The Accordia housing project in Cambridge, England, has won this year’s Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Stirling Prize.

The project was designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBS), Alison Brooks Architects and Maccreanor Lavington Architects.

Accordia saw off competition from Allford Hall Monaghan Morris’ Westminster Academy in London; Grimshaw/Arcadis Architecten’s Bijlmer Station in Amsterdam; Allies and Morrison’s Royal Festival Hall refurbishment; Manchester Civil Justice Centre by Denton Corker Marshall; and Zaha Hadid’s Nordpark Cable Railway in Austria.

The judges said the project demonstrated “high-density housing at its very best” to deliver high-quality architecture.
