                  OneWelbeck Shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards!

                  27 January 2021

                  We are proud to announce that OneWelbeck Health Centre has been shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards in the Health category. The AJ Retrofit Awards which is run by The Architects' Journal, celebrates the design expertise behind the vital renewal and repurposing of existing buildings.

Phase 1 & 2 of the development delivers 85,000 sqft over seven floors; providing centres for Digestive Health, Cardiology, Imaging, Diagnostics and Orthopaedics, Women’s Healthcare, an ENT suite and General Consulting spaces. Designed to be calm, personable and welcoming, the scheme focus’ on the patient experience, which has been carefully considered across all scales. From the spatial organisation and material palette, through to bespoke furniture, fabric selection and a curated collection of art; MWA offered an expansive design service with a high-attention to detail that allowed the project to transcend the stigma attached to clinical environments and elevate the client’s brand as they enter the UK market.

                          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.

                            16 December 2020

                            It is finally taking shape!

                            MWA’s 2012 commission to design a landmark family home in Hampstead overlooking the west of Hampstead Heath commenced on site in late 2019 with groundworks due for completion in late 2020. This exciting new-build development is set into the steep incline of Hampstead Hill in the historical Garden Suburb of Hampstead and sits amongst a rich architectural heritage alongside some of London’s finest modernist houses by notable architects including Richard Meier, Norman Foster and Ernö Goldfinger.

                            We have proposed a modern design solution for the home which is set over four floors, including a swimming pool, gymnasium and open-plan living spaces. We have utilised large expanses of glazing to take advantage of the scenic views over the Heath and to bring daylight deep into the rear of the plan. Planning Permission was initially granted by Camden in 2014 and since then, MWA have successfully obtained two further planning permissions, to suit the evolving requirements of the client. The project is due to complete in December 2021.

                            The project team is Robert Douge, Tori MacCabe, Tim Blackwell and Sam Wood.

                              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

                                  50 London Road Gains Planning Consent

                                  11 December 2020

                                  MWA’s proposal for 50 London Road has been granted planning permission by Hounslow Council.

                                  The site is located close to Brentford Town centre and has an important position mediating between the town centre and a largely residential area to the west. The design process involved two years of consultation with a number of stakeholders including Brentford Community Council.

                                  The application includes 69 residential units and 3,700 sqft of B1 office space, it was granted planning permission unanimously by committee. The scheme delivers a mixture of private and affordable housing, high quality architecture and increased green amenity space. The design was driven by an in-depth analysis of the local area. The proposal responds sensitively to the surrounding existing buildings with three separate blocks rising in height to 7 storeys. The colour palette of the façade draws inspiration from the Mulberry orchards that once occupied site.

                                            Each of the properties form part of an early Georgian terrace, constructed in 1720 by the lawyer-come-developer John Metcalfe and have a rich history of housing craftsmen, surveyors, and master builders. The original interiors to each of these buildings remain wholly intact, although they have suffered neglect during their use as offices during the late C20th. MWA are excited to return each of the buildings to their original use and reinstate the detail and craftsmanship they once boasted.

                                                MWA have commenced designs on a new residential project on Regent’s Park

                                                06 November 2020

                                                The exciting new project is the fourth John Nash designed Grade I listed property undertaken by the practice in the last twelve months and will build on the practices’ experience working with Heritage properties in The Crown Estate. Design proposals will involve the extensive refurbishment of a single family property on Regent's Park.

                                                Stage 02 will complete in early December and works are due to commence on site in Q2 2021. The house will sit alongside previous projects completed by MWA in the vicinity of Regent’s Park including previous developments on Hanover Terrace, Park Square East, Park Square West and Cumberland Terrace.

                                                  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.

                                                  Read more about the project here.
