Revealed: Fourteen projects win RIBA South West Awards

  • Comment

Schemes by Design Engine, Eric Parry and Glenn Howells Architects are among the winners of the 2017 RIBA South West Awards

There are also accolades for Stan Bolt Architect, Mole architects and WilkinsonEyre, while Totnes-based David Sheppard Architects has two winning buildings.

In all there are 14 regional winners – an increase of four on the number of schemes honoured in the South West last year.

The region’s Building of the Year went to the New Music Facilities for Wells Cathedral School, by Eric Parry Architects, while the Small Project title was picked up by Woodsman’s Treehouse, Dorset, by Brownlie Ernst and Marks.

Invisible Studio’s Wolfson Tree Management Centre took home the Sustainability Award, with the scheme’s backer, the Forestry Commission, winning Client of the Year. 

RIBA South West regional director Jon Watkins said: ‘RIBA Awards always bring out the best in local and national architects across the South West and this year’s award-winning-projects offer quality, diversity of type and scale, excellence in design and lots and lots of pure delight.’

All the winning buildings will now go on to be considered for national honours, with the successful projects revealed on 22 June. The six finalists for the 2017 RIBA Stirling Prize will be drawn from these national winners.
