AJ Small Projects

After a successful launch night on November 20th at the Egret West office in Farringdon, the Architects Journal (“AJ”) have received all of their 2018 entries for the Small Projects Award.

With over 150 entries to assess there will be lots of discussion to be had amongst the judges, who are soon to be announced, as to who will receive the coveted award at the awards night on the 10th April 2019.

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. 

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 years 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 years entries aswell.
