Parmarbrook in the press

Our highlights

We can’t quite believe we’re well over half way through 2023 already. As we’ve been reflecting on the year to date, we’ve taken a look back at Parmarbrook in the press in 2023. Here are our highlights.

AJ Retrofit Awards 2023 winners revealed

Our 98-100 De Beauvoir Road project, with architect Henley Halebrown, where Parmarbrook provided structural design consultancy, featured in The Architects’ Journal for its Workplace £5-10 million category award win at the AJ Retrofit Awards 2023.

98-100 De Beauvoir Road

“This ‘elegant’ low-carbon retrofit by Henley Halebrown retains large quantities of the brickwork, timber floors, cast iron and concrete found in the existing pair of connected Edwardian industrial buildings in De Beauvoir Town, Hackney. … Many of the original Edwardian features have been retained or restored, such as the traditional yellow London stock brickwork, large steel-framed windows and original details on the walls while a new storey has been added to both buildings, each with its own character and design resolution. … Judges praised the scheme’s ‘sophisticated’ architecture and said it had ‘ticked all the boxes’.”
