Cass architecture tutor Takero Shimazaki chairs jury for prestigious annual award featured on Channel 4's Grand Designs
Date: 30 November 2018
Takero Shimazaki, who leads Unit 8 on the MArch RIBA -Part 2 course at The Cass, was chair of the jury for The RIBA House of The Year Award 2018.
The RIBA House of the Year is awarded to the best new house designed by an architect in the UK. This winning house for 2018 , announced this week, was Lochside House by HaysomWardMiller Architects
Lochside House is a modest, sustainable home which sits in a magical location on the edge of a Scottish lake in the West Highlands. Designed bespoke for the needs of the owner – a ceramic artist – the house is completely off-grid and engages with the wild landscape; from the roofs that echo the distant mountains to large windows which make the most of the stunning views.
Takero Shimazaki is Director of Takero Shimazaki Architects (t-sa), founded in 1996 with Yuli Toh. The practice often works as a wider team, collaborating with designers, researches and photographers on projects. In 2016, they won a RIBA East Midlands award for Leicester Print Workshop.
Takero’s work has featured in many exhibitions and publications, and the practice is actively involved in education through an independent school set up by the practice in 2006.
