Projects by Duggan Morris, Wilkinson Eyre, Niall McLaughlin and Robin Snell are amongst those which have been honoured with RIBA South Regional Awards
Duggan Morris’ ‘uplifting’ swimming pool at Alfriston School, a pavilion by Robin Snell which the judges described as a ‘finely-wrought jewellery box’, and Niall McLaughlin Architects’ ‘beautifully crafted’ timber fishing hut in Hampshire have made the seven-strong list of projects receiving RIBA South Awards.
The restoration of a grade I-listed Lutyens-designed house by Frances and Michael Edwards Architects picked up the region’s Conservation Award while its Sustainability Award went to Wilkinson Eyre’s Oxford Maggie’s Centre for its ‘impressive combination of sustainability credentials’.
The region’s top award was handed to a house for Lord Rothschild by London-based Skene Catling de la Pena. The judges said the flint house was an ‘example of an innovative piece of architecture that suggests a typology for the one-off house which is not an object in the landscape but is of the landscape’.
