Chadwick Hall shortlisted for 2018 RIBA Stirling Prize
- Tuesday, July 24, 2018
The University's Chadwick Hall has been shortlisted for the 2018 RIBA Stirling Prize which is awarded annually to the best building in the UK. This follows recent successes at the RIBA National Awards and the RIBA London Awards 2018.
Chadwick Hall is set in the grounds of the Georgian grade II* listed Downshire House and is a recent addition to Roehampton's student accommodation, comprising three buildings with a total of 210 en suite bathrooms. With a design by Henley Halebrown that takes in both Downshire House and the Modernist Alton Estate (also grade II* listed), RIBA described the new halls as ‘timeless’ and noted the creation of ‘a welcoming and calm space’ where students can live, relax and socialise.
The RIBA Stirling Prize is judged against a range of criteria including design vision; innovation and originality; capacity to stimulate, engage and delight occupants and visitors; accessibility and sustainability; how fit the building is for its purpose and the level of client satisfaction.
The winner will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday, 10 October.
Set in acres of parkland and with a variety of unique architecture from the Georgian era onwards, the University of Roehampton is London's only campus-based university. In addition to regular open days and weekly campus tours, you can book a self-guided tour at a time convenient to you to explore our unique colleges.
