Leading Architectural Technology practice wins Alan King Award

A leading Architectural Technology practice, based in London, was named the winner of the Alan King Award 2013 by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.

Studio Kyson’s winning project, 5 Montpelier Terrace, is an exemplary example of a conversion. The project comprised the remodelling of a Georgian cottage into an environmentally conscious family dwelling. Situated in Knightsbridge, the innovative design solution by Scott Kyson, Chartered Architectural Technologist, provided an interior that is naturally well-lit and is at the forefront of Architectural Technology.

Scott Kyson MCIAT of Studio Kyson said: ‘It is an honour to win the Alan King Award and the installation of the Institute’s Award plaque in the heart of Knightsbridge is a great achievement and one that I feel very proud of.’

Highly Commended was awarded to Phillip Hapka MCIAT of James Denholm Partnership for conversion of a barn into a family home in a rural part of Perthshire. The solution was impressive with good use of locally sourced materials throughout the building.

Kevin Crawford MCIAT, Vice-President Technical and Chair of the judging panel said ‘Recognising projects valued at £750k or under, I am extremely impressed by how fellow Chartered Architectural Technologists design and drive concepts to maximise use of space with innovative use of materials. I’m sure that both clients are proud of their completed dwellings and will enjoy them into the future.’
