It's awards season!
It seems that winter is the time for various industry awards. We were delighted - and completely taken by surprise - to be shortlisted and eventual runner-up in the Young Architect of the Year category at the Architect of the Year awards in December. Against a European-wide field, we were one of only three British practices to make it onto the shortlist. Well-deserved congratulations to Spanish practice Olga Felip/Josef Camps Arquitecturia who took the top spot having produced an amazing quality and quantity of built work, all the more worthy of praise given it was achieved against the backdrop of truly dire economic conditions. We were honoured and delighted to be on a list with them! Hana has also been shortlisted for Emerging Woman in Architecture 2014, part of the Women in Architecture awards run by the Architects' Journal. Again an incredible shortlist of people of whom we are in awe and admiration, as well as some good friends. Fingers crossed for the 7th February!
