Three LDA Design projects are in with a chance of scooping a 2019 New London Architecture (NLA) award.
West End Projects with Camden Council, Stratford Waterfront and Science Gallery London have all been shortlisted in the 2019 New London Architecture Awards. West End Projects has also been nominated for a Pineapple award – a new awards programme run by The Developer magazine – along with Battersea Power Station and Wembley Park.
The company’s work with Camden Council to transform key central London spaces, West End Projects, has been shortlisted in two categories: Wellbeing and Public Spaces.
As part of the project Whitfield Gardens, Princes Circus and Alfred Place will be transformed. Tottenham Court Road will also be dotted with pocket parks. All the designs aim to make the heart of the capital cleaner, greener and safer, boosting health and wellbeing for residents and workers.
Stratford Waterfront, which sets out to create a new common ground in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, is also in the running for a Public Spaces prize in the NLA Awards. The Allies & Morrison-led masterplan for Stratford Waterfront is also shortlisted in the Masterplan category.
This project will provide a new base for the London College of Fashion, BBC music recording studios, a new Victoria & Albert Museum outpost and a Sadler’s Wells theatre. The Allies & Morrison-led masterplan for Stratford Waterfront is also shortlisted in the Masterplan category.
LDA Design will create a lively, welcoming common ground with a distinct identity and a robust, post-industrial character. A series of terraces gently rise from the waterfront and intimate spaces will be defined by strong planting.
In the Culture category of the NLA Awards, Science Gallery London has been shortlisted. This new exhibition space blends science and art for a younger audience.
The project is a collaboration between LTS Architects, Kings College London, LDA Design and Science Gallery.
