      MWA Win Development Transformation of the Year

      19 October 2020

      We are delighted to announce that Bell Yard Apartments have won the Development Transformation of the Year award hosted by British Home Awards.

      Bell Yard Apartments is a 10,600 sqft office-to-residential conversion adjacent to the Royal Courts of Justice, London. The existing building was low in architectural merit and presented an exciting opportunity to be reimagined as something of much higher quality. The façade has been completely rebuilt using robust materials such as Portland stone and local stock brickwork. Deep reveals surround the windows and offer Juliette balconies with views across to the Royal Courts of Justice.

          Diorama Commences Developed Design

          24 August 2020

          Following recent granting of planning consent for the redevelopment of the historic Diorama Theatre next to Regent’s Park, developed design is underway with works targeted to commence early next year.

          This exciting project has been in the development since 2019 and will see the transformation of the historic theatre into a sustainable, adaptable and modern workspace.

          The historic rotunda has been reinvented as the centre of circulation and movement through the building looking to bring a strong identifiable theme that ties the building back to its origins. This space also presented a unique and exciting expression of the most important and human part of the original building – the auditorium. The use of a simple circular geometric plan which rises in section and brings into play the strong sculptural forms of the staircase and the suspended meeting room is both rational and exciting. The composition together fosters awareness with the original theatre its historical significance. The circular rooflight which illuminates the entire experience brings back daylight to the building once again.

                MWA Welcomes Staff Back to the Office

                12 August 2020

                MWA welcomes its staff back into the office after almost 5 months of working from home.

                In March, along with businesses all around the UK and across the world, we transitioned from office to home in line with government guidance. We adopted new ways of working as a team, devised new methods of communicating with clients both in the UK and abroad, virtually attended design meetings, planning meetings and site meetings and we responded in an adaptive and innovative manner with lots of new challenges.

                In preparation for bringing everyone back together, steps have been taken to manage and maintain workspace separation and to reduce risk in travel to and from work. Workstations have been re-organised to maintain social distance in accordance with government guidance. PPE has been purchased and new office protocols have been introduced. MWA is now covering the cost of all travel by hire bike to allow staff to commute to work without the need for public transport.

                It has been a difficult time for everyone and the industry, and the resilience of our team is highly commended. We look forward to working together in person once more.

                        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.

                                Phase 2 of One Welbeck Healthcare Facility Nears Completion

                                22 June 2020

                                Phase 2 of this specialist day surgery and outpatient diagnostics centre in Marylebone, London is nearing completion. Work has continued on site for the duration of Covid 19 lockdown, and has included extending the scope of works to incorporate temporary overflow facilities for the NHS.

                                Social distancing measures have been strictly adhered to both on site, and between the consultant team. All team meetings, both internal and external have occurred over video conference and MWA have carried out site visits and sample sign offs out of hours to ensure minimal risk.

                                Due for completion at the end of July, porcelain floors are now being laid and the reeded glass door for the consultation rooms are due to arrive on site. As a part of the sample review process, MWA requested a completed consultation room to be available for comment and approval prior to all rooms being completed – which will be available for the team to inspect in the coming days.

                                Once completed, this phase will include a Women’s Healthcare Centre and ENT (Ears Nose Throat) suite.

                                  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.

                                                MWA have prepared revised pre-planning proposals for the renovation and extension of this single family dwelling in Maida Vale. Being Grade II listed, proposals for a new lightweight rear extension have been carefully considered to enhance the existing building. Proposals include a full-refurbishment of the property including a mews house to the rear of the garden; a lightweight rear extension; a 2-storey side extension; lowering the front driveway; and lowering the lower ground floor to improve floor-to-ceiling heights.
