Three projects shortlisted for New London Awards 2023
Three projects where Tibbalds has provided planning advice have been shortlisted across three categories for New London Awards 2023.
Harringay Warehouses has been shortlisted in the Mixed Use category.
The Harringay Warehouses are the first purpose-built warehouse living buildings to be submitted in Harringay Warehouse District, comprising 13 living units, cafe, work/ artist studio space and public realm improvements.
The aim is to secure a long-term sustainable economic future for the Warehouse sites that builds on the amenity being created and complements the unique character of the areas in which they are situated.
Tibbalds have been working as part of a multidisciplinary team of specialists on this project for more than 8 years to help sustain the District and the creative community who live and work within it. This has involved the production of an area wide framework in consultation with the Council and residents, which is envisaged will be used to guide and inform all future development in the area; the development of a series of projects and initiatives designed to address existing issues in the area and create new employment space, upgrade existing buildings and enhance the public realm. This work has helped pave the way for the development of a new purpose built warehouse living building- the first of its kind and the subject of the NLA nomination.
The submission has been made by Tibbalds as Planning consultant, working alongside Morris+Company (Architect), Campbell Casey (Landscape architect), Expedition (M&E / Sustainability Engineer), London Structures Lab (Structural Engineer) and Dakota (Project Manager). The client is Provewell Ltd.
James Riley Point has been shortlisted in the Retrofit category.
Tibbalds are providing Planning advice on the refurbishment of James Riley Point (JRP), reinventing this 23-storey vacant residential tower set within a triangular site placing it at the heart of its community.
The proposals will help to regenerate an area that has been earmarked for change through the provision of genuinely affordable homes, indoor sports provision, and flexible spaces that support a wide range of community activities.
The refurbishment approach brings the homes up to existing space and sustainability standards and provides for key facilities such as cycle parking which do not exist in the current block. The refurbished block is designed to Enerphit standards. James Riley Point is the first phase of the Carpenters Estate Masterplan that will ultimately deliver 2100 homes across this important site in the London Legacy Development area through a community led design approach.
We have worked alongside Proctor & Matthews Architects (Architect - community), ECD Architect, (architect - housing), LDA Design (Landscape Architect), Campbell Reith (EIA and engineering services), Mott MacDonald (Project Manager), PJA (Transport Consultant), make:good (engagement) and XCO2 (M&E / Sustainability Engineer).
The client is Populo Living Ltd. The project has planning consent and the team are working to enter into a contract to commence construction later this year.
8 Bleeding Heart Yard has been shortlisted in the Workplace category.
Tibbalds were planning consultant for this modern and dynamic workplace on Greville St, Farringdon. This workplace was designed by Groupwork for Seaforth Land Ltd.
The rich and expressive design increases the block’s floorspace and modernises the office space whilst at the same time providing affordable workspace for local jewellers. The remodelled external appearance is designed to make a positive contribution to the area and bring richness back to the street scene. The proposals have stripped back the existing 1980s office block with stepped access and wrapped it in a mesh facsimile of a former Victorian building on the site. New level access is provided to the rear of the building via Bleeding Heart Yard.
Project team included Goupwork (Architect), Atelier One (Structural engineer), Web Yates / Eight Versa (M&E / Sustainability Engineer), Avison Young (Project Manager), Quantum (Cost Consultant). The client is Seaforth Land.
The winners of the New London Awards 2023 will be announced at a special lunch at The Guildhall on Wednesday 15 November. More than 650 of the capital's leading decision-makers and professionals across development, design, planning and construction will be coming together to hear the announcement.
