Jon becomes an Architect Assessor for the Civic Trust Awards
Jon has added to his list of judging roles and this year becomes an Architect Assessor for the Civic Trust Awards.
The Civic Trust Awards are unique in their singular focus on rewarding projects that offer a positive cultural, social, economic or environmental benefit to their local communities. I am sure this year the bar will be raised again with entries showcasing the very best in the built environment throughout Europe.
We have completed our refurbishment of the prominent 1970s building at 60 Charlotte Street, which has mixed the refinement of its Fitzrovia surroundings with the rawness of the original concrete structure.
We have completely transformed the existing entrance, doubling the size of the reception and creating a much better visual connection with the street. The office floors have been stripped back to their frames and now the original structure, as well as modifications made over the years, is on show. Exposed services help to celebrate the structure and retain a sense of height and space.
We have completed works at 1 Cavendish Place on Regent Street, where the new reception space has drawn inspiration from its context of classic materials including bronze, terrazzo, and oak. This creates a bright and welcoming contemporary space with a quality, high-end feel.
The entrance canopy has had a new lighting feature integrated to improve street presence and visibility from Regent Street. A phased programme of WC refurbishment has also upgraded the building.
