RIBA AWARDS

WESTON ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND Finch Macintosh Architects Client: Weston Adventure Playground This project involves the remodelling of play areas and an indoor play facility for pre-schoolers to 18year-olds in Southampton.

The result is a 'timber fort' above a stockade that resorts to neither stereotype nor pastiche.

A gallery at tree-top level gives great vantage over woodland and water.

£679,762. 297m

ALTON LIBRARY Hampshire County Council Client: HCC Library Headquarters The site for this library is irregular. Clever inclusion of a retaining wall has yielded a valuable and interesting internal floor area at ground level.

The formal rectangular volume of the upper floors sits above this. The building is harmonious with its setting, while maintaining a strong contemporary quality.

£1.274 million. 740m

THE GRANARY AT CROWMARSH BATTLE FARM Spratley & Woodfield Client: Crowmarsh Battle Farm This working arable farm at Benson in Oxfordshire seeks to diversify into rural commercial sectors by refurbishing buildings for office and other uses. Due to decay, the entire structure was craned to an adjacent area for repair. It is an exemplary essay in repair and exploiting a building's existing character.

£114,000. 86m
