Following the submission for AJ Retrofit Awards, one of our most beloved projects – 2 Queen Anne’s Gate – has been shortlisted within the category of “Offices Under 2,000m2“.

The Architects Journal is “the undisputed home of British architecture and the professional’s guide to the most vibrant architectural culture in the world”, and to be shortlisted for the award has been a great pleasure for us.

2 Queen Anne’s Gate was a Grade II Listed building set in a prestigious location, which was then converted from a dated embassy office and subterranean residential units to high end office spaces incorporating meeting and presentation functions, which completed in February 2016.

As a historic site, conditions for development were stringent; the architects worked with several consultants to develop a brief that would respect existing traits characteristic of a period property whilst fulfilling the client’s needs. Our experienced teams worked closely with the client to ensure their exacting requirements were met. The official announcement for the winner is expected to be confirmed on 14th September 2016.
