Urbanest City wins City Building of the Year

We are delighted that Urbanest City has been awarded City Building of the Year, at this year’s prestigious The Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects Annual Awards.
Urbanest City designed by Apt for Client Urbanest UK
The judging panel praised the project, commenting upon the unique, high-quality design and exceptional precision in its delivery. They also referred to the nature in which the mix of uses have been seamlessly knitted together with a large section of London’s Roman City Wall restored and displayed as a centrepiece.

The mixed-use building creates a new, high-profile destination in the City of London and includes 656-beds of high-quality student housing, incubator, and flexible office space, as well as a café and a public exhibition space which houses a preserved section of the original Roman London City Wall.
