AJ Retrofit Awards 2018 finalists revealed: Housing, schools and health

The AJ can reveal the second set of finalists vying for this year’s ‘retrofit Oscars’. Today: housing, schools and health

Over the coming days we will be announcing all the projects shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards 2017, covering schemes as small as house conversions to major overhauls of historic listed structures.

Among the practices shortlisted for their major housing projects are Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Cullinan Studio and Holder Mathias Architects while RCKa, alma-nac and Snell David Architects join the finalists in the housing under £5 million category.

There are also nominations for the best health and wellbeing retrofit project for Sonnemann Toon Architects, Bradley Van Der Straeten Architects and A21 Architects.

Last year the Retrofit of the Year prize went to Acanthus Clews Architects’ ‘counter-intuitive but brilliant’ reworking of a community hall in the historic village of Burford, Oxfordshire.

The schools category features schemes by BDP,  Cottrell & Vermeulen and Tower Hamlets Council’s in-house architects team.

Thie 2018 winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at The Brewery in London on 12 September. To book your place, please call Maddie on 020 3953 2675 or email Maddie.Odell@emap.com.
