The Black & White Building shortlisted for WAF awards 2022 1

We are delighted to announce that the Black & White Building has been shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival 2022 award Future Projects Commercial Mixed-Use category.

We'll be off to Lisbon later this year for the week long festival to present The Black & White Building to judges and the Audience.

Here's a teaser:

Nestled in the ultra-low emission streets of London sits The Black & White Building, an innovative workspace that marries wellbeing and productivity with environmental and sustainability ambition.

The Black & White Building has been built to meet the demands of tomorrow, from the materials of today. This boundary pushing building will be central London’s tallest mass timber office on completion and sets a new benchmark for sustainability, demonstrating that timber is not only a viable alternative to the conventional concrete and steel traditionally used to build offices, but when it comes to performance and sustainability, it is actually the preferable option.

Carefully considered design and material choices have created a building that has minimised carbon in both its construction and its operation.
