East Thames Headquarters Civic Trust Winner 2009

East Thames Headquarters received a commendation from the Civic Trust at their 2009 awards celebrations. The jury writes: ‘The scheme provides headquarters for one of London’s largest registered social landlords. Accommodating 650 staff, the building is sited amongst family housing. The clear glazing engages well with the street, and encourages local people to use the ground floor public cafe. The courtyard is attractive, and the scheme is highly energy efficient. A new church was designed as part of the scheme, which enhances local engagement. It is inspiring to see a social landlord investing in a high quality building.’
