New London Awards 2021: Five of our projects are shortlisted!
24 September 2021
We're delighted to be part of this year's New London Awards shortlist.
It's great to see that Max Fordham House, the ultra-low carbon Passivhaus home of our founder, is shortlisted for the special Environmental Prize. Being an exemplar of collaboration, innovation and solution-focused design, the building is designed so that the heat lost is no more than that generated by using the home.
Recognising the most sustainable projects in the capital, the Environmental Prize will be awarded to the scheme that shows design strategies that minimise environmental impact as well as an efficient use of materials, a low carbon footprint and innovation. Selected from submissions across all categories, successful projects will be exemplar in creating a more socially and environmentally sustainable net-zero city.
Another three of our projects are shortlisted for a New London Award in the BUILT category, which celebrates the projects that best create a sustainable, civilised and egalitarian city, that seek to improve the quality and standards of new design and respect London’s rich mix of old and new, that support the regeneration of its towns, and that strive to improve the usability of its streets and public spaces.
Agar Grove Phase 1b, part of a 493-home estate regeneration scheme in Camden, which is en route to become UK's largest Passivhaus development, was completed in July 2021 and consists of 57 social and market-rate Passivhaus homes.
The Makers Building, a flagship mixed-use regeneration scheme offering a new, innovative model for densification of inner-city sites and a sustainable way of funding new education facilities via residential development.
Ibstock Place School: Reimagining the grand tradition of the banqueting hall, the refectory at Ibstock Place School provides an uplifting space for the celebration of communal school life for pupils aged four to 18.
Waltham Forest Active Travel Centre has made the shortlist for the UNBUILT category, which recognises the best new projects yet to be completed in London from across sectors. These projects will exemplify a future for London that is sustainable, diverse and egalitarian.
The solar-powered Active Travel Centre at Walthamstow Central operates as a base for secure cycle parking, local authority cycle hire, bike repair and a hub for the borough’s Behaviour Change Unit.
Congratulations to all involved - our fingers are crossed!
