Stanton Williams lands spot on Shell Centre line-up
Stanton Williams has been appointed to work on the high-profile redevelopment of London’s iconic Shell Centre
The AJ100-ranked practice is the latest addition to the design team working on the Squire and Partners-masterplanned 2.15 hectare project.
KPF, Patel Taylor and Grid Architects were chosen to work on the Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar-backed project earlier this month.
A spokesperson for the developers said: ‘Stanton Williams’ proposals stood out and demonstrated a clear understanding of our brief. We know they will be a valuable addition to our growing team of top-class architects, and will play an important role in redeveloping this special part of London.’
The studio will work with Squire and Partners to design one of the individual buildings on the riverside site. Concept design proposals currently being drawn up are subject to a public consultation launched earlier this year. A further consultation is planned to start in late June.
The vision includes two office blocks, three residential blocks, two ‘slender’ towers and a new public square. A landmark 27-storey skyscraper, part of architect Howard Robertson’s original 1961 Shell Centre complex, will remain on the site.
