The AJ can reveal the first set of finalists vying for this year’s ‘retrofit Oscars’. Today: Houses
Over the next week we will be announcing all the projects shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards 2017 – starting with the three house categories.
Among the schemes in the running are Spheron Architects’ Urban Hermitage, the recreation of a remote Belgian monastery in a London studio flat; an addition to a Grade II-listed barn in Hampshire by Adam Knibb Architects; and a house extension by 2013 AJ Small Projects winner Laura Dewe Mathews.
Last year the coveted Retrofit of the Year prize was handed to Allford Hall Monaghan Morris’s £2.9 million revamp of Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre.
The 2017 winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at The Brewery in London on 13 September (for more information click here). The AJ Retrofit Awards are sponsored by Sapa Building Systems, Cantifix and Schlüter-Systems.
