Winner Refurbishment Architect of the Year at the AYAwards 2017
3DReid are delighted to have won ‘Refurbishment Architect of the Year’ in the BD Architect of the Year Awards 2017.
Our entry celebrated recent work that transforms redundant or poorly performing buildings into distinctive, modern and efficient spaces. Projects featured were:
Dakota Deluxe, Glasgow
Conversion of a dilapidated 1960’s office building to provide a new city centre, 83 bed luxury boutique hotel.
Palace Hotel, Manchester
Refurbishment of the former Refuge Assurance Building in Manchester which is a Grade II* Listed Building designed by Alfred Waterhouse and built in 1895. We restored the public spaces, improving circulation routes, and remodelling of 272 bedrooms.
Re-model of an imposing 4-5 storey reinforced concrete structure constructed for C&A Modes & British Home Stores in 1974 by opening up the existing building envelope to promote active frontage and improve access at street level to both principal elevations. A new external fabric façade establishes a distinctive identity from key approaches.
The Switch, Slough
A comprehensive refurbishment to revitalise a 1980’s 10 storey office building into a modern, Grade A, flexible office space. A remodelled canopy creates an identity for the development, enhancing the sense of quality.
