Tenderstream members celebrate success at ceremony to recognise the best in the built environment

Tenderstream members are celebrating an impressive 13 wins and highly commended citations at the Civic Trust Awards, with the ceremony taking place on 22nd March at the Concorde Conference Centre in Altrincham. Over 350 architects, council leaders and built environment professionals from all over the world came together to celebrate outstanding achievements in architecture, urban design, planning, public realm and public art. Now celebrating its 65th year, the awards have become an important platform to recognise the very best in the built environment. 

Bokšto Skveras by Tenderstream member Studio Seilern Architects won two awards, including the Michael Middleton Special Award, which is presented as a memorial and tribute to the Civic Trust Awards founder, and recognises an outstanding restoration project or a new build within a conservation area. Bokšto Skveras breathes new life into a disused UNESCO world heritage site in Vilnius, with a transformation that introduces contemporary architectural ideas while celebrating the deep history of the buildings.

Tower Hamlets Town Hall by Tenderstream member Allford Hall Monaghan Morris also won two awards, including the Special Award for Reuse and Adaptation, which recognises an exceptional scheme to revitalise a site that would otherwise be demolished or left to decay. Encompassing the Grade II listed former Royal London Hospital building and thoughtfully integrating a new build extension, this project embodies the council’s vision for a healthy and flexible work environment that also provides accessible public services to the community. 

Tenderstream member Arup was the structural engineer and project manager for the award-winning Brent Cross South substation in London - designed by IF_DO - which challenges the conventional perception of utilitarian infrastructure by transforming a functional necessity into an exuberant piece of public art. Arup also worked as structural engineer on the The Guildhall complex project in York, which received a highly commended citation. Burrell Foley Fischer were the architects on the project, which transformed the historic building into a financially viable city landmark. 

Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings in Shropshire, West Midlands – designed by Tenderstream member Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios – received an award for its successful transformation of historic buildings into a vibrant, adaptable workspace and social enterprise hub.

Roundhouse Works received two awards, including the Special Award for Community Impact and Engagement. The new building, designed by Paddy Dillon Architects with Reed Watts Architects - with Tenderstream member Charcoalblue as acoustic engineer – is a creative hub for 18-30-year-olds that seamlessly integrates into the existing Roundhouse campus in Camden, London. Charcoalblue were theatre consultants on a highly-commended project, Brixton House, a dynamic theatre and cultural hub in London, designed by Foster Wilson Size.

Tenderstream member Alison Brooks Architects was highly commended for residential project Unity Place: Hornbill House, Kiwi House, and Turaco House in Brent, Greater London, which offers a harmonious blend of residential spaces and communal facilities. Meanwhile, Tenderstream member WilkinsonEyre received two highly commended citations, for the large-scale project to transform Battersea Power Station into a unique, mixed-use destination, and for the ambitious retrofit of the 1970s  London Road building at London South Bank University.
