2023 RIAI Awards

The RIAI has announced the winners of the 2023 RIAI Awards last week and van Dijk architects were delighted to pick up two awards on the night for Beyond the Trees: Avondale House & Forest Park in County Wicklow.

Beyond the Trees: Avondale House & Forest Park in County Wicklow by van Dijk Architects and Stöger + Kölbl Architekten and the International Rugby Experience in Limerick by Niall McLaughlin Architects both took home the awards for the Cultural and Public Buildings category, recognising the significant contribution made by both projects to culture. The Universal Design category also recognised our Avondale project as the winner for its excellence in design.

The RIAI works to inspire excellence in Architecture to deliver a sustainable and resilient future and the awards recognise the contribution Registered Architects make to the built environment.
