On 11th May 2012, the most innovative and influential architectural designs will be justly awarded at the Guernsey Design Awards.
The event is a joint contract between The States of Guernsey Environment Department, The Guernsey Society of Architects and Norman Piette and will showcase all of the exemplary work that has gone into enhancing the Island’s built environment.
Managing Director of Norman Piette, Clive Fenner, commented:
“The Guernsey Design Awards are a great way to celebrate both the architectural and construction industries in Guernsey and recognising excellence in these fields fits perfectly with what Norman Piette stands for.”
In this edition of the magazine, we explore the work of PF+A, CCD Architects, BAS Mooarc, Lovell Ozanne and Tyrrell Dowinton Associates – all of whom have been shortlisted for the prestigious Guernsey Design Awards.
Of course, not every project can be nominated for an award. We therefore also explore the every-day projects that are helping to shape the Channel Islands.
