The headquarters for the international not-for-profit organisation CABI has been shortlisted for the RIBA South Regional Awards 2022.
Judged and presented locally, RIBA Regional Awards celebrate great architecture across the UK.
CABI apply scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment. Scott Brownrigg worked alongside Project Managers and Lead Consultant Ridge and Partners LLP (Ridge) to complete the low energy design that offers a two-storey office space and successfully integrates an experimental bio-diverse landscape with a new collaborative flexible working environment.
Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the building responds to its surroundings with a living roof, which will attract insects and birds and enhance biodiversity. Inside, it hosts up to 180 members of staff, who are provided with a range of amenities including a café restaurant, meeting rooms and conference room / auditorium.
All shortlisted projects will be assessed by a regional jury with the winning projects announced later this Spring. More information available here.
