Date: 29 May 2019
Three architectural practices with close links to The Cass have been named in the list of winners of the annual Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) London awards.
- Mæ Architects, for who Cass architecture tutor Alex Ely is a founding director, won for their work on Brentford Lock West Phase 2, a three-phase residential regeneration masterplan beside the Grand Union Canal.
- HASA Architects, HASA Architects was founded by Charlotte Harris and Cass graduate Mark Stevens in 2014. Charlotte Harris, an architecture tutor on Undergraduate Architecture Studio 2 at the school, picked up the award for Highgate Bowl - transforming a derelict horticultural glasshouse at Highgate Bowl near the top of Highgate Hill in North London.
- Gatti Routh Rhodes Architects, which was founded by Cass graduates Richard Gatti, Tom Routh and Stefanie Rhodes in 2013, won for their work on Bethnal Green Mission Church (BGMC), a contemporary place for worship complete with two community halls, café, community kitchen, food bank stores, offices, 14 private apartments and a vicarage.
This is not the first award for Gatti Routh Rhodes this month. The trio was also named Young Architect of the Year by Building Design, in part due to their work on BGMC.
Richard Gatti said, “We're thrilled to win a RIBA London Award for Bethnal Green Mission Church, which we feel reflects not only the architecture but also the way in which the building is used as a valuable community resource - for those of all faiths and none".
