The Earls Court Development Company appoints Hawkins\Brown and Studio Egret West as joint masterplan architects

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Hawkins\Brown and Studio Egret West as the principal masterplan architects for the Earls Court development site. The appointment is a 50/50 collaboration between Hawkins\Brown and Studio Egret West. The London based firms will support The Earls Court Development Company in seeking to deliver a masterplan that sets a new global standard for a sustainable and vibrant mixed-use development. The ambition is greater than the provision of buildings alone: it is to create an environment that is reintegrated with its surroundings for the first time in 100 years and in doing so embraces the hopes and aspirations for the local community and the area.

The appointment follows a six-month international competition involving world-leading architectural practices. Hawkins\Brown and Studio Egret West have a long-standing partnership with a proven track record across a large number of developments, including numerous projects in and around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, London. Hawkins\Brown and Studio Egret West’s partnership and considerate approach complements and reflects The Earls Court Development Company’s collaborative ethos and ambitions.

The Earls Court Development Company and project team will now work on developing the masterplan, with initial details emerging in the coming months.

As the current custodians of the project, we and the masterplan architects place engagement with the local community and wider stakeholders at the heart of our approach to design and development and alongside Hawkins\Brown and Studio Egret West we will be consulting every step of the way as the plans develop.”
