LETI’s Non-Domestic Retrofit Guide

Gort Scott is excited to be contributing to LETI’s forthcoming non-domestic retrofit guide which follows on from previous industry-leading LETI guidance such as the Climate Emergency Design Guide and the Climate Emergency Retrofit Guide.

Driven by our long-standing retrofit commitment, we are giving our time to help lead a workgroup and we look forward to the positive impact the new guide will bring. We strongly advocate retrofit for its drastically reduced whole life carbon, and also its wider benefits such as reduced programmes and cost, reduced impact on communities and the natural environment, and the ongoing evolution of richer urban fabric.

LETI is a network of over 1,000 built environment professionals working together on a voluntary basis to put the UK on the path to a zero carbon future. We are pleased to be a part of collaborative industry change.

Open Call to Design Public Mural in Walthamstow

Hive Curates is seeking applications from artists with a connection to Walthamstow to design two large scale murals for the interior courtyard and exterior wall of Gort Scott & Pocket Living’s affordable home project at Forest Road.

The design team have opened the creation of these murals to the public with the intention of cultivating designs which celebrate the creativity and innovation central to Walthamstow’s culture. Dynamic compositions which act as a mirror to the heritage and stories of the area and positively connect local communities are anticipated.

Hive Curates is a North London based art organisation which provides workspace for artists and specialises in arts and placemaking.

Gort Scott Gets Ready for Open City Accelerate

Gort Scott is proud to be supporting Open City Accelerate in 2023. In its ten year history Accelerate has established a programme which supports 16-18 year olds interested in architecture with a series of workshops, in-depth university application guidance, and mentoring from an established London-based architecture practice.

This year, Gort Scott will be taking on two Accelerate students for three days of in-practice mentoring. Emily Temperton, Fraser Leach-Smith, and Kleovoulos Aristarchou have volunteered their time to the programme and have teamed up to devise an in depth structure for the placement which aims to help students feel ready for their Part 1 studies.
