Gort Scott part of London Festival of Architecture 2024

Gort Scott is taking part of London Festival of Architecture 2024 on Thursday 20th June by welcoming curious LFA guests through the doors of our self-built, retrofitted Bermondsey studio.
Guests can browse drawings, samples, have a drink and engage with members of the studio.

Projects on show will focus on how buildings and spaces in cities evolve over time, and are creatively re-purposed and retrofitted. Projects include creative studios, life sciences, educational spaces, public realm and masterplans. Gort Scott has a natural affinity with retrofit: It sits well with our environmental concerns and love for thoughtful, contextual design. Guests can chat with our architects and urban designers - advocates for repurposing and reimagining existing buildings - to spark conversations around the environmental, commercial and social benefits of the retrofit approach within our city.

The evening will be led by members of Gort Scott’s Retrofit Heritage Knowledge Group & Environmental Action Group. Live and built projects will be on display including sketches and a material showcase.

Studio Late with Gort Scott
Thursday 20 June 2024
Drop-in between 18:00-20:00
Free event (no booking required)
Address: 55 Leroy Street, Bermondsey SE1 4SN


3 Mills Studios wins ‘Creative Retrofit 2024’ award

We are pleased to announce that our project 3 Mills Studios has won Creative Retrofit 2024 in The Pineapples Awards 2024.

The project involved the transformation of a series of buildings at 3 Mills Studios – For London Legacy Development Corporation.

Three Mills island is a unique remnant of historic London and is the city’s oldest still-surviving industrial centre. The new creative spaces will encourage the establishment of new businesses and employment opportunities by contributing to the economy of the Bromley-by-Bow area and providing a significant investment into the cultural sector, whilst supporting the growing TV and film industry in East London.

The project brings under-used heritage buildings back into life as new spaces, and greatly improves their environmental sustainability, climate resilience and economic viability. The judges commented on the real impact achieved for such a tight budget in this heritage setting and the ambition to consider the open space between the collection of buildings as a future public yard.

Unity Place receives a RIBA London Award 2024

We are delighted that Unity Place has picked up a RIBA London Award 2024. On Friday we attended the awards ceremony alongside Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Alison Brooks Architects, our collaborators on the 100% affordable housing scheme in Brent.

“This project shows how it is possible to provide high-quality, sustainable and affordable housing, embodying the local council’s commitment to elevating the standard of living for its social residents. Through community engagement, careful planning, selection of materials and, importantly, a willingness of the three architectural practices to share a common ambition, language, and goals, Unity Place has set a benchmark for future residential developments.” RIBA Regional Jury

Director Fiona Scott joining the judging panel for AJ Small Projects 2024

Director Fiona Scott has been invited to join the judging panel for AJ Small Projects 2024. Now in its 29th year, the awards aim to give much-deserved recognition to schemes realised at a more modest cost (contract value of £350,000 and under).

Architects all over the country are working on projects that may not make headlines but nevertheless provide a real indication of the depth of design talent across the UK today. All the projects entered for the award will be featured in the AJ Buildings Library with the 20 shortlisted projects published in the AJ in April 2024.

The panel of judges will select a winner after reviewing the shortlisted entries, due to be presented on Wednesday 1st May at Hawkins\Browns’s Clerkenwell office.

Many architects, through their work, create art and alter environments. A few, like Gort Scott, transform lives.
