Over the past week we have been delighted to learn that 3 buildings designed by Architype have been shortlisted in their respective regions for the RIBA 2017 awards.
The first to be announced was RIBA East, with the UEA Enterprise Centre making the list of regional finalists. This is the 25th nomination for the project from various UK awards, 20 of which it has won so far. This year however sees one of the biggest shortlist ever for RIBA regionals, and the building will face stiff competition from 31 other worthy projects.
We were also delighted to hear that St. Michael’s Hospice in Herefordshire was one of 12 shortlisted projects in the West Midlands. The redevelopment of St. Michael’s was realised almost entirely through public fundraising is now helping to provide free palliative care to the county of Herefordshire.
Finally, we learnt that Highgate Junior School has been shortlisted in the most hotly contested region, London, a category that showcases the best new architecture in the capital this year.
It’s a great result for our team, who have all played an important role in the success of the said projects. We look forward to a RIBA party-filled May, and hopefully some winning results!
