Our New Studios at Wimbledon College of Arts were awarded both an RIBA Regional (London) and an RIBA Sustainability award at the ceremony in London on Monday 22nd May.
This deceptively simple zinc-clad structure in the Merton Hall Conservation Area was designed as a versatile and adaptable set of creative learning spaces and is a BREEAM Outstanding exemplar for the estate of the University of the Arts, achieving the second highest BREEAM score in the world at the design stage assessment.
RIBA awards celebrate the best architecture in the UK and around the world, regardless of size or budget and are regarded internationally as a mark of excellence.
Judges said “It is the architectural design that is most outstanding here: from the carefully composed elevations and the beautifully detailed cladding; to the main upstairs studio’s wonderfully unexpected and engaging raftered structure. Stepping further away from the site into the surrounding streets, the greyish blue building sits comfortably and delightfully into its surroundings.”
