Being a gold winner celebrates Dollar Bay’s design process and product of planning, designing and constructing form; space and ambience, including functional, technical, social, and aesthetic considerations; and considerations given to material selection, technology, light and shadow.
Commenting on the win, Associate Partner and Project Leader Barbara Clarenz said,
“We are thrilled to receive this award. The project is a jewel in many respects. It allowed us to form a positive, collaborative relationship with our client, Mount Anvil and the rest of the design team, which we think is reflected in the quality of the final product. We created a new destination for the local community by making the most of the previously underused dockside area. And we are also proud of providing residents with unique and spacious homes that have some of the best views across London. For us as architects, being able to realise such an elegant form and shimmering façade, which are functional and contribute to the sustainable aspects of the building, is very satisfying.”
