London RIBA Regional Award 2019

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris for Helical
Contract value: £115m
GIA: 43,445m²
Cost per m²: £2,647

Three distinct buildings form the bulk of this large development; one a small new build and the other two sizeable refurbishments, one with sideways and upward extensions. A new street and courtyard fronted with shops and restaurants open up vistas to the surrounding thoroughfares. The development contributes to the connectivity of a wider network of buildings, routes, yards and places being created in this neighbourhood. This is an excellent example of clever and inventive architecture adding both commercial and social value.
