2018 Macgregor Smith prize for Landscape and Public Realm Design

As part of our continued partnership with the University of Bath’s Department of Architecture, we are delighted to have chosen the winners for our Landscape and Public Realm Award 2018.

This year’s award goes to Luke Gordon, Lang Jin, Kristen Tan, Cyrus Lee, Harjeet Matharu, Chen-Yong Tan and Honyen Chong for their group project ‘La Habana’.

Their vision aimed to resolve the Cuban capital’s waste, water and transport issues, as well as repairing deserted areas of the city. By introducing green spaces and a focus on uses for the community, the team’s proposals sought to make a real difference to the society and local people’s everyday lives through public realm. A well considered team effort and a thoroughly deserved award!

RIBA National Award!

We are delighted to announce that Marlborough Primary School has won a RIBA National Award!

The judges said: ‘The community created within school buildings is paramount to the educational outcome of the children that attend. Marlborough Primary School, formed through a convoluted planning negotiation, transforms an urban site into a series of terraces that wonderfully define a school culture centred around day-lit space and external play space.
The impressive sectional diagram and solid detailing of this school creates an impressive new urban block, linking the school to the city while providing a terraced place of learning that is readable fresh and distinctive. A school that will encourage pupils to play, learn and achieve.’
