RIBA Southwest Awards Shortlist in 2016

2nd March 2016 – RIBA Southwest today announced a shortlist of 16 new and exciting buildings for the RIBA Awards in the region.

Having shortlisted from 49 entries, over the coming weeks the RIBA judging panel will be visiting a range of high quality buildings right across the Southwest; from the UK’s newest motorway services at Gloucester to the Plymouth School of Creative Arts, and a trio of buildings at Arts University Bournemouth.

As well as the prestigious Building of the Year Award, which in 2015 was picked up by South Quay Hayle in Cornwall, the shortlist will also produce a number of other category winners including Client of the Year and Project Architect of the Year. Five projects are by practices from the Southwest including young RIBA Chartered Practice Hilton Barnfield from Exeter, as well as established Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Mitchell Eley Gould from Bath, and Cornwall’s Arco2 Architecture.

The winners will be announced at an evening event on the Grand Pier at Weston-super-Mare on 29 April hosted by Michael Holmes, Content Director for Centaur Media, TV presenter and chair of the National Custom and Self-build Association. Details of how to book tickets will be announced soon.

RIBA Southwest regional director Jon Watkins said:

RIBA Awards always bring out the best in local and national architects across our vast region, and this year’s shortlist offers quality, diversity of type and scale, excellence in design, and lots of delight.

Location: southwest England, United Kingdom, north west Europe

Morlands Farm is a private house with a big difference: the clients have created a wonderful eight-acre public garden, wanting to live as well as work in the midst of this landscape. This means sharing their lives with the public who come to see their Sussex Prairie Gardens.
