LONDON.- A new home for the Ravens in the Tower of London; a Japanese-take on the London terraced house; and a new centre of excellence for brain research were last night among 36 projects named as winners of the prestigious RIBA London Award for architectural excellence in the capital.

A magical restoration of one of London’s historic gems went on to win the capital’s biggest prize for architecture this year, the RIBA London Building of the Year Award, sponsored by Marley Eternit.

The stunning restoration of the 18th and 19th century buildings of Wilton’s Music Hall by Tim Ronalds Architects was revealed as the winner of the RIBA London Building of the Year Award at a ceremony.

The judges praised the atmosphere created in the restored Wilton’s as ‘seductive and unforgettable’ with the architect’s great skill being used to give areas of the building an ‘archaeological character’.

The awards ceremony – attended by many of the capital’s top architects and clients - was held at the Stirling Prize shortlisted University of Greenwich Stockwell Street Building, which houses the University’s Architecture Department.

There were 181 entries into the RIBA London awards this year. Some 68 schemes were shortlisted and visited by one of our four expert juries. That each shortlisted scheme has been visited and thoroughly examined makes the RIBA Awards widely regarded as the most rigorously judged awards in the profession.

The RIBA London Award winners will now be considered for a highly-coveted RIBA National Award which will be announced on Wednesday 6 July 2016. The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best UK building of the year will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning buildings later in the year.
