RIBA Award win for the Investcorp Building

Elementa are proud to announce that the Investcorp Building at St Antonys College is one of the winners of the RIBA Regional South Award 2016. The RIBA awards champion and celebrate the best architecture in the UK and around the world, no matter the form; size or budget. Successful projects reflect changes and innovations in architecture, commitment to designing and developing buildings and spaces for the improvement and enhancement of people’s lives. At Elementa we also believe in the same philosophy that buildings should enhance people’s wellbeing, and we are committed to ensuring we comply this mentality with the whole design team by designing systems that do just that. We champion innovative movements such as the WELL standard and Living Building Challenge for buildings that not only benefit the environment but also their occupants.

Designed by World renowned architectural practice Zara Hadid Architects, RIBA stated “This is a project that demonstrates great virtuosity and a huge amount of technical skill.” Which is just one of the reasons the building won over the judges.
