Our refurbishment and extension of Templeman Library at the University of Kent has been shortlisted in this year’s AJ Awards, in the Refubishment (above £20m) category.

Our design for the extension and refurbishment of the University of Kent’s Templeman Library demonstrates a new standard for the renewal of Brutalist University buildings. The renewed building provides a beautiful, functional and sustainable home for an
exemplary contemporary library.

More than 120 projects were shortlisted by the judges to compete in this year’s AJ Architecture Awards, which celebrate the very best projects built in the UK. Judges will visit every shortlisted project this autumn. In addition to outstanding design, judges will consider each project in detail, assessing how it has met or exceeded the brief, how it has promoted client or community engagement, and how it has excelled in the use of space or sense of place.

Winners will be announced at the Roundhouse, London on 4th December 2018 and will include the announcement of three special awards, chosen from all entries: the AJ Building of the Year, the AJ Architect of the Year and the AJ Editor’s Choice Award.
