Win an Architect 2024

For the fourth year running, Studio Wignall & Moore are launching a competition to seek out the most innovative client briefs and architectural proposals which enhance, showcase and celebrate culture outside the Capital.

We are offering the chance to win a design concept worth up to £12,000. In short, the team will act as your advisors to develop your design and bring tangible detail to your plans.

A jury of prominent industry voices will select the winning brief from a short list of the most exciting entries, and critically, use their expertise to offer suggestions on how each project can be developed.

Whether you’re an organisation looking to renew your design vision, a custodian of a cherished heritage asset in need of restoration, or an arts organization poised to make a significant impact, we want to hear about your project.

"We were delighted to have benefited from the support of Wignall & Moore, for what has led to a radical and appropriate vision for our historic site. The resulting vision has been met with national attention, a consensus of enthusiastic support and we look forward to making it into a reality."

Prizes and Judges

The winners will receive:

  • Grand Prize: A design concept valued at up to £12,000. This comprehensive package includes the judges insights, a thorough site study, client workshop, planning investigation, design drawings, and captivating 3D visualizations tailored to your project. In short, we will act as your advisors to develop your design and bring tangible detail to your plans.
  • Runners-Up: Four runners up will also benefit from the judges comments and a site visit & design consultation, where you can bounce your ideas off of our team to help move your project closer to realisation.

A jury of prominent industry voices will select the winning brief from a short list of the most exciting entries, and critically, use their expertise to offer suggestions on how each project can be developed. The Judging panel for this year includes:

""We were delighted to be announced the 2023 Winner of the competition and Wignall and Moore were quick to visit our centre, listened to our challenges and thoroughly factor our vision into the proposed design for the G-Mill building. We are now working closely with Wignall & Moore and Sheffield City Council to make the design a reality and provide our community with an intangible cultural and heritage asset. I will strongly recommend the competition to any community organisation or social enterprises who would like to rapidly increase its revenue and the wellbeing of the people"
