Competition set to breathe new life into London’s Docklands – British Waterways

British Waterways, in partnership with H20 Urban Ltd, has today announced the winners of a competition to remodel five historic Spits Barges to create an exceptional mixed use scheme in London’s Docklands.

The winning practices have been announced as:

• BACA – an award winning research led practice noted for their work around climate change and flooding, and;
• PCKO – also an award winning practice, noted for their work in creating attractive buildings that respect the environment and utilise innovative technology.

Both submissions impressed the judges with their ability to challenge traditional perceptions of waterspace design, whilst retaining continuity with the commercial past of the Barges and their surroundings.
