The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced the winners of the 2021 RIBA National Awards for architecture. The awards, which have been presented since 1966, recognise the UK’s best new buildings and provide an insight into the UK’s design and economic trends.
Among this year’s winners are two projects by Stanton Williams – the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children for Great Ormond Street Hospital in London and the Eddington Key Worker Housing for University of Cambridge in Cambridge.
Designed around the unique communities they serve, both projects venture into new architectural territories for Stanton Williams.
Our first affordable housing project, the Eddington Key Worker Housing supports a dynamic and global post-doctoral community at the heart of the new urban quarter of North West Cambridge. Our first healthcare building, the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children in London is about making connections not only within the community inside the building, but with the wider public: reimagining clinical and research environments as a shared, urban experience.
We are delighted that both projects have been recognised by the RIBA. Congratulations to our clients, the whole team and all the people who use our buildings every day and give them purpose.
