Spacelab are proud to have been shortlisted for the refurbishment of the RIBA's new home.

The project at 76 Portland Place will provide office space for 180 staff, housing all of the RIBA’s London-based staff under one roof, freeing up number 66 to become a building where RIBA said ‘staff and the public will experience, learn and debate architecture.’

The RIBA president said: ‘We’re delighted with the volume of interest our 76 Portland Place project has generated. The quality of the 32 submissions and the range of practices who have expressed their interest in working on the project is very impressive. The field was so strong, the selection panel decided to increase the number of shortlisted teams, from five to six. We look forward to the teams’ presentations later this month.’
