Although it has been nearly 5 years since the completion of Carnaby Court in London, the accolades are still coming in. The latest award is for the Best Medium Sized Building in the Professional category at this year’s American Institute of Architects UK awards.
The award was presented to the architect, Jon Carter from Rolfe Judd at last night’s virtual award ceremony which celebrated the best buildings by UK architects completed in the last 5 years.
MEA were honoured to have provided Quantity Surveying services to this mixed-use development of retail, offices and residential fronting on Carnaby Street, Kingly Street and Fouberts Place involving complex enabling, substructure and party wall works.
Carnaby Court is a place to shop, a place to work, a place to eat and a place to live all within the context of the historic, vibrant heart of The Carnaby Estate in Soho. Inspiration for the street elevation design was taken from the historic use in Soho of glazed tiles. A combination of glazed French lava stone and brick were used to form a series of layered frames within each façade.
