AJ Awards Winners 2023

We’re delighted to showcase two of our projects which were recently crowned winners at the AJ Awards 2023.

Leighton House Museum

Leighton House Museum by BDP (Building Design Partnership Ltd) was declared winner in the Cultural project category.

The aim of this ambitious project was to turn the existing museum from hidden gem to national treasure. This entailed expanding the site to provide more space for core visitor functions, collection care, a dedicated gallery for over 700 Leighton drawings, a new entrance and shop, and a consolidated staff suite. Following it’s re-opening the museum received fantastic press reviews and was also visited by King Charles III. This award further adds to its many accolades.

White Eagle Lodge

White Eagle Lodge by James Gorst Architects won in the Community & Faith project category, and then went on to be awarded the highly prestigious AJ Design of the Year. Earlier on the same day the project also won Gold at the 2023 Wood Awards.

White Eagle Lodge is a new build temple complex set on a hilltop in rural Hampshire.  There were many challenging aspects to this project involving design, physical and environmental factors, and all aspects of the brief were meticulously thought through. We’re delighted that this remarkable building is now being recognised both here in the UK and also internationally, as it was also one of the few shortlisted home-grown entrants at the 2023 World Architecture Festival.
