Congratulations to Mæ Architects on winning 2023 Stirling Prize!

Posted 24 November 2023

Mæ Architects who are working on Noelle Gordon House (former Hartley Centre in East Ham) have been awarded the prestigious Stirling Prize for their outstanding work on a housing project for later living in southwest London. The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has named the John Morden Centre – a retirement day centre in London – as the winner. The John Morden Centre provides day care for residents of Morden College, a retirement community, in Blackheath. The new centre complements existing buildings on the Grade I-listed college grounds, including an almshouse and chapel, both attributed to St Paul’s Cathedral architect Sir Christopher Wren.

This achievement comes as no surprise, given our close collaboration with them over the years. You can read more here.

We are thrilled for their success, which adds to the excitement surrounding the completion of Noelle Gordon House in the upcoming year. The building offers 75 spacious and vibrant units for later living, along with remarkable communal spaces and a health centre. The scheme offers an attractive choice of new homes for those looking to downsize. We anticipate the project to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.
