Caruso St John scoops RIBA London Building of the Year Award

Caruso St John’s Chiswick Park Café project has won this year’s coveted RIBA London Building of the Year award

Picked from the capital’s 26 RIBA Award-winning schemes, the Cafe also received the English Heritage prize for ‘sustaining the historic environment’.

Hopkins Architects’ 2012 Velodrome bagged the equally prestigious Design for London client of the year award.

The special awards winners were announced at a ceremony at the V&A museum this morning (19 May). The Building of the Year prize was sponsored by BLP Insurance.

Mark Brearley of Design for London said, ‘ On behalf of the Mayor of London we extend our congratulations to all the fantastic RIBA Award winners this year. I want to encourage everyone looking at the list to marvel at the sheer creative energy of London – still the worlds greatest concentration of design  capacity and excellence.’

Jeff Maxted, technical director of BLP Insurance added: ‘The Chiswick House Café London Building of the Year is a stunning acheivement and clearly shows how a beautiful modern building can enhance a landscape and sit alongside an older building when they all compliment each other so well. Our congratulations go to Caruso St John for their 21 years of outstanding work around the world.’
