98-100 De Beauvoir Road shortlisted for AJ Retrofit Awards 2023

February 2023

98-100 De Beauvoir Road has been shortlisted in the Workplace (£5m to £10m) category at the 2023 Architects' Journal Retrofit Awards.

This follows our project The Laszlo winning the Award in 2022 in the same category.

98-100 De Beauvoir Road is a pair of connected Edwardian industrial buildings that provide additional studio space for small businesses in Hackney’s De Beauvoir Town. They have been designed so that they can be let to a single occupant or on a floor-by-floor multi-let basis.

This low carbon retrofit scheme retains much of the fabric and embodied energy in the brickwork, timber floors, cast iron and concrete structures. Lasting qualities of building traditions have been transferred to contemporary architecture. And the craft-based low-tech building techniques employed indicate how elementary the construction of an office could be.
