Queens Shortlisted for People's Choice Award for Architecture
7 Mar 2017
Queens Apartments, our project for Derwent London, has been shortlisted for Westminster City Council's inaugural People Choice Award for Architecture.
Westminster is home to some of the country’s most famous buildings and landmarks. To recognise, celebrate and promote architectural excellence across the city, Westminster City Council has launched the first People’s Choice Award. The award has been launched as part of a broader campaign to engage the public in a debate about what makes a great building, recognising cutting edge, high quality designs from the past 10 years.
An expert panel comprising of a mix of experienced architects, developers, councillors and planners has shortlisted 12 designs and now those who live, work and visit the city can vote for their favourite modern building. The panel considered each building’s use of materials, its purpose and impact on the space around it when making the final selection.
The shortlist is made up of buildings which serve all parts of the community with housing, office, retail, education and gallery space all put forward for the public to vote on.
