Double win at RIBA London Awards
Two of Muse Developments’ partnership projects have received accolades at the Royal Institute of British Architecture (RIBA) London regional award ceremony, held on Monday 20 May 2019.
The RIBA awards are regarded internationally as a mark of excellence, recognising the best architecture across the UK.
The first award was scooped by the second phase at Brentford Lock West, a residential-led development alongside the Grand Union Canal, which has created 157 new homes. The scheme is being delivered by Waterside Places, a joint venture between Muse and the Canal & River Trust, and was designed by Mae Architects. This is the fifth RIBA award the wider scheme has received.
Judges described the scheme as “a thoughtful evolution of phase one, housing a mixed tenure of accommodation” and “this is a high-quality work of architecture, landscaping and residential environment achieved for a modest budget”.
Also commended was Lambeth Civic Centre and refurbished Town Hall, a project delivered by Muse in partnership with Lambeth Council and designed by Cartwright Pickard Architects. It has delivered a brand new, 120,000 sq ft civic centre for the borough as well as sensitively restoring the Grade II Listed Town Hall to provide civic and community uses.
James Stockdale, senior development manager at Muse Developments, said: “We are extremely proud to have two of our London projects recognised by RIBA this year. We recognise the importance of excellent design and work closely with our partners and architects to deliver outstanding buildings which will stand the test of time and meaningfully contribute to their local communities.”
All the regional winners will now be put forward for the RIBA National Awards, with winners announced at a ceremony on Thursday 27 June 2019.
