The University of Roehampton Library and Mildmay in Hackney have been shortlisted for RIBA London Awards.
The new Library at the University of Roehampton is the centrepiece of an ambitious campus masterplan. The aspiration was for an enduring architecture: a library building with gravitas and longevity. It delivers over 1,200 study spaces, staff support and work areas, specialist digitisation and collection management over five floors and 7,840sqm.
Mildmay is a mixed-use project, combining private and social residential units, a church, a specialist hospital and commercial space, close to the Shoreditch Triangle off Hackney Road. FCBStudios developed the masterplan for the site through extensive community consultation and worked with Matthew Lloyd Architects to design six individual blocks which are sculpted to respond to surrounding buildings, streets and open spaces.
93 projects were shortlisted for the awards and the winners will be presented on 15 May.
Kellogg College Hub, Oxford has also been shortlisted for a RIBA South award.
