Hawkins Brown lands Bartlett refurb
Job is one of three awarded under £500m masterplan
Hawkins Brown has been appointed to overhaul the Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London’s Bloomsbury campus.
The practice was awarded the prestigious job this week following an interview process. Levitt Bernstein and BMJ Architects were also in contention.
BD understands Architecture PLB was also in the running, but pulled out after being awarded the scheme to design UCL’s new student centre.
The eight-storey building, also including three basement levels, will cost some £45 million.
Earlier this month the university awarded a third scheme to Levitt Bernstein, which will oversee the redevelopment of the Kathleen Lonsdale building.
The work is part of the university’s £500 million masterplan drawn up by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands which was approved by the UCL Council last year.
A spokesperson for the university said the projects were still “at briefing stage”.
