Review of 2023 08.01.24

In the context of a challenging year in construction, and even more importantly in the wider world, our talented teams continue to design and support the delivery of excellent architecture in the UK, Europe, the United States, and beyond. We look to the future from a place of greater resilience at the end of our 34th year, while celebrating many achievements over the past 12 months. We have completed 11 buildings and places that are diverse in type and scale, won 15 national and international awards, and continued to work on more than 150 live projects, including more than 15 which have achieved planning permission. 

Indeed, being resilient is a feature of our Review of 2023. Three of our long-completed projects, White Collar Factory, Burntwood School, and the University of Amsterdam, received 'Test of Time' awards this year, a sign of the enduring impact of carefully considered, well-made architecture. Equally, it's been a great pleasure to see the rebirth of a much older yet robust building with the opening of Tower Hamlets Town Hall, the complex, painstaking remaking of one kind of public building - a former hospital - to create a new one fit for the future of one of London's most diverse boroughs. Our work on this project included a significant social value programme that recently won the Thornton Education Trust Inspiring Future Generations Award for Social Value. 

We're also looking forward to working on a broad range of new projects beyond London including in Sheffield, Manchester, and Newcastle, while enjoying acclaim for One New Park Square, our first project to be completed in Scotland.
