Stephen Lawrence Prize

Montpelier Community Nursery, London | AY Architects

AY Architects’ Montpelier Community Nursery in Kentish Town has won the 2013 Stephen Lawrence Prize, beating five other projects to the prize.
The prize, sponsored by the Marco Goldschmied Foundation, is for projects with a construction budget of less than £1 million.

Judges' comment:
"The Montpelier Nursery is one of those rare new buildings that are happy and serene in their context from the outset. It is the product of a genuine community effort involving many of the parents working closely with the local authority to make it so. Throughout their lives the children will affectionately recall the time they spent there."
