The Rock covers Architecture Today

We are delighted that The Rock is on the cover of Architecture Today’s latest issue.

AT’s fifteen page feature on the project includes a discussion between our Director Jay Gort and the architect and academic Matthew Barac. They talk about eclectic architectural references, the relationship between sculptural expression and family life and responding to the unique qualities of an extraordinary site.

House & Garden awards The Rock ‘Project of the Year 2021’

Thank you House & Garden for awarding The Rock ‘Project of the Year 2021’! A unique project that came from a unique collaboration between client and the design and construction teams.

‘When House & Garden visited this project in the mountains on Canada’s west coast, the challenges of the site were obvious, not least because the rocky outcrop rose several metres from street level through a scattering of pine trees. The solution that architectural practice Gort Scott came up with – creating a journey through the house as you climb to the top storey – was as ingenious as it was elegant. With its acres of board-formed concrete and unabashed modernity, The Rock completely subverts the idea of a ski chalet, but it does so without fighting the mountain setting.’

The nine winners of this year’s awards are listed here.

Grand opening of St Hilda’s College development

Last week our founding directors Fiona Scott and Jay Gort were invited to speak at the grand opening of our transformative front of house project for St Hilda’s College Oxford. They were joined by project architects Chris Neve, Dominic Dudley and Joe Crawford and St Hilda’s students, tutors, staff, alumni and the Lord Mayor of Oxford - to celebrate the project, which was won through an invited design competition in 2016. Credit also goes to key team members Amy Wong and the competition team including Alan Worn and Andrew Tam.

The buildings were officially opened by four former Principals of St Hilda’s: Elizabeth Llewellyn-Smith (1990 - 2001); Lady English (2001 - 2007); Sheila Forbes (2007 - 2014) and Sir Gordon Duff (2014 - 2021). During their combined 30 years as Head of House, St Hilda’s has evolved through its buildings.

We are delighted to have helped the college realise their vision of creating a new point of arrival and a stronger relationship with river and the city beyond.

Gainsford Road shortlisted for the Waltham Forest Award

We are delighted that our Gainsford Road project has been shortlisted for Waltham Forest Awards.

The project provides 45 affordable one-bedroom homes for first-time buyers in Walthamstow, meeting the borough’s housing aspirations while making a lasting contribution to the area.
Designed to maximise opportunities for resident interaction, the entrance to the building is accessed from the street and is clearly marked by a gateway made of precast concrete elements

Alongside the awards given by the judging panel, the public will also be given the chance to vote their favourite project from the shortlist for the People’s Choice Award.

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