RIBA London awards: Grimshaw’s London Bridge station takes top prize

  • Comment

Grimshaw’s overhaul of London Bridge station has been crowned Building of the Year in the RIBA London regional awards

The major upgrade of the transport hub took the top accolade in the capital, where this year 46 other projects were recognised, ranging from council homes to high-profile arts projects.

Among the housing winners are two schemes by Peter Barber Architects, both in north London, Karakusevic Carson’s overhaul of the Colville Estate in Hackney and Metropolitan Workshop’s Mapleton Crescent in Wandsworth.

Education projects also feature among the winners, with prizes for Níall McLaughlin Architects’ new home for the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and AY Architects’ science lab for Eleanor Palmer Primary School in Camden.

Another Camden school, Torriano, was recognised for its new STEM lab, designed by Hayhurst and Co, which took home the Small Project of the Year award.

Gongs also went to Battersea Arts Centre by Haworth Tompkins, Southbank Centre by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Stanton Williams’ Royal Opera House makeover and South London Gallery by 6a architects.

Here East by Hawkins\Brown and Television Centre by AHMM have also won awards. 

RIBA London director Dian Small said: ’The 2019 winning projects range from a one-bedroom private house which spans the length of two private garages to one of the busiest train stations in the country. They also include several significant public sector housing projects, beautifully-designed school extensions, state-of-the-art office buildings and exquisite conservation projects, which breathe new life into some of London’s greatest treasures.

’Once again, all winning buildings demonstrate the extremely high standard of design quality in London and the breadth of its architectural output.’

Regional winners will be put forward 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.
