The Georgian Group Architectural Awards 2008
Mixed use building, 198 - 202 Piccadilly in London awarded New Building in the Classical Tradition award
Georgian Group Awards 2008 Commendation in the category New Building in the Classical Tradition has been awarded to the mixed use building at 198 - 202 Piccadilly in London.
198-202 Piccadilly, designed by Robert Adam, is a new building in the heart of London's West End. It faces three ways: north onto Piccadilly, south onto Jermyn Street and west onto Church Place - an important pedestrian link between the two main streets. It is eight storeys high and will house over 70,000 square feet of office space and nearly 30,000 square feet of retail space. It is a modern classical design that complements the character of its surroundings while adding something fresh and new.
The Georgian Group Architectural Awards, sponsored by international estate agents Savills, recognise exemplary conservation and restoration projects in the United Kingdom and reward those who have shown the vision and commitment to restore Georgian buildings and landscapes. Awards are also given for high-quality new buildings in Georgian contexts and new architecture in the Classical tradition. The 2008 awards were presented by the The Rt. Hon. and Rt. Rev. Dr. John Sentamu, Lord Archbishop of York, on 5 November 2008.
