The team of judges felt that Architype was a worthy winner, ‘leading across the board in breadth and depth’, noting the variety of sustainable building types we have successfully delivered.
They were particularly impressed with the design of the Imperial War Museum’s Paper Store, the Passivhaus archive facility which opened this year with record-breaking air tightness credentials. The Architect’s Journal’s Hattie Hartman noted that the facility plays an important role in Architype’s portfolio, developing ‘an architectural language on par with its sustainable approach.’
We were pleased to to be announced as the ‘clear winners’, beating stiff competition from AJ100 companies including Allies and Morrison who were highly commended and Hawkins\Brown, with whom we are working as Passivhaus delivery architects on the UK’s largest residential Passivhaus project, Agar Grove.
Architype were also commended for our ‘generous approach to industry knowledge sharing’, taking part in over 50 architecture talks in the last year.
