RIBA East awards 2019: record crop of 18 winners revealed

  • Comment

Walters & Cohen Architects’ student accommodation for Cambridge University’s Newnham College has won Building of the Year in the RIBA’s East region

The Dorothy Garrod Building was among a record 18 buildings which took home RIBA Regional Awards at a ceremony in Cambridge yesterday evening (Thursday).

The Cambridgeshire region alone saw a bumper crop of 12 winning projects, including Haworth Tompkins’ performing arts centre, Mole Architects’ Marmalade Lane co-housing and Jamie Fobert Architects’ Kettle’s Yard.

Other winners from the 23-strong shortlist included Black Barn in Suffolk by Studio Bark and a Norfolk low carbon social housing scheme by Mikhail Riches with Cathy Hawley. Both projects were recently featured in the AJ.

There were also regional gongs for Hertfordshire with John McAslan + Partners’s museum and gallery and Tate Harmer’s Kintyre, both in St Albans.

Jury chair Jon Greenfield, of Hamson Barron Smith said: ’The number of projects being undertaken across the East of England continues to grow, reflecting the economic stability of the region.

’We saw some incredibly clever and thought-provoking schemes, which we hope will act as exemplars for future new build and refurbishment projects across the country. Now, more than ever, we should be recognising the importance of zero and low-carbon design, and it is heartening to see an increasing number of clients putting this at the forefront of their design briefs.’

Regional winners will go onto be considered for the RIBA National Awards, with the successful recipients announced in July. Those collecting national awards will then be considered for the RIBA Stirling Prize shortlist.
