Embassy Gardens shortlisted for Housing Design Award

Embassy Gardens has been shortlisted for a Housing Design Award in the completed schemes category 2016.

A central feature of the redevelopment of Nine Elms, Embassy Gardens forms the backdrop to the new US Embassy. Blocks are arranged around raised courtyards where a varying building mass is composed to maximise views, daylight and amenity space. 

Active retail and commercial frontages at ground level connect the Embassy Square, Linear Park and River Frontage with a network of streets and a central square.

The development is strongly influenced by the architectural style of New York’s meatpacking district and London’s Victorian and Edwardian mansion blocks to create a distinctive style for London’s newest landmark destination.

The results will be announced at an awards ceremony on the 11th July.
