23 May 40 Chancery Lane wins RIBA London Award 2017
We’re delighted with the news that our project at 40 Chancery Lane for Bennetts Associates and Derwent London has won a RIBA London Award 2017.
The judges’ report reads: “On a large corner site, an elegant Travertine-clad complex of connected office blocks draws on the urban character of the local area and retains an existing building on Took’s Court. A small, publicly-accessible courtyard reached from Chancery Lane provides a welcome landscaped space in this dense urban location.
The retained building allows a memory of the traditional ‘hole-in-the-wall’ character of the conservation area on the outside, while creating a narrow internal glazed street. Wall carvings by Susanna Heron in the covered entrance to the courtyard provide an attractive relief to the flank wall to the restaurant space. This is an extremely well-considered and resolved development.”
Congratulations to all those involved!
