RIBA appoints client advisor for 66 Portland Place rethink

  • 1 Comment

The RIBA has appointed architect Sarah Williams to advise on the masterplan for its headquarters at 66 Portland Place

The former Aedas director, who is an accredited RIBA client advisor, will carry out a strategic review of the options for the future use of RIBA’s headquarters.  

The building opened in 1834 and the plans are set to develop a proposal for the next 80 years of its use.

Founder of S Williams Architects, Williams said: ‘I’m delighted to have been appointed for this important project and look forward to working with everyone at the RIBA, developing an exciting and coherent vision for the future of this landmark building.’

The appointment follows an RIBA-run competition. The institute said it wanted to approach the project with an ‘open mind’ so that it could create a new vision based on ‘real insight’ and ‘deep understanding’.

Williams will now propose an initial consultation process which is set to inform a competition to select and architect to develop the masterplan for the building.

The strategic review is set to be completed in February 2016 with the results presented to RIBA council in March.
