On site at Gateway West

Gateway West, our new commercial building for Stanhope, is beginning to take shape, with construction well underway on site.

Gateway West is one of three new buildings being built on the Gateway Site in White City Place, completing a 6.8ha grouping of technology, media and education enterprises in the rapidly developing fin-tech and creative environment of the White City Opportunity Area.

The design has been planned to obtain a BREEAM Excellent rating and makes use of passive design principles to work towards a truly sustainable place of work.

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.

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