“Clapham builder scoops top industry award
Orchestrate Design and Build, based in Clapham, has scooped a prestigious Master Builder Award, taking the prize for best Heritage project in the Federation of Master Builders’ (FMB) London region for its creative conversion of the iconic Britannia Row Studios in Fulham.
Orchestrate Design and Build was selected by the region’s judges to win the Heritage Award and will now go through to compete in the national finals for the chance to win the UK category title.
The winning project is a daring conversion of Fulham’s Britannia Row Studios in Fulham. Originally used as an industrial facility to service London taxis, for two decades the building was home to a recording studio at which some of the biggest names in rock history recorded, including Pink Flloyd, Bjork, Snowpatrol and Kate Bush.
The renovation project involved creating two apartments that reflect both the industrial and rock history of the building. It’s a conversion that is both sympathetic to history and forward-looking in terms of the chic interior design.”
