Gort Scott, in collaboration with Allies and Morrison, Mecanoo, DK-CM, Hargreaves Jones, BuroHappold, Systematica and HR&A, is one of five teams shortlisted in the competition to devise a masterplan for Oxford’s Begbroke Science Park - organised by Colander on behalf of Oxford University Development.

The winner will be announced at the end of February.

St Hilda’s College video out on Dezeen

Jim Stephenson’s video exploration of our riverside addition to St Hilda’s College in Oxford has been published on Dezeen. This significant and transformative development has created an intuitive spatial coherence with its existing landscape.

The Anniversary Building defines the college boundary, connecting the north and south sides for the first time in St Hilda’s 129-year history. The accompanying Riverside Pavilion provides a versatile space for events and lectures.

Dr. Georgina Paul, Acting Principal, St Hilda’s College says, “As a project, it’s given us enormous confidence as an institution, we suddenly feel we are living in architecture which accords with our vision of ourselves”.

Wallpaper* Design Awards 2022

To start the year, we are pleased to announce that The Rock has won Best Private House in the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2022.

The Rock is an exemplary new-build family home perched upon a distinctive rocky outcrop at the foothills of Whistler Mountain and at the edge of Alta Lake.

The Wallpaper* Design Awards celebrate innovative and thought-provoking design, and this year was judged by renowned names such as Simone Rocha, Sou Fujimoto and Doug Aitken.

Designer Simone Rocha said of the nominees that she “loved that everything nominated felt very unexpected” and “the things I enjoyed were all set within nature and the landscape”.

Waltham Forest Town Hall shortlisted for AJ Retrofit Awards

We are delighted that Waltham Forest Town Hall transformation project has been shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards in the category Listed Building £5M and over.

As part of our appointment as the civic building architects for the Town Hall Campus Masterplan, Gort Scott redesigned the Council workspace up to RIBA Stage 2 to holistically rethink the existing Town Hall and its relationship to a new Civic Building within the process of transformation of ways of working and delivering council services from a consolidated Town Hall Campus. We defined the brief, outline design, strategies and funding required for the redevelopment of their Grade 2 listed Town Hall, to suit the Council’s changing needs and objectives, including accommodating flexible working patterns.

Hawkins\Brown was appointed to develop the design in the later stages and deliver the project, further to their earlier successful refurbishment of Hackney Town Hall.

The AJ Retrofit Awards celebrate the design expertise behind the vital renewal and repurposing of existing buildings, slashing the industry’s carbon footprint in the process.
The winners will be announced in February 2022.
