Report: AJ Small Projects 2009
Mitchell Taylor Workshop wins the top prize. Plus: pictures from the awards and party
Mitchell Taylor Workshop has won the the AJ Small Projects Award 2009, sponsored by Ramboll Whitbybird, for a £150,000 self-build extension to an 18th-century building with no road access.
This extension to Moonshine, a 1786 castellated stone building, was constructed with components that had to be carried by hand along a 400-yard woodland path. The architect had not intended to build the project themselves, but decided to replace a slow-moving contractor.
The practice was given the award - which is open to projects with a contract value of less than £250,000 – at a ceremony at New London Architecture, London (pictures below). The shortlisted entries will be exhibited at the venue until 26 February.
Second prize went to Dualchas Building Design for The Shed on the Isle of Skye; third prize to Burd Haward Architects for lift access to a property on Rendlesham Road, London. A Timber Room by Unit 7, London Metropolitan University was highly commended and Voluntary Design and Build’s Tarlungeni Children’s Centre in Brasov, Romania won the Ramboll Whitbybird Community Award.
