Architecture Today Awards 2024 Shortlist 09.07.24

Three AHMM projects have been shortlisted for an Architecture Today 2024 Award. Designed to showcase, celebrate and share knowledge about buildings that have stood the test of time, the Architecture Today Awards only consider projects that have been in use from three or more years and that can demonstrate a strong track record for delivering on their environmental, functional, community and cultural ambitions.

Weston Street, shortlisted in the Residential category, is the product of a close collaboration between AHMM and developer Solidspace located in the heart of Bermondsey. The scheme provides eight interlocking, split level apartments and an open plan office space to the ground floor. Functionally, the building’s layout promotes a sense of community among residents while maintaining privacy. The double-height spaces at the heart of each apartment create a fluid central volume for social interaction, with bedrooms strategically placed for seclusion. Weston Street is an example of how architecture can foster social and economic regeneration, while also enhancing the quality and wellbeing of its users.

White Collar Factory, shortlisted in the Workplace category, is a campus of six buildings at Old Street Yard, which includes offices, studios, incubator space, restaurants set around a new public realm courtyard, with a sixteen-storey tower topped by a 150m long rooftop running track. Together, these 27,200 sqm buildings create a new, more permeable section of the city that references the alleys and passageways of the historic urban grain. The culmination of an eight-year research project led by AHMM and Derwent London, White Collar Factory has proven to be a success with 80% of the office spaces pre-let prior to completion and the remaining 20% leased within three months after completion. The originality and scale of the project had a positive impact on the neighbourhood and created a new community by attracting a mix of tenants from tech, creative, advertising, engineering and banking sectors.

The North London Hospice, shortlisted in the Healthcare category, provides an uplifting base for the North London Hospice charity that incorporates a range of new services and encourages patients to drop in for a chat, join in creative therapies, undergo treatments or give respite to their carers. At the heart of the building, daycare and dining spaces lead onto a south facing courtyard designed in collaboration with BBUK Landscape. Completed in May 2012, the building fulfils the aspiration to increase the provision of palliative care in Enfield in a contemporary, beautiful and non-clinical environment and will eventually allow the hospice to reach three times as many members of the community who have a life-limiting or terminal illness.

The winners will be announced at the annual awards ceremony in November.
