Denton Corker Marshall bags Sustainability Award after missing out on Stirling Prize

  • Comment

Denton Corker Marshall picked up the RIBA/English Partnerships Sustainability Award after missing out on this year’s Stirling Prize.

The practice’s BREEAM Excellent-rated Manchester Civil Justice Centre saw off Oundle School by Stirling Prize joint-winner Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Bristol Brunel Academy by Wilkinson Eyre, and Oxley Woods by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to land the £5,000 first prize.

Meanwhile, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, which also missed out on the top prize, came away with the £5,000 Sorrell Foundation Schools Award for its Westminster Academy in London.

Other winners on the night (Saturday 11 January) included John Pawson, who scooped the £5,000 Stephen Lawrence Prize for the best project with a budget less than £1 million for his curvaceous bronze Sackler Crossing in Kew Gardens.

Gustafson Porter also collected a cheque for £5,000 after winning the RIBA/CABE inaugural Public Space Award. The firm’s Old Market Square in Nottingham beat landscape architect Gross.Max’s ‘rejuvenated’ space around the revamped Royal Festival Hall and Allies and Morrison’s Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

Despite losing out on the Sustainability Award, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners did manage to bag this year’s Manser Medal for its Oxley Woods housing scheme in Milton Keynes.

Speaking about the project, Manser Medal judge Valerie King of The Rooflight Company said: ‘[The] positive feedback from [the] residents of [this] new housing is unprecedented. Equally unusual is the level of co-operation between architect, contractor and building-product supplier to achieve sustainability and waste-management targets.’

The final win of the evening went to the reopened St Pancras Station in London, which scooped the Crown Estate Restoration Award.
