AJ Small Projects – great design for next to nothing


Every year the AJ recognises the best architecture built for a contract value of less than £250,000, covering the UK's best architecture with a contract value of less than £250,000. It provides inspiration for the kinds of projects being carried out in mainstream private practice and reveals how other architects' have approached issues of specification and design. The download gives you technical details of the highlighted projects and gives you a close look into the solutions behind their construction.

The AJ Small Projects issues are among the Architects’ Journal’s most popular editions of the year, featuring 24 of the UK’s best projects shortlisted and ranked in order of cost – cheapest first, most expensive last. All shortlisted entries will feature in two special February issues of the AJ and at a popular exhibition at The Building Centre in Store Street, London (starting 18 March).

Subscribe today and you can look forward to this special edition, providing you with:

• A source of inspiration for the kinds of projects your practice might be working on and revealing how other architects have approached issues of specification and design

The AJ launched the Small Projects Awards in 1996 – originally for schemes with a budget of less than £150,000 – declaring: ‘From home extensions to restaurants, offices to shops, architects all over the country are busy working on projects that may not make the headlines but nevertheless give a real indication of the design talent in Britain today.’
