Review of 2016

As is usual at this time of year we’ve been looking back at the last 12 months – which seem to have been busier, and gone by faster than ever! – and putting together some highlights in our review of 2016, which you can read here. These include some landmark planning permissions, award wins of which we’re very proud, and a look forward to some major projects reaching completion in the spring.

Civic Trust Awards 2017

Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre and 10 New Burlington Street / 1 New Burlington Place have both been announced as recipients of Civic Trust National Awards. The Civic Trust scheme was established in 1959 to recognise outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built environment – winners also exhibit strong sustainability credentials, a high level of inclusive design, and demonstrate a positive civic contribution. The Library at Willesden Green was also a Civic Trust Regional Finalist. The awards will be presented in March 2017.
 



 

New Barbican shop opens

New Barbican shop opens

The new Barbican Centre shop, AHMM’s latest intervention at the Barbican Arts Centre, is now open. The two-storey shop, which includes an accessible lift and glazed stair, replaces the existing advanced ticket sales desk near the Silk Street entrance, extending out onto a new mezzanine level but preserving views through and giving a sense of ‘having always been there’. Brass detailing and the continuation of the AHMM-designed carpet introduced as part of our earlier reinvention of the public spaces further unite the new addition with the existing building. Read an interview with Peter Morris about the project on the Barbican blog.
