Working with a confined and difficult site, the London-based architects EPR Architects delivered a LEED Platinum and BREEAM Excellent rated workplace in the heart of the City of London. 100 Cheapside features highly flexible, efficient floor plates. The façade combines Portland stone with high-spec glazing, and steps back as the building rises. The building is highly sustainable as well as beautiful, featuring passive cooling, rainwater attenuation, a grey water recycling plant and green and brown rooves. As well as bird, bat and insect boxes, the design incorporates photovoltaic cells and thermal solar panels.

Established Architectural practice Hopkins Architects are based in North London, and completed this total refurbishment of the original venue for the 1948 Olympic cycling events in Herne Hill, South London. The design of the pavilion features a timber structure above, utilising 6 of the original decorative cast iron columns from the 1890’s structure to hold it up. The scheme provides a new kitchen and servery, changing rooms, toilets, and a large club room that has views of the track beyond. The stepped terrace provides numerous seating opportunities for race spectators. The project also provides a fabric-roofed space behind which provides all-year weather protection.
