We are delighted to announce that The Kensington Building, London, has been shortlisted for a World Architecture Festival Award.

Located on the former site of the Pontings department store, the bleak,1970s edifice has been transformed into a mixed-use development that delivers 95,000ft2 of BREEAM Excellent and WELL Standard Gold workspace and 34,000ft2 of retail space. The people-centred design also incorporates around 12,300ft2 of terraces, promoting bio-diversity and enhancing everyday wellbeing and work-life quality.

The World Architecture Festival (WAF) is the world’s largest festival and live awards competition, dedicated to celebrating and sharing architectural excellence from around the world. The Kensington Building will be presented to the judges by Fred Pilbrow and Tal Ben-Amar at the event taking place in November in Lisbon, Portugal.
