Burntwood School in Wandsworth has won the 2015 RIBA Stirling Prize.
RIBA’s Stirling Prize is one of the UK’s most prestigious architecture awards, with nominees shortlisted from the RIBA National Awards and judged for the best contribution to architecture within that year.
The school, which has won a number of architecture awards this year, is a very modern take on design for education, with bold colours and interesting facades.
Architecture firm Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) is behind the winning project, which the judges described as ‘the clear winner of the 2015 RIBA Stirling Prize’.
Other shortlisted buildings include the popular design The Whitworth, which is said to be ‘reminiscent of 1950s Aalto’ and the striking towers of NEO Bankside.
