Fountain Workshop Projects Pick up Multiple Awards

The Fountain Workshop is excited to share that several of our projects have been recognised for their notable contributions to the world of Architecture.

On 27th June, the Royal Institute of British Architects named Television Centre as a winner at the 2019 RIBA National Awards. Having already won a RIBA Regional Award earlier this year, Television Centre was put forward and subsequently selected as one of only a few new developments that has made a ‘significant contribution to Architecture’. In their justification for the award, RIBA said “Most notably [Television Centre includes] the circular mosaic lined Helios courtyard, complete with raised water feature…”

4 Pancras Square and Coal Drops Yard, which are both part of the King’s Cross development and overlook Pancras Square and Granary Square, respectively, were both also recognised by RIBA.

Similarly, on 3rd July, the New London Architecture organisation revealed the Aga Khan Centre had been voted the People’s Choice winner for the 2019 NLA Awards. The NLA selected projects from 18 different sectors to be put forward for the main awards and then opened voting up to the public at the London Festival of Architecture to find the People’s Choice winner. The Aga Khan Centre, while largely private, has recently been opened up to the public for a number of events, including the Open Garden Squares weekend that took place at the beginning of June. This proved a hugely popular event, with members of the public queuing round the block to get a glimpse at the Centre’s gardens! This award recognises the architectural value of the building as a whole, however the NLA have mentioned the Centre’s “beautiful gardens” as a particularly outstanding features.

It is an honour for us to be involved in projects that receive such recognition, and we are delighted to be able to share this news. Well done to everyone involved!
