NEO Bankside Shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize
3rd August 2015
The Royal Institute of British Architects has revealed the six buildings competing for this year's Stirling Prize, one of which is London's NEO Bankside housing development. London architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners completed NEO Bankside, a set of six-sided apartment blocks beside the Tate Modern art gallery on the edge of the River Thames.
The RIBA Awards are the most rigorously judged prizes for architectural excellence in the UK, with the winning buildings then eligible for the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize. Born in 1996 out of its predecessor, The Building of the Year Award, The RIBA Stirling Prize is presented to RIBA Chartered Architects and International Fellows for buildings in the UK which have made the greatest contribution to the evolution of architecture over the past year.
London architects, Gillespies, were also involved from the start in the design of this high-end residential scheme, developed jointly by Native Land and Grosvenor.
Frosts Landscape Construction were absolutely delighted to be involved with the design and installation of all of the Hard and Soft Landscaping on this project, and are extremely proud of the two BALI Principal Awards in the Hard Landscaping and Soft Landscaping categories, alongside the BALI Award in Maintenance that the project has won.
NEO Bankside has also won the Best Landscaped Development category in the Sunday Times British Homes Awards for 2013, GOLD in the New Homes and Gardens Award 2012 for Best Communal Garden/Landscape, and GOLD for the Best Landscaped Urban Development.
