We’re delighted to announce four of our projects, The RHS Hilltop, the Dyson STEAM Building at Gresham’s School, Compton & Edrich Stands at Lord's Cricket Grounds and the Elizabeth Line Liverpool Street Station, and have been shortlisted in this year’s Architects’ Journal Awards 2022.
The RHS Hilltop has been shortlisted in the Civic category and is the UK’s first dedicated gardening science hub, commissioned by the Royal Horticultural Society for their Wisley site in Surrey. The ground-breaking new centre for horticultural science and learning showcases the RHS’s previously unseen scientific work and provides specialist facilities for ongoing research.
The Dyson STEAM Building at Gresham’s School is a new centre for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics education at Gresham’s School in Holt, Norfolk and has been shortlisted in the Education category. The contemporary cross-disciplinary hub will allow art and science to be taught side-by-side so pupils can explore, discover, and flourish with creativity, and see how the knowledge gained from one discipline can be used in a creative way in another.
The Compton & Edrich stands at Lord's Cricket Ground have been shortlisted in the Leisure category. The stands provide a range of seating and hospitality areas, new concourses and circulation areas overlooking the Nursery Ground, public realm and landscaping. The capacity of both stands has increased from 9,000 to 11,600 seats, with much of the original seating retained and reused on sustainability grounds.
The Elizabeth Line, Liverpool Street Station has been shortlisted in the Infrastructure and Transportation category. The design of Liverpool Street Station comprises two platform tunnels stretching 245m connecting Moorgate and Liverpool Street Stations as well as new ticket halls and escalator boxes to street level with connections to existing LUL and Network Rail services. Our appointment has taken the scheme through design stages, including safeguarding the design intent on behalf of the client.
