Maggie’s wins Award

Maggies_hamm The new Maggie’s Centre in Hammersmith has won a Hammersmith Society Environmental Award.

The prizegiving was held at the London Corinthian Sailing Club in the Upper Mall on Wednesday, May 21.

Richard Rogers architect Will Wimshurst said: “It has been amazing to be involved with Maggie’s. It’s great to work on your own doorstep.  We work all over the world, and it was really really nice to do something in your backyard.”

The Nancye Goulden Award, which is given for smaller schemes which have improved the local environment in some way either through a building or landscaping, was awarded to the office/design studio development in Alma Place off Harrow Road which the judges described as a "delightful conversion of a scrap metal garage into a gallery".

A Conservation award, newly introduced this year was awarded to the renovated St Andrej Bobola Church in Greenside Road.

‘Wooden Spoons’ for bad buildings and landscaping schemes were awarded to:

  • Hammersmith and Fulham Council for the street banners in King Street, near Hammersmith Broadway and in Fulham Palace Road
  • The Thames Water roundabout in Shepherds Bush
  • The temporary bus station in Hammersmith Broadway
  • The L’Oreal advert in Hammersmith Broadway
