The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) has announced the winners of 2018 RIAI Architecture Awards. The awards, held recently at a ceremony in Dublin’s Mansion House, recognise the quality of work carried out by RIAI members in 2017 and highlight the contribution that Irish architects make to society for everyone’s benefit.

Now in their 29th year and with 15 categories, this year’s shortlist included 32 projects, spanning 12 counties across Ireland as well as an international project in India. The jury chose 20 overall winners and gave awards to 12 Highly Commended and 8 Commended entries. 2018 saw the highest number of entries to the awards since before the recession and the standard was so high that the jury also selected 63 projects for exhibition, which will be shown at the RIAI offices and online later this year.

Clancy Quay, Phase 2 by OMP Architects was the winner in Housing, while the prize for Best Public and Culture went to the National Gallery of Ireland, Refurbishment of Historic Wings project by Heneghan Peng architects, with Blackwood Associates Architects.  Newry Leisure Centre in Co. Down won in the Best Universal Design category and Meath County Council HQ, by Bucholz EcEvoy Architects, took the top spot in the Fit-Out category.  The Tenement Museum in Dublin, designed by Shaffrey Architects was named Best Conservation/Restoration Building. The award for Best Education Building was shared between a primary school in Westport, Co. Mayo, Scoil Phádraig, designed by SJK Architects and No 26 York Street, the new medical education building on the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland campus in Dublin, which was designed by Henry J Lyons.  Irish architects continue to deliver major projects abroad and Best International Project went to Thapar University Student Accommodation in India, designed by McCullough Mulvin.

For the 10th year, members of the public were invited to have their say on the Public Choice award. Over 10,000 votes were cast, and the winning building was No 26 York Street, The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (pictured above), designed by Henry J Lyons.
