Revealed: Winners of RIBA East Regional Awards

  • Comment

Projects by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Proctor and Matthews, and Mole Architects have been honoured at the RIBA East Regional Awards

The eight winning schemes, which included AHMM’s ‘unique and brilliant’ Alconbury Incubator, SOUP Architects’ ‘geometrically interesting’ studios in Aldeburgh and a ‘playful’ car park by Allies and Morrison and Devereux Architects, were chosen from a shortlist of 16.

The region’s Building of the Year Award went to Proctor and Matthews’ Abode in Great Kneighton. The £45 million residential scheme was praised by the judges for its ‘attention to detail’.

The judges said: ‘The brief clearly had a lot of complexities and requirements which have been executed with great resolve. The architects have fought hard to control aspects around the design and build specification which is a credit to them.’

The win paved the way for the London-based practice to pick up the East’s Architect of the Year Award.

Rural Office for Architecture’s Old Barn was recognised with the region’s Small Projects Award for its ‘well executed choice and use of materials’, while a private house designed to Passivhaus standards by Mole Architects won the Sustainability Prize.
