AJ Small Projects

After a successful launch night on November 20th, the Architects Journal (“AJ”) have reviewed over 150 entries for the 2019 Small Projects Award.

The awards celebrate completed projects with a contract value of below £250,000. Launched in 1996, the awards have given much-deserved recognition to lower-value schemes for over 20 years. 

The entries have now been whittled down to just 20 contenders, showcasing an amazing array of creativity in design. The judging takes place on 10th April and the coveted award will be revealed at the awards night that evening.

We have proudly sponsored these awards for many years and our reasoning behind this has never changed. From home extensions to restaurants, offices to shops, architects all over the country are busy working on projects that may not make the headlines but nevertheless give a real indication of the design talent in Britain today.

Last year’s winner was an entry from Matheson Whiteley Architects called the ‘Wrong House’, which can be seen in the video below. This project perfectly captures the essence of the awards and we are excited to see the designs from this year’s entries as well.
