Allies and Morrison has beaten a stellar shortlist to design a trio of towers to replace Elizabeth House in Waterloo, south London. The practice was told of its victory in the invited competition - ahead of Make, Foreign Of'ce Architects and KPF - earlier this week. The decision was delayed in order for developer P&O Estates to hold a public exhibition of the designs in Elizabeth House last weekend, which was attended by the public and local councillors. Allies and Morrison's scheme - clearly the most conservative of those shortlisted - has already been dubbed the 'Three Sisters'.
The development will comprise two of'ce buildings and a residential tower. Detailed design work will commence immediately, with a planning application scheduled for submission this summer.
