Cartwright Pickard are delighted to have been shortlisted to one of ten practices in the AJ/Crown Estate Future Office competition, to compete for the chance to take part in a day-long charrette on the future of one of The Crown Estate’s most prominent West End buildings.
Shortlisted alongside ourselves are Zaha Hadid Architects, Alma-nac, Chetwoods and Ben Adams Architects as well as Drummond Lawlor, Emrys Architects, NBBJ, Threefold Architects and Scott Brownrigg.
Following submissions from almost 80 teams, this final ten will present their ideas for the office of the future in detail to a judging panel on 13 October.
A final six will be chosen to take part in a day-long charrette to consider how inspiring and effective workplaces will operate from 2020 onwards, based on changing ways of living and working, new technology and the impact of climate change.
Workplace design is in Cartwright Pickard’s foundations and we certainly hope to bring our extensive knowledge, skills and experience of designing for both commercial and public sector offices to bear on this competition.
