The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames was seeking an innovative multi-disciplinary design team to work with them to develop a key site in Twickenham - a historic riverside town with a commercial town centre. The area surrounding the site is a mixture of residential and commercial, with areas of historic interest including Church Street, St Mary's Church and the Riverside itself, all of which fall within a conservation area.
Hopkins Architects were selected as the preferred bidder. Shortlisted teams included:
- Allies and Morrison
- Baynes and Mitchell Architects
- Cullinan Studio
- Haworth Tompkins
- Hopkins Architects
The decision to select Hopkins will be ratified by Richmond Council's Finance, Policy and Resources Committee meeting in February 2020, after which the official confirmation of appointment will be made.
