Planning consultancy Turley Associates has won the New London Architecture (NLA) 2013 Award for Conservation for the former Queens Cinema development, Bishop’s Bridge Road, London.
Michael Lowndes, director at Turley Associates comments:
“We are delighted to have won the NLA award for conservation for the as yet unfinished project, which is scheduled for completion November 2014. Turley Associates provided planning advice and co ordinated the submission of a planning application for the redevelopment of the former Queen’s Cinema on behalf of Derwent London to turn the site from a vacant restaurant to a mix of uses comprising residential and retail and/or financial services spaces.”
The proposals retained the existing art deco façade, the only element of the existing building of notable architectural significance. The vision is to deliver 16 new residential apartments with a commercial element on the ground floor. In addition to the planning consultancy advice, Turley Associates provided an engagement strategy and was responsible for undertaking stakeholder and public consultation. Stiff & Trevillion prepared the high quality design and along with Turley Associates were supported by a team of technical experts.
The New London Architecture Awards recognise the very best in architecture, planning and development in the capital and the winners were announced on Thursday 11 July.
