Seven Projects Shortlisted for 2023 AJ Architecture Awards – Latest
Seven Elliott Wood projects have made the shortlist for the 2023 AJ Architecture Awards, across six categories. The awards, held annually, celebrate stand-out designs that excel in their use of space or sense of place, while also recognising the sustainability measures taken on each project.
We are proud to have contributed to these best-in-class designs that create a better society and places for people to work and live in. We look forward to the announcement of the winner at the AJ Architecture Awards ceremony on 22 November.
Magna Square - Shortlisted in the Mixed-use project category
The Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) designed mixed-use masterplan for Places for People includes four new buildings, seamlessly combining retail, leisure, and residential facilities. To accommodate the variety of uses, our team adopted a tailored structural framing strategy using RC frame on piled foundations across all four buildings. Magna Square acts as a catalyst for the wider generation of the local area.
Dockley Apartments - Shortlisted in the Housing Project (£20 million and over) category.
Dockley Apartments, designed by Studio Woodroffe Papa and Poggi Architecture for Dockley Limited, feature an undulating façade and staggered balconies that creating a sense of privacy for the new residents. To accommodate the irregular shape of the façade, our engineers used a hybrid concrete frame with a lightweight steel frame.
The Parcels Building – Shortlisted in the Refurb category
The renewal and extension of the 1950’s building into The Parcels Building, a new sustainable workplace by Duke Street Properties. The refurb project with Grafton Architects, saw the building recladded with a new limestone façade and a single-storey lightweight CLT and steel frame extension added to the structure.
Tower Hamlets Town Hall - Shortlisted in the Civic category
Once a Grade II listed London Hospital, now transformed into a sensational civic centre for London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Alongside architects AHMM, our team was involved in the complicated refurbishment of the existing building, along with the construction of a new, exposed RC-frame extension to create the landmark Tower Hamlets Town Hall.
One Portwall Square - Shortlisted in the Workplace category
Westminster Chapel - Shortlisted in the Community and Faith project category
We were involved in the restoration and strengthening of the 19th-century Westminster Chapel, ensuring it will continue to serve as a hub for both its congregation and the wider community. Collaborating with Scott Whitby Studio, the completed works increased visibility, accessibility, and functionality of the Grade II listed building.
Ivy Street - Shortlisted in the Mixed-use project category.
A mixed-use project for architect-developer Sam Jacob of Sam Jacob Studio. Built on the site of a former pub, of which the façade has been restored and retained, the building features private residence upstairs and a new home for the Ivy Street Family centre below.
