Twickenham Riverside Competition won by Hopkins Architects November 12, 2019

Hopkins Architects has been selected to lead a multidisciplinary team to work with Richmond Council in developing this key riverside site in the heart of Twickenham.


Through careful integration of building, landscape and riverfront experience the team plans to create a new flourishing centre for the local area, where people can enjoy the full beauty and utility of the riverside, improving the physical, social and psychological links between the river and the town.


The selection of Hopkins, together with project funding, will be ratified and officially confirmed by Richmond Council's Finance, Policy and Resources Committee in January.


Paul Chadwick, Director of Environment and Community Services for Richmond Council, said: "We are delighted that an architect has been selected bringing forward designs that will not only deliver a new, revitalised Riverside, but will also drive economic improvement to the wider Twickenham Area. The Council looks forward to working with Hopkins Architects in the weeks and months ahead."


Hopkins are leading a multi-disciplinary team with Studio Weave, LDA Design, Skelly & Couch, Webb Yates and WSP. More than 50 teams entered the competition, with five taken to interview.
