ALLIES AND MORRISON BUILDINGS 2019: LOOKING FORWARD

2019 will be a significant year for building completions at Allies and Morrison as a number of onsite projects, both large and small, reach completion this year.

The largest of these include a pair of tall buildings in London which resolve complex urban conditions at ground level: Two Fifty One in Elephant & Castle, a 41 storey residential tower with a neighbouring 7-storey commercial podium, and 100 Bishopsgate, a new development in the City which creates new walkable routes linking the area around Liverpool Street Station to St Mary Axe.

In education, the practice has a number of projects onsite. Those due to complete in 2019 range in scale from Imperial College’s new Biomedical Engineering Hub, a 20,000 sqm building with working laboratories to the construction of a 120 sqm pavilion at the John Bradfield Court, Darwin College, Cambridge. The forthcoming Van Hasselt Centre at Cranleigh School in Surrey will complete a trio of projects the practice has recently designed for leading secondary schools, including Dancy House, Marlborough College and King’s College School, Wimbledon.

In housing, large contextually responsive projects will start to see residents moving in. Phase 1 of Keybridge is a new development in Vauxhall which has a rich range of building types from a 4-storey townhouses to a 37-storey tower that will be the tallest brick building in Britain. At Lampton Road, the first (all affordable) phase of our project for Notting Hill Housing will be the beginning of a new compact neighbourhood alongside Lampton Park in the London Borough of Hounslow.

And this year will likely see the completion of three religious projects – a church, a synagogue and a mosque – the Westbourne Park Baptist Church, the South Hampstead Synagogue and the Juma’a Mosque at Msheireb Downtown Doha.
