Ironmonger Row Baths wins RIBA National Award 2013!
Tim Ronalds Architects and the London Borough of Islington were awarded a National RIBA award for Ironmonger Row Baths within the category of public realm at the RIBA awards ceremony in London this week.
The event which was held at Royal Institute of British Architecture Head Office in Portland Place, London celebrates the very best buildings in London and is announced on the same evening as the other regional awards across the country. Synergy Construction and Property Consultants were proud to act as Project Managers for the London Borough of Islington on this scheme which was to reconfigure and refurbish the historic baths bringing them into the 21st Century.
Synergy worked with the council to formulate the clear and targeted brief. The focus was to provide a centre that would meet the needs of local people whilst ensuring operational costs were minimised over the next 30 years. As well as restoring and celebrating the historic role the Baths has played locally, the brief looked to retain the Grade II Listed features, improve accessibility throughout the building and provide an environmental sustainable development. The new facilities include modern pools, fitness studios and an expanded Turkish baths and spa.
