We are pleased to announce that Yeoryia is an invited speaker at this year’s World Architecture Festival taking place in Amsterdam from 28 November until 30 November 2018. Her talk will address the theme of architecture, education and identity in a panel chaired by Jerónimo van Schendel Erice and with co-presenter Peter Magyar. WAF is the only architecture event where keynote talks from the industry’s most influential figures sit alongside live crit presentations and judging of award finalists. For a detailed programme please visit this link.
Yeoryia is invited to give a presentation at the Architectural Association for Critical Practice: Rethinking Clients, the first of a series of conversations ‘which brings together leading European architectural practitioners that, through their projects and attitudes, challenge the conventions of contemporary practice’. The other presenters are Peter Swinnen (CRIT), Maarten Gielen (Rotor) and Giles Smith (Assemble). Organised by Love di Marco, Tobias Hentzer Dausgaard and Arya Arabshahi.

Yeoryia is honoured to be invited to be one of the judges responsible for judging this year’s RIBA President’s Silver Medal, as well as the Serjeant Award for Excellence in Architectural Drawing and the SOM Foundation Award for RIBA Part 2. The RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards are considered the most prestigious and long-lasting awards in architectural education in the world. Fellow judges in this year’s panel, chaired by the RIBA’s Director of Education David Gloster, include Alex de Rijke and Eva Franch i Gilabert. The winners will be announced at a ceremony taking place on 4 December 2018 at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London.
We are pleased to announce that Dartmouth Park House is in the RIBA’s selection of finalists for the 2018 Stephen Lawrence Prize awarded to the best new project in the UK with a construction cost of under £1 million. The building is also a contender for this year’s RIBA House of the Year Award and has already received a RIBA London Regional Award. The design challenges and reinvents the Victorian house with brave spatial moves that carve the building and with intimately crafted insertions that entirely transform it. In 2013 AY Architects were Winner of the Stephen Lawrence Prize with Montpelier Community Nursery. The winner of this year’s Stephen Lawrence Prize will be revealed at the RIBA’s Stirling Prize awards ceremony on 10 October.
Dartmouth Park House is Winner of a RIBA London Award. The RIBA Awards are regarded ‘as the most valued architecture awards’ in the UK, reflecting an unrivalled ‘commitment to designing buildings for the improvement and enhancement of people’s lives’. The jury which visited the building praised it as ‘a very successful reinvention of the Victorian house’ and an ‘unusual and exotic home’ reflecting the clients’ personal interests. Beginning as a modest conversion of an over-developed terraced house, the project became an ambitious redevelopment of the entire building, including a courtyard, a 3-floor void with a theatrical staircase, and a sense of warmth and continuity achieved by using crafted timber elements throughout interior and exterior spaces. For the jury’s full commentary after visiting the building, please visit this RIBA link.
The Eleanor Palmer Primary School Science and Technology Lab is nearly completed. We are looking forward to seeing the building as a fully inhabited learning environment, used and enjoyed by the school’s community.

The Dartmouth Park House has been shortlisted for a RIBA Award. These awards are ‘regarded internationally as a mark of excellence, recognising the best architecture and architects’. Throughout April all shortlisted schemes will be visited by a jury and the winners will be announced at a ceremony at the RIBA on 15 May.
