Architect's Journal Architecture Awards

In November 2022, The Burrell Collection won awards in both the Culture and Heritage categories in response to the refurbishment of this category A listed building. 

The prestigious awards celebrate and recognise design excellence in UK architecture across a range of key sectors. In addition to stand-out design, the judges considered how each project has met or exceeded its brief, promoted client and community engagement and how it has excelled in the use of space or sense of place, as well as sustainability measures put in place.

‘You really want to go back, and it’s really successful in terms of its sustainability,’ said the judges. ‘Now it’s a place that you go to experience the history around the collection.’
