We were surprised and very delighted that High House Artists' Studios was awarded a RIBA Regional Award last week. Even more so that our client, High House Production Park/Thurrock Council, won Regional Client of the Year, which is very well deserved for Matthew Essex's fantastic vision, project management and determination to achieve a high quality of design fully integrated with interesting financial models for cultural industries workspace. The project was described as an "elegantly rational composition" and we're very happy that the aim of the project was so well understood.
We also won RIBA East Emerging Architect of the Year, in recognition of the quality of our work across the board, which feels like a great achievement.
We've recently got some fantastic shots of the Studios in use from Hugo Glendinning. Proper photoset to follow but seeing as it's timely, a taster above. Wonderful to see art and mess being made in the studios, it's what the project is all about.
