Now in its 27th year, the annual AJ Small Projects Award, run in association with Marley, celebrates completed projects with a contract value of £299,000 and under.

Last year, the limit was increased for the first time in nearly 20 years to reflect inflation and ensure we can continue to celebrate the rich diversity of projects on a smaller budget. Since they were first launched in 1996, the intention of the award has remained the same: to give much-deserved recognition to schemes realised at a more modest cost. From home extensions to workspaces, restaurants to shop fit-outs, pavilions to small houses, architects all over the country are busy working on projects that may not make headlines but nevertheless provide a real indication of the depth of design talent across the UK today.

All the projects entered for the award will be featured in the AJ Buildings Library with the 20 shortlisted projects published in the AJ in March 2022.
