Chris Dyson Architects (CDA) have been longlisted for the New London Architecture Don't Move Improve Awards with The Cooperage in Clerkenwell.

This contemporary family home has been extended and renovated by CDA who gained a deeper understanding of The Cooperage's industrial history. Although the building is not listed it dates back to the early 1900s. To preserve and celebrate the remaining original elements, which had been neglected during previous renovation, CDA worked meticulously to spot these opportunities, stripping back many of the recent additions to reveal and showcase the original historic fabric.

The winners will be announced in January 2017.
