Hawkins\Brown: Going Underground
Roger Hawkins and Russel Brown set up Hawkins/ Brown Architects in 1988 upon leaving Rock Townsend. From the beginning they decided to chase large projects - as Roger tells us, "If you start doing small scale domestic extentions, 10 years later you're still doing small domestic extentions".
Railways and infrastructure projects were bound to appeal, and in 1992 they started work on the Tottenham Court Road station redevelopment, together with Cross Rail, which opened it's new entrance this week.
The firm has now been selected to deliver both Liverpool Street and Bond Street as well.
