Acclaim for Notting Dale’s public realm
We’re thrilled to announce that Breaker’s Place has recently received a RIBA London Award. Notting Dale’s public realm was recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects for its impact on the local working and residential community with the recent addition of outdoor seating, street planters and acclaimed art all being cited in the announcement.
Architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris have been working with Notting Dale for more than 10 years, carefully crafting both Breaker’s Place and the surrounding buildings to create a truly unique destination.
Breaker’s Place’s development specifically over the past few years has seen significant changes with its official naming solidifying its position as the heart of Notting Dale. The name takes inspiration from its industrial past as a scrap metal breaker’s yard for cars, recognising the historical significance of the site. The yard was a key hub for the Republic of Frestonia over the years, inspiring the concept for their art gallery and as such, we’re hugely proud that the space continues to inspire to this day.
With new art from acclaimed British sculptor Antony Gormley recently being added to Breaker’s Place, the future can only get brighter for Notting Dale central hub.
