Carmelite Riverside shortlisted for AJ Retrofit Awards 2015

We are delighted that Carmelite Riverside has been shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards 2015.   Our sensitive re-development of the site preserves and restores the listed façade whilst replacing an outdated 1990’s intervention with a building which sympathetically responds to its environment whilst re-using the modern structure of the former building. Throughout we make thematic use of the original design, recreating its decorative motifs with new materials and fabrication techniques to make the basis for contemporary features, such as 3d ceramic tiles in the washrooms, ventilations grilles and rooftop cladding.
