Revealed: Winners of 2016 RIBA South West Awards

  • Comment

Schemes by Design Engine, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Glenn Howells Architects are among the winners of the 2016 RIBA South West Awards

Chosen from a shortlist of 16 schemes, the 10 regional victors include a ‘bold, muscular and exciting’ police training centre by Haverstock, a 2,000m2 recycling centre by Bath-based Mitchell Eley Gould and Peter Cook’s ‘exemplary art making space’ at Arts University Bournemouth.

The reimagining of a Smithsons-designed studio by Coppin Dockray, a ‘vertiginous and dramatic’ scheme by John Pardey Architects and a home with a ‘staggering beach front location’ by Arco2 Architecture were the only three houses to make the list of winning projects.

The region’s Building of the Year Award went to Loyn & Co’s house for a pair of artists in the New Forest. Describing the scheme the judges said: ‘The design eloquently and effortlessly tackles many familiar issues; the blurred relationship between interior and exterior space, the penetration of light into a deep single aspect plan, the control of sustainability without flaunting it.’

Schemes that missed out on awards include Sheppard Robson’s Bristol Life Sciences building, the Photography Building at the Arts University Bournemouth by Design Engine Architects, and Hanham Hall by HTA Design.

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

Regional winners will be put forward for the RIBA National Awards, with the lucky recipients announced in June. Those collecting national awards will then be considered for the 2016 RIBA Stirling Prize.
