AJA were delighted to win the 2016 ANC Award in the Architectural Acoustics: Education category for Boardman House. This is our second ANC Award, having previously won the award for Architectural Acoustics at the first ANC Awards in 2013 for the UEL Stratford Library. Project acoustician Ian Rees was presented with the award by physicist and TV presenter Helen Czerski and Ecophon’s Shane Cryer at the ANC Conference in Birmingham in June.
Boardman House is a 19th century Grade II* listed former Sunday school building which now houses media studios and teaching spaces for the Norwich University of the Arts’ School of Architecture. The judges, who included architects, acousticians and academics from across the UK, described the project as “A successful and sensitive integration of acoustic and architectural design, which is unusual in a historic building”. Boardman House has already won an RIBA regional award for Hudson Architects.
