As young architects, with an emerging portfolio of completed projects, we’ve always been keen to illustrate our personality, interests and expertise through the written content on our website.

Now due to the dedication of our team, our efforts have been recognised with an award! We were delighted to win the Archiboo Web Award for Best Written Content 2017, present by Caro Communications at an awards ceremony held in Shoreditch’s White Collar Factory.

Archiboo commented that “Archio was praised by the judges for its commitment to the studio blog that came across as “lively and interesting”. The judges commented, ‘we felt we were in good hands”. The project descriptions, especially those that convey a sense of their history and backstory, were “impressive” and the introduction to the practice is “punchy and direct.”

“Social media is one of the categories where the quality of entries is far higher this year than last. We saw a focus on quality over quantity and a diverse range of content. Most importantly, there was less shouting about achievements and greater respect for the inherent link between community and architecture – something that fits nicely into social media as an approach. Entrants Mae and Archio were particularly called out for this.”

Special thanks goes to Archio’s Ione Braddick for motivating all the team to contribute to our monthly blog-writing sessions, and to the rest of the team for conveying their projects so well in the project descriptions.
