Norton Folgate shortlisted for a 2024 Brick Award 02.07.24

Norton Folgate has been shortlisted for a 2024 Brick Award in two categories, Urban Regeneration and Refurbishment.

Norton Folgate sits within the Elder Street Conservation Area and occupies a prominent position within The City Fringe between the City of London and Shoreditch. The masterplan employs a building-by-building approach to the retained existing buildings, utilising restoration, refurbishment, extension, remodelling and façade retention to breathe new life into the architecture. Sensitively designed new buildings have been introduced in a palette of materials, including brick which was selected for its robustness, quality and appropriateness to the Conservation Area’s character.

A comprehensive study of the local context undertaken at the planning application stage to understand and develop the material palettes for the buildings showed that there was a wide variety of brick tones in the locality. The respective bricks have all been selected to respond to their context, both retained and new, and also to work together across the development to form a coherent yet diverse new neighbourhood. Whilst some of the buildings have brick faced precast and some traditional brickwork, all share the principle of careful detailing to celebrate the brick used.

The proportion and scale of the brick facades has been carefully considered to reflect the warehouse heritage of the site but also to display the brick in the best possible way. The result of using the clay bricks is to instantly anchor the masterplan into the urban context, linking the City to Shoreditch, to provide a new frame of reference that encourages people to use and re-adopt the area.

Four architectural practices were brought together to diversify the architectural approach and style of Norton Folgate. AHMM was appointed as masterplanner and designed three buildings, Blossom Yard & Studios, Nicholls and Clarke, and Loom Court. Stanton Williams, Morris + Company, and DSDHA designed Edler Yard and Studios, 15 Norton Folgate, and 16 Blossom Street respectively, with East leading the public realm strategy.

The winners will be announced at the annual Brick Awards Ceremony in November.
