• Bell Yard Apartments Shortlisted for RICS Social Impact Awards 2020

    19 February 2020

    Bell Yard Apartments have been shortlisted for the inaugural RICS Social Impact Awards 2020 in the Residential Category.

    Bell Yard Apartments is a 10,600 sqft office-to-residential conversion adjacent to the Royal Courts of Justice, London. The existing building was low in architectural merit and presented an exciting opportunity to be reimagined as something of much higher quality and contribute more positively to the local conservation area. With shared aspirations towards adaptive reuse, the project team achieved this with minimal structural intervention; whilst managing to increase the GIA by 25% and dramatically improving its appearance.
