The judges added that they “particularly liked the common areas both architecturally and socially.” They also commended giving the Drawing Room a permanent home at London Square Bermondsey, stating: “Incorporating a charitable art organisation within a private development is a socially valuable partnership and to be encouraged.”
Judges in the Best Interior Design category praised Paul Dawson of Honky Design, who was commissioned by London Square to create the interiors for the largest penthouse in The Blackwell Collection at The Pickle Factory, which has sweeping vistas over Canary Wharf and the London Eye:
“The oversized Crittall-style windows enhance the views of London. The arty style seen on the streets of Bermondsey is complemented in the apartment, with large sofas in the vast 30 ft warehouse-style open-plan living area and by using industrial lights and sourced local artwork… The large terraces have been dressed in warm soft grey sofas and day beds to admire the fantastic views.”
“Incorporating a charitable art organisation within a private development is a socially valuable partnership and to be encouraged.”
Jo McDonagh, Sales and Marketing Director, London Square, said: “We are thrilled to win these two prestigious awards. Bermondsey has been a six-year project for London Square of incredible complexity.
The awards reflect the impressive expertise and track record of the amazing team at London Square in revitalising a forgotten corner of Bermondsey, combining beautifully designed new build homes with the awe-inspiring restoration and conversion of The Pickle Factory and also The Tannery. It is wonderful to see our new residents enjoying their new homes and making the most of the Bermondsey lifestyle.”
The glittering awards will have pride of place in the cabinet of over 50 trophies won by London Square over the past 12 years, including an impressive collection of accolades from the Evening Standard New Homes Awards, Property Week’s RESI Awards and multiple wins at the WhatHouse? Awards, including Best Small Housebuilder and a record-breaking five gold awards for restoration of the Grade II listed The Star and Garter building on Richmond Hill and London Square Streatham Hill.
