KLA wins two Landscape Institute Awards for Brentford High Street 'making the connection', the 2015 Urban Design and Masterplanning Award and the most prestigious award, the 2015 President's Award.
Burntwood School wins 2015 RIBA Stirling Prize
"Simply put, Burntwood outshone its competitors on the shortlist because of the sheer range of architectural skills put to good use. The reuse of existing buildings, the clever artwork and signage strategy, the sculptural quality of the facades, the smart prefabrication approach, the low-energy design, the integration with landscape, the close collaboration with the headteacher: it’s no cliché to say Burntwood is a genuine tour de force. The decision was unanimous too." Rory Olcayto, RIBA Stirling Prize juror

The existing relationship between this historic facade and wider Whitechapel High Street will inform new public spaces.
