The Bar & Restaurants category winner: Stiff + Trevillion won the award for Kerb Foods in Covent Garden, London. 

This project reoccupies a vacant historic building with a row of market stalls, and a two-storey atrium with restaurant and coffee outlets. 

Judges noted the re-use of the heritage building, which "continues the role of food in the city’s social and physical fabric, while working hard to be sustainable with all waste food being converted to biofuel in an anaerobic digester."

The Residential – Single Dwelling category winner: OHLAB won the ‘Residential – Single Dwelling’ category with the project Casa Palerm located in the centre of Mallorca in Spain. 

The layout, parallel to the slope of the terrain, allows all the rooms to enjoy views of the countryside and the Tramontana mountains towards the north while taking advantage of the south sun.

The Workplace – Small category winner: Smart Design Studio won the ‘Workplace – Small’ category with its own self-build studio project in Australia. Judges were impressed by the project’s ability "to re-purpose 80% of the original industrial building but at the same time entirely transform its character, redefining the building’s relationship with the context from the inside out and vice versa."

The Temporary/Meanwhile Uses category winner: The winning project was Re-ply by BVN in New York. 

The project was centred upon the repurposing of waste material as a multi-layered enterprise encompassing social, business and environmental benefits. Judges felt that this project was "truly part of the zeitgeist of 2020, leveraging a set of events into a series of impactful opportunities."
