HTA shortlisted for three AJ100 awards
We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted in three Architects' Journal AJ100 Awards.
- Employer of the Year
Excited to be shortlisted in the for the Employer of the Year award. Congratulations to all practices shortlisted and thanks to all our staff who make HTA such a great place to work
- Community Impact Award
We’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Community Impact Award. We try to make the engagement process as interesting & involving as we can in order to reach as many residents as possible, getting them involved in the design process at every stage.
The Winstanley and York Road regeneration has a far-reaching vision for the area which builds on the aspirational masterplanning. We’ve been working with residents on a varied programme of activities including art projects, hoarding artwork and planting. We worked with the local school – Falconbrook - to create a living green wall, restoring lavender to the local area, where it historically grew, using recycled plastic bottles to grow the plants, and eye-catching illustrations to convey the story and project messaging.
Part of the project involved setting up a community wood-working workshop (Assemble & Join) where members of the community are able to design and build objects utilising a CNC wood router and hand tools to be installed in the public realm.
- Collaboration of the Year
We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Collaboration of the Year Award for the Distinctively Local Report which was a collaborative effort with PTE Architects, Proctor and Matthews and PRP.
The four practices, collaborating on this publication have a long history of attempts to tackle this challenging market segment, taking on commissions and working to understand the business drivers of housebuilder clients at the same time as delivering the highest possible design quality.
Our objective was to show what it is possible to achieve with examples from our own work, at the same time as setting out some guiding principles based on experience.
Our previous experience of joint publications on super-density, estate regeneration and suburban intensification brought us together again in an exercise of pre-competitive collaboration in the belief that arguments made in unison have more telling impact.
