumberland Terrace.

                      MWA completed the refurbishment of an 8,000sq ft property on Hanover Terrace which included remodelling of the lower ground floor and adjoining mews house to provide open plan kitchen and family areas, as well as dedicated leisure space with a gymnasium, cinema, steam room and swimming pool. MWA has also worked on multiple residential projects on Park Square East and Park Square West located in the South of the park. Currently, MWA are working on a commercial project on Park Square East to extend and convert the Diorama building into 42,400 sqft of high quality office space.

                      MWA’s experience in this part of London continues to grow as we look to preserve and enhance this historically important, highly prestigious corner of London.

                                    22 April 2020

                                    MWA has been preparing a First Thoughts document for this site located at Hanover Terrace, within the Regent's Park Conservation Area in the City of Westminster. The building was designed by John Nash in the early 1820s and the primary architectural interest of the building is derived from its external form and appearance as an element of a grand classically detailed set piece terrace.

                                    Proposals look to refurbish the property and include a rear extension to the main house, and a new basement level in the mews to accommodate a swimming pool and additional car parking.

                                          Elm Tree Road Family Home Submitted for Planning

                                          17 April 2020

                                          MWA have submitted a planning application to Westminster City Council for extensions at ground, first and second floor levels. The proposals allow for a full refurbishment of the existing property whilst also increasing the floor area through a series of extensions in line with a previously consented planning application. MWA have sought to rationalise the proposed extensions to sympathetically enhance the existing building. External landscaping works will ground the proposal to its context and unify the extensions.

                                            Work continues during COVID-19 lockdown, with strict social distancing rules being adhered to on site, and all meetings, site visits and sample sign offs being carried out using video conferencing facilities.
