The team won through after beating nine other proposals for the scheme, which was readvertised following the controversial cancelling of the original plans created by Rogers Stirk Harbour.

In a statement, the owner and developer Qatari Diar commented that: “It is likely that several firms could be involved in working on the different phases or elements of the scheme, to provide the diversity and sustainable quality merited by such an important site within central London”.

The initial submissions from the shortlisted teams were reviewed by a panel including representatives from Grosvenor, The Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment, as well as architects and architectural commentators.

Ghanim bin Saad Al-Saad, managing Director and CEO of Qatari Diar, added: “Qatari Diar has a long-term commitment to major investment at this site, in order to create a magnificent and sustainable new neighbourhood, respectful to the traditions, diversity and cultures of the surrounding urban fabric, and delivering the private and public spaces where people will want to be.

“The masterplan process continues the journey of investigation and consultation which has met with such a positive response over the past few months. We would like to continue the working partnership which has been evolving between ourselves and the local community, in order to deliver a very special place for London.”
