The shortlist for the Guernsey Design Awards 2014 has been announced. The awards, which recognise outstanding design in our built environment, attracted nearly 30 entries that represent a broad spectrum of building projects.

The 13 shortlisted projects are very varied featuring everything from a school, a traditional Guernsey farmhouse, to a beer garden but all of the entries are outstanding examples of their type.

Clive Fenner, from main sponsor Norman Piette, commented on how difficult the shortlist selection had been. “The judging panel is made up of representatives from The Guernsey Society of Architects, The Arts Commission and the building trade and though we are supported throughout by the Environment Department and have guidelines of what to look for in a project, we all approach it from our own perspective, so reaching agreement isn’t easy, particularly when the standard of entries was so high. However, we now have a shortlist of 13 projects that show just how local architects rise to the challenge regardless of the size or budget of the build.”

The shortlist is split across the four categories of the awards:
