RIBA London Awards: 50 projects pick up regional honours

  • Comment

A ‘sublime’ studio by 6a architects for photographer Juergen Teller has been crowned RIBA London’s Building of the Year, as the region revealed a 50-strong crop of award winners

The 505m² concrete scheme on a narrow plot in Ladbroke Grove was described by the jury as ’a mature and confident statement of orderliness and precision’ which also managed to be ‘relaxed and playful’.

Chosen from an 85-strong shortlist, the number of projects to win regional honours in the capital this year has risen significantly from the 36 schemes which picked up awards in 2016 (see AJ 04.05.16). The winners list is dominated by new homes, with 11 houses and six housing developments among the victors.

The most successful practice was AHMM which landed honours for four of its projects, including New Scotland Yard – also a finalist for AJ100 Building of the Year 2017.     

There were also accolades for Herzog & de Meuron’s Tate Modern Switch House, Zaha Hadid Architects’ Winton Gallery at the Science Museum and David Chipperfield’s flagship London store for Valentino.

Meanwhile the £245,000 house No 49 in Lewisham by 31/44 Architects – a finalist in the AJ Small Projects Awards earlier this year – took the title of London’s Small Project of the Year. There was also an award for Martin Eriksson, an in-house designer at Transport for London, who was named regional project architect of the year for his work on West Croydon Bus Station.

However there was no regional recognition for Lynch Architects’ King’s Gate & Zig Zag Building, shedkm’s One Ruskin Square office development in Croydon or HOK and PLP’s Francis Crick Institute in King’s Cross.

Jury chair Matthew Lloyd said: ’The year has demonstrated once again the breadth of the capital’s architectural output at the very high level that the RIBA programme requires, and the juries took enormous pleasure in selecting a most exemplary set of schemes.’

All the victorious buildings will now go on to be considered for national honours, with the successful projects revealed in June. The six finalists for the 2017 RIBA Stirling Prize will be drawn from these national winners.
