James Fort and WWI Memorial

Feilden+Mawson, working with Just Ghana Ltd, is producing a feasibility study for the refurbishment of the war memorial in Accra’s historic Jamestown. The area was the seat of British Colonial government pre-independence, and thus part of the project is to erect an information board recognising the contribution of the Gold Coast Regiment in WWI & II and other military campaigns with the British armed forces. Funding has been approved for the coming year which will also involve repairs to the historic James Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Parliamentary Education Centre

24/02/15 was an important date in the history of Feilden+Mawson's New Education Centre in Victoria Tower Gardens; the burial of a time capsule containing sketches of the scheme, along with MP's and young people's visions for the future of democracy and other mementos marks one year after planning permission was granted for construction. Members of the House of Commons Commission and 28 young people from across the UK dedicated the time capsule to the thousands of students who will visit in the future. The centre is due to open in summer 2015.

Norfolk House

Home renovation, new build extension and interior scheme recently completed by Erin Davidson, of Feilden+Mawson, for a private client in Norfolk. The front half of the house consists of the original early C19 cottages, with exposed brickwork, timber beams and oak windows, while the rear extension has a deliberate contrasting language of white walls and black modern glazed walls and doors. Connecting the two halves of the house at first floor level is a 'floating' glass walkway.

Complementing the clients existing collection of antiquity furniture and artwork, Erin designed bespoke storage units, a media wall, kitchen units, the staircase and procured new furniture, finishes and light fittings for a contrasting contemporary feel.

Trinity House shortlisted for RICS Award

We are delighted to announce that our scheme, Trinity House in Lowestoft, has been shortlisted for the RICS East of England Awards 2015 in the ‘Regeneration and Commercial’ category. Following the judges visit, category winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on 6th May 2015. The new facility for Essex & Suffolk Water, which formally opened in September last year, demonstrates how high design and construction quality can deliver benefits to staff, customers and the residents of Lowestoft for now and years to come.
