Architectural Awards


Our Architectural Awards recognise exemplary conservation and restoration projects in the United Kingdom and reward those who have shown the vision and commitment to restore Georgian buildings and designed landscapes. Awards are also given for high-quality new buildings in Georgian contexts and in the Classical tradition.

To mark the Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown tercentenary, the Group is especially pleased to receive entries relating to the restoration of the Brownian legacy, especially in the following categories: Reuse of a Georgian Building; Restoration of a Georgian Garden or Landscape. The Group is a partner of the Capability Brown Festival 2016 and will draw on the expertise of other Festival  partners and organisers at the Landscape Institute when assessing entries.
