Regent High School wins Camden Design Award 2015
Regent High School is delighted to announce that at a ceremony on Thursday 17 September 2015 our new school was named as the winner of one of eight Camden Design Awards for 2015. This is a prestigious architectural award with a very high standard of entries covering public, commercial and residential developments, and the judges were very clear that the competition was extremely stiff; of the 60 entries, 36 were shortlisted, five were highly commended and eight were presented with awards.
Among the other buildings recognised with awards were the King's Cross station remodelling and refurbishment project, the new Camden Council building at 5 Pancras Square and the Isokon Gallery on Lawn Road, NW3.
The panel commented about the Regent High School project that 'This is an accomplished and sleek re-imagination of an entire school despite budgetary constraints; re-orientating its entrance; providing high-quality teaching accommodation; improving community facilities and celebrating its role in the heart of Somers Town. Natural light, transparency and openness flood the site with a sense of wellbeing, connecting occupants to the landscape and bringing a positive contribution to the cityscape'.
The award is a deserved tribute to the vision and hard work of our architects, the Camden-based Walters & Cohen.
