This collection of winners from the 2015 Architizer A+ Awards includes ABA’s Lens House, which won in the Large Private House category.

The A+Awards celebrate the diversity of the world’s architecture. The entrants, from over 100 countries, run the gamut of architectural typology and form, ranging from the tallest towers to the tiniest apartments and everything in between. From a sinuous elevated bike path to a “human-sized birdhouse,” the winners represent the full spectrum of architectural endeavor: There is a next-generation prefab construction method, a pop-up tower “grown” from mushrooms, conscientious renovations in China, and even a radical revitalization of the NYC waterfront.

Phase 1A of the South Kilburn Estate Regeneration project is nearing completion on site.

ABA’s scheme for Phase 1A is a collection of three building typologies of up to four storeys: apartment terrace, flatiron building and mews houses knitted between existing eleven storey apartment blocks. Street frontages are animated with front porches, recessed balconies and roof gardens create a layering of landscape and highly articulated, rhythmic facades.
