Who won what at the AJ Architecture Awards 2017?

  • 1 Comment

Twenty-three AJ Architecture Awards were given out at a special celebration ceremony hosted by comedian Dara O’Briain

The biggest victor was Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands which, as well as taking home first prize in two categories including Housing Project of the Year for its Paradise Gardens scheme, was named AJ Architect of the Year. 

There was yet more success for Banbury-based Acanthus Clews Architects whose ‘beautifully handled’ Warwick Hall Community Centre – recent winner of AJ Retrofit of the Year 2017 – picked up both Heritage Project of the Year and the coveted Design of the Year.

Reiach and Hall also came away with a pair of major accolades: its Nuclear and Caithness Archives building in Wick, Scotland was named Public Building of the Year and was also handed the AJ Editor’s Choice Award.

In total there were 23 category winners chosen from 120 shortlisted projects across the UK, from Omagh to Wick and from Cardiff to Canterbury.

The juries made 259 building visits in their search for the best new architecture in the country, looking at an eclectic mix of projects ranging from community schemes and cultural projects to tall buildings and design in the workplace.

The 59 judges included architects Eva Jiřičná, Mary Duggan and developer Crispin Kelly.

The AJ Architecture Awards were held at an exclusive gala dinner on 7 December in the Grosvenor House Hotel, central London.
