Earlier this week, Heyne Tillett Steel Director, Mark Tillett and Founder and Architect, Ian Chalk of Ian Chalk Architects spoke at the 2022 Architects’ Journal AJRetrofitLive.
The discussed was centred around 16 Chart Street which won the Architects’ Journal 2022 Retrofit of the Year award and the brilliant ongoing longstanding relationship we have between both practices.
Looking back to the judges comments of 16 Chart Street from the award win:
"Alongside a full internal and external refurbishment, a panellised timber system was used for new-build elements, including top-floor and side extensions with a new stair and lift core. This maximised efficiency in manufacture and transportation, minimised construction time and material waste and has resulted in richly characterful, light-filled spaces. As one judge commented: "I’d love to work there."
We look forward to sharing more collaborations in the near future.
