Haptic Newsletter March 2016
It has been a fantastic beginning to 2016. Now in our 7th year, Haptic’s studios in London and Oslo continue to expand with a global portfolio of projects in the UK, Norway, Denmark, Turkey, Czech Republic, Dubai & the USA.
Haptic are delighted to be working on the London Cancer Hub , which will be the second largest life science cluster in the world. The 20-ha site in Sutton will specialise in cancer research, treatment, education and enterprise.
Haptic are working with Nordic - Office of Architecture, JLL and WSP to create a vibrant community-focused campus, with new research buildings, hospital facilities, restaurants, hotels and a new secondary school. The designs are out for public consultation and included within Sutton's local plan and the vision document Sutton 2031.
The LCH is being developed by the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) and Sutton Council, with support from The Royal Marsden and the GLA. Inner Circle Consulting are providing project management services for the project.
Haptic have been working with developer Banda Property on Rosemoor Studios and Orford House in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The development will consist of two 2-bedroom and two 1-bedroom apartments and a large 4-bedroom townhouse. Planning permission has been granted and the project has started on site. Completion is expected later this year.
Haptic are delighted to announce that we have won the BD Interior Architect of the Year Award 2016, for our projects Arkwright, Archive - Homestore and Kitchen and Highlever Road.
Istanbul Grand Airport has been shortlisted in the MIPIM Awards in the Best Futura Mega Project category, due to be announced 17 March. We were also finalists in the AJ Small Projects Award for Archive - Homestore & Kitchen.
Haptic are included in the latest edition of the highly influential series of books by The Architecture Foundation. New Architects 3 is due to be published in March 2016 and will be launched at MIPIM 2016.
If you are attending MIPIM 2016 this year and would like to meet up with our team, Director's Scott Grady and Timo Haedrich and Senior Architect Emelie Tornberg will be on hand.
Timo is currently underway with the Broadgate Estates CYCLE TO MIPIM charity challenge; a 1452km cycling endurance event from London to Cannes.
Haptic are delighted to be sponsoring the event, helping to raise money for CYCLE TO’s main beneficiary CORAM; the UK’s oldest children’s charity. So far Timo has managed to raise nearly £3.5k.
We look forward to seeing you there!
