The Hammersmith Society today announced this year’s winners of its prestigious Environment Awards, presented by Cllr Mercy Umeh, Mayor of Hammersmith and Fulham, at its AGM on Thursday 9 June at the Dorsett Hotel, Shepherds Bush Green, W12.
Main Award: Dunnhumby Building, 184 Shepherds Bush Road, W6
A well-preserved industrial building, built in 1915-16, this has been given a new lease of life in its centennial year through a first-class refurbishment and an audacious extension by the creation of a vaulted glazed roof providing two additional storeys.
Architect: Roy Collado of Collado Collins Architects
Nancye Goulden Award: Bridget Joyce Square, White City Estate, W12
Optimization of an urban opportunity by introducing a landscaped space for people in place of cars. The paving over of Australia Road and the building of a landscaped planting area provides Sustainable Urban Drainage, a sump for excess rainwater and a large planted area with a snaking walkway.
Developer: London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham
Landscape Architects: Robert Bray Associates
Jane Mercer Award: 282-292 Goldhawk Road, W12
An unusually well crafted set of buildings that is an interesting re-interpretation of the semi-detached classical villa. Community representatives were involved in all stages including briefing, the selection of the architects and subsequent detail design development.
Developer: First Base
Architect: Pollard Thomas Edwards
Conservation Award: Barons Keep, A4 corner Gliddon Road, W14
A sensitively designed new roof extension to a 1920s’ mansion block. The sweeping curving eaves of the new projecting roof complement the existing house style and create a crisp skyline enhancement.
Developer: Barons Keep Property Company (London) Ltd
Architect: Original design by John McAslan
Notting Hill Housing Trust development on the corner of Hammersmith Grove and Goldhawk Road, W6, although a building of some merit lacks empathy with the site surroundings, particularly the frontage and electricity sub-station onto Goldhawk Road.
Godolphin and Latymer School Sports Hall, Iffley Road, W6, for the choice of brickwork which is out of context with its surroundings.
Carpetright site, at the corner of Goldhawk Road/Askew Road, W12, for the choice of brickwork, also out of context with its surroundings.
