William Sutton Prize Finalists 2022

Jan 2022

William Sutton Prize - Finalist

We're excited to be amongst the finalists for the William Sutton Prize for Social Innovation, with 'Two Front Doors', our concept for Intergenerational Living.

In some London boroughs,  over 20% of households have more than one nuclear family living under the same roof and the majority of these are intergenerational setups. Our proposal acknowledges this largely ignored fact and not only offers a solution for bringing generations together, but for each to benefit from the value the other can bring to peoples lives; emotionally, practically and culturally.

We look forward to presenting the concept later on this month. Good luck to all shortlisted teams.

Crescent House planning approval

Our large house extension in St Albans gains planning approval. The single storey extension follows the fan of the Crescent Road it sits on, which creates a bold dynamic internally.


The project is due to commence on site in late spring.

Baugheschichte Studio

This academic year sees Milena as a visiting lecturer at the University of Innsbruck, where she leads a design studio. In December, students are preparing for mid-term reviews of their proposals for 'Boris Limited' 87-95 Hertford Road, DeBeauvoir.

Boris Limited was once a hive of industrial activity, including wartime fuel canister making. Until recently the facility was home to bag and cotton bud making. The students have been asked to look at how the derelict facility could become once again a live part of the city, reinterpreting the relation between living and working spaces. They are working on the industrial era’s built legacy to accommodate post-pandemic realities.

Housing for the Future - Competition Winners

Adrian Hill Architects wins the Housing for the Future - Intergenerational Living open ideas competition run by Enfield Council and Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing.

Our entry, 'Two Front Doors' sought to address some of the problems surrounding the sharing of space with others. We believe the key to successful intergenerational living is to enable people to live together and apart at the same time, and for all to feel part of one vibrant community.

The benefits of sharing everyday life with a separate or an extended family should not come at the cost of losing privacy. Our entry makes a case for a variety of arrangements in which intergenerational living can take place. The design allows for degrees of openness to one another as well a buffer zone for privacy.

Check out the article in the Architects Journal here, and our interview with Frame magazine here.
