HAWKINS\BROWN ADDS TO MORE LONDON

NEWS IN PICTURES

Hawkins\Brown has been given the go-ahead for this £5 million mixed-use project near Tower Bridge, London - one of the final pieces of the high-pro-le More London business district development led by Foster & Partners.

Sitting behind Foster's GLA building and two 10-storey office blocks, the scheme on Tooley Street will create 2,500m 2 of space over three oors. The plans include the refurbishment of the run-down St John's Tavern public house, which will be converted into a restaurant, while the remainder of the terrace will be revamped and used as studios and offices. The practice was handed the scheme after narrowly missing out on the Unicorn Children's Theatre competition - won by Keith Williams.

However, impressed by Hawkins\Brown's entry, More London turned to the firm when it needed an architect to mastermind the overhaul of the neighbouring plot.

Due to go on site early next year, it is hoped the project will complete in June 2008.
