shedkm, a 25-year-old architecture practice with offices in Liverpool and London, has won New Member of the Year at the Architects’ Journal AJ100 Awards, in London last night 22 June 2022.
The Liverpool born practice also scooped the Building of the Year award for Circus Street in Brighton and was shortlisted in the Practice of the Year and Community Impact categories, as well as ranking #82 in the AJ100 rankings.
shedkm began in Liverpool 25 years ago, emerging from the recession of the 1990s, with a mission to deliver a bold new approach to architecture, which focusses equally on the financial viability of a scheme alongside its potential to generate social value with new opportunities for public realm, community living and quality places to live and work.
shedkm’s work is rooted in regeneration, with a distinctive approach resulting in bold, engaging schemes which are economically and socially transformative. An approach which has always been about ‘levelling up’.
shedkm Managing Director Hazel Rounding said, “We are over the moon at this recognition in our 25th year.
“As a Liverpool born practice who brought our urban approach to London 10 years ago, the awards are an amazing achievement for the entire team.
“Circus Street is the project that embodies 10 years of cross studio culture, individual strength, and key relationships, but fundamentally an understanding of the importance of regenerating cities through public/private investment, bold architecture and the creation of social value and place.
“We’d like to thank everyone involved over the 25 years for what remains a truly collaborative achievement!”
