We are pleased to see a number of theatres and cultural facilities recognised at the RIBA Regional Awards 2021, given to UK buildings for their importance as pieces of architecture.

The Malthouse at The King's School in Canterbury by Tim Ronalds Architects, a conversion of the semi-derelict brewery malting building into a drama and dance facility and a modern theatre for professional touring companies and local community groups has received three awards, RIBA South East Award 2021, RIBA South East Conservation Award 2021 and RIBA South East Building of the Year 2021.

Page\Park Architects’ Leeds Playhouse reconfiguration and extension has won two awards, RIBA Yorkshire Award 2021 and RIBA Yorkshire Sustainability Award 2021.

Tŷ Pawb by Featherstone Young, a post-modern market hall and car park conversion into a performance space, art gallery and market stalls, won a RSAW Welsh Architecture Award 2021.

English National Ballet’s purpose-built, public-facing facility by Glenn Howells Architects was selected as the RIBA London Building of the Year 2021, as well as receiving a RIBA London Award 2021.

A RIBA London Award 2021 has been awarded to MICA Architects’ Fairfield Halls project that improved its accessibility, operation, and financial viability.

Mountview by Turner Works, a new vocational performing arts academy with public theatres that serve the community, has also been recognised with a RIBA London Award 2021.

All winners will be considered for the 2021 RIBA National Awards and the 2021 Stirling Prize.
