AJ Retrofit Awards 2019 finalists revealed: Cultural and Listed Buildings

The AJ can reveal the fourth set of finalists among the 140 projects vying for this year’s AJ Retrofit Awards 2019. Today: the Cultural and Listed Buildings categories

Among the practices in the running in the two culture categories are schemes by David Kohn Architects, Hampshire County Council, David Chipperfield Architects and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios. 

They are joined by 20 projects involving listed structures designed by DSDHA, Eric Parry Architects, Nissen Richards Studio and BuckleyGrayYeoman. The shortlist includes John Puttick Associates’ refurbishment of Preston Bus Station.

The overhaul of Pitzhanger Manor and Gallery by Jestico + Whiles and Julian Harrap Architects has been nominated in both the cultural and listed building categories.

Last year the event’s main award, the coveted Retrofit of the Year prize, was given to a cultural project – Ian Ritchie Architects’ reworking of the Royal Academy of Music.

The yearly AJ Retrofit Awards programme is one of the most highly regarded in UK architecture and celebrates the design, engineering and construction excellence that prolongs and improves the life of our built world.

The 2019 winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at The Brewery in London on Wednesday, 11 September 2019. For more details contact Charlotte McKenzie on +44 (0)203 953 2050 or email Charlotte.McKenzie@emap.com
