A video from the architect

Hopkins Architects, the winner of the design competition, has produced a video highlighting some key aspects of their concept design. They, as part of a wider design and project team, are now developing the design prior to making a planning submission next year.

Current situation

The Council continues to work on the Twickenham Riverside project throughout the current public health emergency, with much of the work able to continue as normal. By changing how we work with our consultants, stakeholders and the public, we aim to ensure that the project stays on track and that people are kept informed and engaged whilst maintaining staff and public safety.

Below is an indicative high-level programme:

  • Design development – Spring to Winter 2020
  • Public consultation – Late Summer 2020
  • Submission of a planning application – Early 2021
  • Work on site commences – Summer/Autumn 2021


The Royal Institute of British Architects and Richmond Council named the team led by Hopkins Architects as the preferred bidder for the Twickenham Riverside Design Competition on Tuesday 12 November. During the competition, Hopkins Architects were known as Architect 1 (pdf, 13.8MB).

In February 2020 the Finance, Policy and Resources Committee ratified the decision to appoint Hopkins Architect and their sub-consultants and approved the funds to take the project forward.
