AJ Architecture Awards 2018 finalists: House and housing

Indexe 1

Here is the first set of finalists vying for the AJ Architecture Awards 2018

The schemes have been designed by practices including Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Denizen Works and 6a architects, and range from multimillion-pound housing projects in London to rural retreats on the Isle of Man.

More than 120 projects were chosen by our judges to compete in the AJ Architecture Awards, which showcase the very best built projects in the UK. Mary Duggan, Sam Jacob and Amin Taha are among the expert judges who will visit every shortlisted project this autumn.

In addition to stand-out design, judges will consider each project in detail – such as how it has met or exceeded the brief, how it has promoted client or community engagement, and how it has excelled in the use of space or sense of place.

The AJ Architecture Awards launched last year, when Henning Stummel Architects’ Tin House was named House of the Year and Paradise Gardens by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands was awarded Housing Project of the Year. Due to a high volume of entries, this year the Housing category has been split into projects valued under and over £10 million.

All winners will be revealed at an exclusive Gala Dinner at the Roundhouse in London on 4 December. The evening’s celebrations will culminate in the announcement of three special awards, chosen from all entries: the AJ Building of the Year, the AJ Architect of the Year and the AJ Editor’s Choice Award.

Last week shortlisted practices celebrated at a VIP reception at the ROCA London Gallery. 

The remainder of the shortlists in the contest’s 20 categories will be revealed over the coming week.
