The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has today (Thursday 6 October 2016) announced Westmorland Limited as winner of the 2016 RIBA Client of the Year award. The annual award, supported by The Bloxham Charitable Trust, recognises the key role that a good client plays in the creation of fine architecture.

Westmorland Limited – the first and only family run motorway service station operator in the UK – was nominated by Glenn Howells Architects for the RIBA National Award-winning Gloucester Services.

RIBA Client of the Year judge Tom Bloxham said:

“The best buildings result from successful partnerships of highly ambitious clients working with equally demanding architects. With Gloucester Services, Westmorland have not only commissioned a brilliant service station – a type of site not necessarily known for its architectural qualities – but they have contributed much more, creating a successful business model that has its local community at its heart. I am delighted that Westmorland have been recognised with the RIBA’s Client of the Year award for their incredible achievement.”

Manchester City Council – nominated by Mecanoo for their 2016 RIBA National Award-winning HOME (in addition to the 2016 RIBA North West Award winners Manchester Central Library by Ryder Architecture and Library Walk Link Building by SimpsonHaugh and Partners)

The RIBA Client of the Year award honours the key role that a good client plays in the creation of fine architecture. They consider clients of the year’s RIBA Award-winning schemes but take into account a track record of previous successful commissioning, particularly where this has led to earlier RIBA Awards

The judges named Hammerson the 2010 Client of the Year for their commitment to supporting good architecture. Working with a mix of established and younger architects, they have produced commercial architecture of the highest quality. Inspiring design has resulted in inspiring projects, which include the Foreign Office’s striking net glazing at Leicester; artist Susanna Heron’s etched glass windows in Stanton Williams’s Bristol store, and the beautifully detailed oriel window shopfronts in Eric Parry’s Threadneedle Street project.
