Regional Jury Chair, Adrian James of Adrian James Architects, said of this year’s RIBA South Award winners:
“The overall standard of the shortlist for RIBA South Awards was very high, which is why so many of them made the grade to progress to a Regional Award.

“Oxford generally dominates the architecture of the region. The University and the colleges have an eye-popping track record as patrons and that tradition shows no sign of waning. The standard of the submitted buildings in Oxford this year was quite superb. Most should achieve national and even international recognition.

“One building type that was notably absent in the region was housing. Whereas London has legions of housing developments each year, RIBA South apparently has none. So it is good to see that Oxfordshire is now taking meaningful steps to correct this, with major housebuilding initiatives. Let’s hope that the authorities and developers prioritise quality as paramount.”

Further Special Awards were awarded as follows:
Thames Tower, Reading – RIBA South Sustainability Award, sponsored by Geberit
Sarah Griffiths – RIBA South Project Architect of the Year Award, sponsored by Taylor Maxwell
Canoe Lake Leisure Tennis Pavilion, Southsea – RIBA South Client of the Year Award, sponsored by Tobermore
New Library, The Queen’s College, Oxford – RIBA South Conservation Award
The Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre, Worcester College, Oxford – RIBA South Building of the Year Award, sponsored by Artifice Press.

RIBA South Award winners will also be considered for a highly-coveted RIBA National Award in recognition of their architectural excellence, which will be announced on Thursday 21 June. The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning buildings later in the year.
