Our Architectural Awards, sponsored by international estate agents Savills and now in their twelfth year, recognise exemplary conservation and restoration projects in the United Kingdom and reward those who have shown the vision and commitment to restore Georgian buildings and landscapes. Awards are also given for high-quality new buildings in Georgian contexts and in the Classical tradition.
The 2014 Awards will be presented by His Grace The Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry in December 2014. Entries are now being accepted. There is no entry fee. Schemes must be in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man or Channel Islands
and must have reached practical completion between 1st January 2013 and
1st August 2014. For the purpose of the Awards, the term ‘Georgian’
embraces the period of classical ascendancy in Britain and is taken to
mean 1660-1840. The owner's consent is a condition of entry.

For restoration schemes, before and after shots should be included.
