We are thrilled that seven of our projects have been shortlisted in this year's RIBA Regional Awards.
In London, we have three shortlisted projects: Unity Place – affordable and social housing for Brent Council’s South Kilburn Regeneration, Battersea Exchange masterplan in Nine Elms and City of London Academy Shoreditch Park in Hackney. Two in the Southwest region: the retrofit and extension of the University of Bristol’s Senate House as a student hub and focus for the university’s Clifton Campus and the Roman Baths Clore Learning Centre and World Heritage Centre in Bath. In the Northwest, Manchester Metropolitan University’s School of Digital Arts has been shortlisted, and in the West Midlands. University of Warwick Faculty of Arts, bringing the whole faculty together in one building. The message from all the regional jury chairs was that the quality of architecture has been extremely high, emphasising its role in enhancing people’s lives and the urban environment. The buildings are now being assessed by regional juries, and the winning projects will be announced in the spring.
