We are excited to announce that Coal Drops Yard has won an RIBA London Award!

The judges admired the sensitive refurbishment of the original structures and the dramatic intervention of ‘kissing roofs’.

“It was evident in the scheme and from ‘before’ photos, just how much repair work had been done and that great care had been taken to identify original materials including the slate tiles for the roof, which were quarried from the same seam as the original. The character of the historic buildings and their setting have been brought back to life through sensitive adaptation and clever reuse for the 21st Century, whilst effectively retaining their industrial feel and vestiges of the past.”
