"Regeneration and a passion for design are the common themes in the many projects undertaken by Andrew Wadsworth and Robert Ackland, partners in Waterhouse, over the last two decades or so. It is a remarkable story, beginning on the banks of the River Thames in 1980, when Wadsworth acquired the great Victorian warehouses of New Concordia Wharf in Bermondsey, left stranded by the rapid decline of London's docks and facing dereliction and inevitable demolition. The mix of residential space - London's first commercially developed lofts - and offices became an exemplar for other schemes throughout Docklands and far beyond and went on to win a string of conservation awards.
