AHMM wins retendered Willesden Green contest

  • Comment

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) and Architecture 519 have won the re-tendered contest to design the Willesden Green Cultural Centre redevelopment in Brent, north London

The team, part of a bid led by Galliford Try Regeneration with Gillespies Landscape and URS Scott Wilson, will replace the existing 1980s library with a ‘community landmark’ and 90 flats.

Brent Council had originally selected a bid from a consortium led by First:Base with Arup Associates for the project. However, according to council documents, the tender process had to be reopened in November 2011 due to ‘material change to the structure of [First:Base’s] offer’ which was ‘reliant upon obtaining a significant level of funding from an external source’ (see attached document).

Hal Currey, director at Arup Associates said: ‘We’re naturally disappointed that despite having developed a design for Willesden Green which was really positively received by both Brent Council and First Base, we cannot take this scheme forward. We wish the council and AHMM well.’

A planning application will be submitted in the spring with completion set for 2014.
