White Lion House wins commendation at NLA Awards 2018

Shortlisted alongside twenty-one other housing projects located around London, White Lion House received one of only three commendations to be given out by the judges in the Housing category.

Containing 13 social and affordable rented homes, on the corner of St. Giles High Street and Denmark Street, this building was the key to unlocking the redevelopment of the Grade II listed Centre Point complex, located at the threshold of the new public square. Negotiating the constraints of the complex site, extending the exuberant modernism of Centre Point, it contributes a civic scale to the site providing density through interlocking units around a highly-efficient single-core, raised on a three-storey shop-front to a ground floor retail space.

The New London Awards 2018 took place at the Guildhall, London and was attended by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan who gave a keynote speech.

The New London Awards, launched eight years ago by New London Architecture (NLA), is London’s annual celebration of the best architecture, planning and construction projects that enhance the capital’s wider social and economic wellbeing.
