RIBA announces Client of the Year 2015 shortlist

  • Comment

Three clients are in the running for the RIBA Client of the Year Award 2015

Countryside Properties, The National Theatre and The Prince’s Regeneration Trust are vying for the annual accolade which was picked up last year by the Manchester Metropolitan University (AJ 16.10.14).

The award, supported by the Bloxham Charitable Trust, recognises the key role that good clients play in creating high quality architecture.

Nominated by Proctor and Matthews - the architect of its Abode housing scheme in Cambridge – Countryside Properties were also the client behind the 2008 Stirling Prize-winning Accordia.

The practice praised the housebuilder for its ‘focus on design quality with a desire to explore new and innovative responses to changing lifestyles and social patterns’.

The National Theatre was nominated by both Haworth Tompkins and Stanton Williams for its ‘refusal to fall back on a conventional, construction industry consumer/supplier relationship when the going occasionally got tough’.

While client of Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent – The Prince’s Regeneration Trust – was nominated for its ‘commitment to delivering challenging projects’.

The winner will be revealed at the Stirling Prize ceremony on 15 October.

Previous victors include the National Trust, the Olympic Delivery Authority and The Royal Shakespeare Company.
