Hawkins\Brown's Morag Morrison considers the top projects in the news this week 

In this week’s Shop Talk interview, Michael Hammond speaks with Morag Morrison, Partner at HawkinsBrown and a member of the 2013 WAN Colour in Architecture Award jury panel. Morag was also part of the team that won the inaugural WAN Colour in Architecture Award back in 2011 with the New Biochemistry Building at the University of Oxford, UK.

During the interview, Morag explains how HawkinsBrown have recently moved into new offices in Clerkenwell, London after outgrowing their former studio. The team headed the redesign project themselves, creating a flexible workspace over two levels connected with a steel staircase.

The building was once used as a lift factory but now plays host to a series of meeting rooms (one of which Morag tells us was rented to Warner Bros. to brainstorm for the LEGO movie), a series of quiet desk spaces with acoustic baffles and more informal areas for collaboration and open discussion.

Morag also gives her professional opinion on some of this week’s top projects, including the National Design Centre in Singapore by SCDA, Abu Dhabi Ladies Club in the UAE by UPA and Tony Owen Partners, and Aarau Station Forecourt and Bus Station in Switzerland by Vehovar & Jauslin and formTL.
