ARCHIVIBE is proud to partner with the 2020 London Festival of Architecture & BowerBird in presenting a public vote contest, “The power of architecture to impact my life”.

We want to involve you into the discussion around architecture and London.

Architecture shapes our cities and places, our social and cultural values, and our daily lives:
architectures that changed the skyline or the views around us, buildings that shaped our daily routine or has helped a place or community for the better, architectures that changed the fortunes of a place, architectures that involve us, or just make our skin crawl.

All the architectures have been submitted during May and form the basis of the public vote.

You will be able to vote (until Tuesday 30 June 3:00 pm CET) on each building to decide which of these projects has the most powerful impact on people’s lives.

Which London building has impacted your life the most?

Jestico + Whiles has remodelled Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park in the London Borough of Ealing. The nationally important Grade-I-listed building, designed by Sir John Soane and George Dance the Younger, has been sensitively restored and transformed into a world-class museum. In February 2014, Pitzhanger Manor was granted planning permission with a referral to the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) required for the listed building consent. Jestico + Whiles lead the core design team, working alongside exhibition designer Ralph Appelbaum Associates and landscape architect J&L Gibbons, supported by Julian Harrap Architects and Sarah Couch Historic Landscapes who are providing heritage advice. works included restoration of the manor and entrance lodge; demolition of the Eating Room extension and nineteenth century infill; reinstatement of the Manor’s glasshouse (conservatory) and lantern (rooflight); refurbishment of the gallery as exhibition space and central visitor facilities; construction of a new café and events building in the walled garden; and new hard and soft landscaping including a café terrace and restoration of the Regency forecourt area.
