News > Ten Trinity Square wins 2019 City Heritage Award
On Friday 19th July, our project at Ten Trinity Square, developed by the Reignwood Group, was announced as the winner of the annual City Heritage Award. The award, jointly nominated by the City Heritage Society and The Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers is given to the best Conservation or Refurbishment project in the City of London.
Aukett Swanke has won the City Heritage Award on three previous occasions, making the practice the most awarded since the scheme started in 1978. In 1980, the practice won the prize for the Union Discount Company on Cornhill and in 1992 the Royal Exchange (to which we are still architect today) won the accolade - on both occasions as Fitzroy Robinson and Partners, one of our founding practices. In 2002 Swanke Hayden Connell's (also a founding practice) new headquarters for Merrill Lynch on Newgate Street was the recipient.
We are proud that our approach to active conservation and the custodianship of a number of significant heritage sites and projects in London and beyond has been recognised in this way yet again.
