The 2012 Winner - Coffey Architects
The judges debated the definition of “small project” and decided that small public buildings were more commendable in this category, defined by projects costing under £1 million, which is quite a large budget for an individual house. Coffey Architects stood out, as its small public projects demonstrated both inventiveness and a degree of control that proved that they could easily scale up into bigger buildings. The practice’s portfolio showed a range of types and ambitions. The Book Box, an extension to a primary school in Kentish Town, was conceived as an adaptable space. Around the central double-height space, the practice elegantly integrated structure and fixed furniture. At the BFI Library, the architect has transformed a black box gallery space with a series of bronze curtains.
