SWA Associate architects Toby and Eleanor were at BD awards ceremony to accept Education Architect of the Year 2017 award.

This award is open to architects working on buildings – whether residential or teaching facilities – in the nursery, primary and secondary education sector including sixth form colleges. The size of the pojects were immaterial to the judges who were looking for evidence of all-round design excellence and fitness for purpose over a body of work. The size of the projects featured will not be a factor in their deliberations. This award recognised Eleanor's recently completed Mellor Primary School and Toby's Takeley and Roseacres primary schools. See the BD website here for more information on the awards and our education project pages.
