One Works shortlisted in Cambridge to Oxford Connection: Ideas Competition

One Works are delighted to be shortlisted, as part of a wider team, for an international competition that focuses on integrating placemaking with infrastructure in one of the UK’s leading growth regions: Cambridge to Oxford.   As part of the team, One Works will provide expertise in Urban Development Strategy, Masterplanning, and Transport Infrastructure Analysis. In particular, we will be responsible for identifying strategic development opportunities, integrating multidisciplinary inputs to maximise sustainable development, as well as analysing traffic and people movements across various modes of transport.   We are excited to be entering stage two of the competition together with a great team including: architects and urban designers, Mae; structural and civil engineering firm, AKT II; and landscape architects, Planit IE.   The National Infrastructure Commission and Malcolm Reading Consultants announced the shortlist for The Cambridge to Oxford Connection: Ideas Competition. The two-stage competition is seeking inspirational yet realisable visions for the future of development within the arc encompassing four of the UK’s fastest-growing and most productive centres: Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Northampton and Oxford.   The international competition launched on 30 June 2017 and invited entries from broad multi-disciplinary teams made up of urban designers; architects; planning, policy and community specialists; landscape designers; development economists; and others with local knowledge and general insight. Fifty-eight teams from the UK and further afield entered at the first stage, anonymously submitting emerging concepts focused on a chosen form of development – ranging from the intensification of existing urban areas to new autonomous settlements – along with separate details on the composition of their team.   The high-profile jury of thought-leaders in infrastructure, economics, design and placemaking, chaired by Bridget Rosewell (Commissioner for the National Infrastructure Commission), judged the emerging concepts and team composition and selected a shortlist.   Bridget Rosewell, Commissioner for the National Infrastructure Commission and Competition Jury Chair, said: “The Commission and the jury were delighted with the quality and detail of submissions to the competition, and we would like to thank all those who offered their ideas and energies. The shortlisted teams produced particularly imaginative and stimulating responses to the first-stage brief and we look forward to seeing how their ideas and visions develop.   “At the second stage, we will be looking for proposals that are rooted in their context and understand the local character, environment and landscape. We have asked competitors to consider how places will be integrated with infrastructure, but above all, we want to see what the proposals will mean for the lives of the people living and working in the corridor.”   For more information about the competition, visit the Malcom Reading website.

Marco Polo Airport opens new extension with light-filled gallery

One Works has completed Phase 1 of a major development plan for Marco Polo Airport, with expansive new facilities carefully integrated into the existing fabric of the airport. Working alongside SAVE Engineering, One Works has overseen the complex architectural and structural challenges involved in bringing the airport up to 21st century standards.   Marco Polo Airport is an important part of northern Italy’s transport infrastructure, the third such intercontinental hub in the country, with a growing number of passengers using routes through it thanks to an overarching traffic strategy.     The first phase of the extension: 2013-2017   Inaugurated on June 17, the new 11,000 sqm extension creates a kind of forecourt for the airport, improving accessibility to the terminal and connecting passengers to the dock via the new moving walkway; from here passengers can travel to Venice in style by Vaporetto or water taxi.   The new forecourtis comprised of an 280-metre-long, fully glazed gallery that takes advantage of the 22-metre-wide interstitial space left free in the original complex between the terminal and the dual level road.   The new distribution layout has been developed to marry the functional requirements of the day-to-day terminal operations but also to embrace the beauty of the spectacular views of the Venice lagoon.   One Works has created a harmonious dialogue between the original airport buildings and the new extensions, ensuring that the iconic lagoon landmark is expanded sustainably, now and in the future.     The new VIP Lounge & Winter Garden   Inspired by the traditions of Venetian glass, a new VIP area, known as the Marco Polo Lounge, is characterised by the use of glass, both as a form generator and as a finishing material.   The lounge is configured as two contrasting spaces with their own singular identities. On one side, overlooking the track and bathed in natural light, is the main relaxation area featuring floor-to-ceiling glass walls and an undulating ceiling that blends with the parquet floor. On the other side of the partition glass is an area close to the central core of the airport, dedicated to ancillary functions and services such as the reception, cloakroom, changing rooms, toilets, storage and food preparation areas.   Between these two spaces there are two further rest spots and the lounge also boasts a new winter garden that partially covers the existing terrace.
