At MawsonKerr we’ve strived for 7 years to be the best we can possibly be in every aspect of practice life.
It is a great honour that we have been selected by the RIBA as one of nine practices that extols key characteristics at the heart of what the RIBA stands for :
“Organisations that exercise a positive impact – on their people, their clients, the profession and wider society.”
Naturally we are delighted but as always, its work in progress…

MawsonKerr are now a charted practice with the RIBA.
Not that you needed confirmation of our professionalism but RIBA Chartered Practices are the only architectural practices endorsed and promoted by the RIBA.
We were rendered temporarily speechless after picking up three regional RIBA Awards at the recent North East RIBA Awards alongside some of the biggest names in architecture. Friar House picked up the award for the best conservation project as well as a regional award and we were delighted to be the winners of the Emerging Practice of the Year.
There were celebrations into the night and now the hard work continues to maintain the momentum!
Following the RICS and Lord Mayors Awards we are delighted to have an RIBA award nomination for Friar House. Our work on the then dilapidated Georgian house transformed into Roomzzz Apartment Hotel has been shortlisted in the North East regional category.

Our competitive proposal for an eco-driving range on the historic Dunston Staithes has been announced as the RIBA Forgotten Spaces Winner 2012. The monumental structure caught our imagination and we hope this may inspire much needed regeneration to the industrial monument.
We were delighted the structure and our intervention have been recognised in this competition. An exhibition on the shortlisted schemes is running in Newcastle’s Newgate Centre until December 14th.
