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
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.
