The projects that have been shortlisted are:

RIBA South West Jury Chair Graham Bizley, of Prewett Bizley Architects, said:  

“The shortlisted projects showcase the breadth and diversity of architecture in the South West. Whether that’s exhibiting great sensitivity to their surroundings or respecting the sites’ heritage and cultural history, they strike the perfect balance. 

“It’s particularly heartening to see the projects carbon credentials which demonstrate a commitment to low-carbon and low-energy construction.”

The RIBA Regional Awards shortlists for 2024 will be announced from 8 to 23 February. Check back throughout this period for shortlist publications.

All projects shortlisted for RIBA Regional Awards will be visited by a regional jury, and the winning projects will be announced later this spring.

The winners will then be considered for several RIBA Special Awards, including the RIBA Sustainability Award (sponsored by Autodesk) and RIBA Building of the Year (sponsored by EH Smith), before being considered for a highly coveted RIBA National Award, which will be announced in summer.

The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize – the UK’s best new building – will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning projects, and announced in September. The Stirling Prize winner will be announced in October.
