Three KPF projects have been shortlisted in this year’s New London Awards. The St Thomas Street East Design Framework in London Bridge, plus Floral Court and Carriage Hall in Covent Garden, provide a snapshot of the diversity of KPF’s work in London, from relatively small-scale conversions to forward-thinking masterplans.
In the ‘Masterplans & Area Strategies’ category, St Thomas Street East Design Framework was led by KPF, with Renzo Piano Building Workshop and Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands for CIT, Sellar, Greystar and Columbia Threadneedle Investments. The Framework is an ambitious, joined-up vision for the physical, social and economic transformation of four high-profile sites close to London Bridge station.
KPF’s ongoing work for Capco in Covent Garden has also been recognised, with two projects that have grown out of a larger masterplan making the shortlist. Floral Court has been shortlisted in the ‘Mixed-Use’ category and Carriage Hall, now The Shop at Bluebird with retail environment by Daziel & Pow, has been shortlisted in the ‘Retail’ category.
The New London Awards are organised by the NLA and presented in association with the Mayor of London, Sadik Khan, to celebrate the very best architecture, planning and new development across the capital, making London a better place to live, work and play.
