Conservation & Retrofit - Sponsored by Urban Space Management
The restoration and reuse of buildings, across any sector, where efficient use is made of existing fabric and embodied energy: from historic restorations to contemporary insertions and recycled buildings.

Culture & Community
Public buildings, museums, galleries, theatres, libraries, sports facilities, community hubs and youth centres of all kinds – the best examples of civic projects for local residents and international visitors. 

Educational establishments of all kinds – nurseries, schools, academies, universities, training centres – where design enhances the learning experience.

Homes - Sponsored by designjunction
The best examples of individual new homes across the capital, from one up to five units.

Hotels & Hospitality
Hotels, restaurants and bars that enhance the leisure offer for tourists, business people and Londoners in the capital – from budget to boutique to luxury.

Housing Sponsored by ALUK
Multi-unit residential developments of any tenure – from social housing to PRS to prime resi, creating exemplary new places for people to live. 

Masterplans & Area Strategies
Placemaking at its best – area-wide regeneration strategies and the creation of new parts of the city.  

Projects that embrace the city as a work in progress, enlivening spaces, places and high streets over a short-term period, while supporting long-term ambitions.

Mixed-Use - Sponsored by International Fire Consultants (IFC Group)
Buildings with a complementary mix of uses, designed holistically to meet the needs of a number of different activities and users.

Offices - Sponsored by Wicona
Office buildings that create exemplary places of work and meet the needs of business, technology and the individual.

Public Spaces - Sponsored by Broadgate Estates 
New or rediscovered spaces; parts of London that have been given new life through improvements to streets, squares, playgrounds, waterspaces or parks.

Markets, shopping centres, shop fit-outs and high street strategies – exemplary new places for the exchange of goods and services.

Transport & Infrastructure
Transport projects and related architecture that improve the experience of moving around the city and add to the quality of the environment; and infrastructure projects – water, waste, energy – that help London work more efficiently and sustainably.

Wellbeing - Sponsored by Airflow
Projects that are designed to improve the health and wellbeing of Londoners, young and old, from healthcare facilities to housing for an ageing population.

From office interiors to co-working hubs to affordable workspaces for making and manufacturing, new projects that create inspiring working environments while supporting London’s diverse economy.

Special Prizes 

Mayor’s Prize
The Mayor’s Prize will be awarded in association with the Mayor of London to the project that best reflects the Mayor’s ambition for ‘good growth’ as expressed in A City for All Londoners.  Selected from submissions across all categories, it will recognise projects that actively seek to maximise outcomes across the three key areas of empowering people, regenerating places and growing prosperity.

Ashden Prize
Awarded in association with worldwide sustainability charity Ashden, this prize will recognise projects deemed most efficient in their use of energy. Selected from submissions across all categories, successful projects will embrace sustainable design – whether through passive design, renewable generation or reducing embodied energy – and the innovative use of materials, technologies and techniques, creating exemplary schemes for London’s low-carbon future.
