A COLLEGE graduate has been recognised as a "prominent architect of the future" for his award winning clubhouse design.

Barton Peveril graduate, Eoin Shaw, won the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) London Student Award 2020.

Eoin, who now studies Architecture at The Bartlett School of Architecture: University College London, won the award after creating a design for the North London Architects Group (NLAG).

The award winning design was a concept for a Clubhouse for the Association of Enthusiasts of the North London Line which is said to have mixed "contemporary design with classic architecture to blend a modern building into a centuries old dockyard".

Eoin, who also previously attended St George's Catholic College, said he was surprised and honoured to win the "highly sought after accolade".

He said: "My final project resulted in the creation of a clubhouse for trainspotters which sits in a pink tube slotted into a series of cranes created as a fictional storage solution for the market.

"Despite most of the project being created from home with weekly zoom tutorials, I still managed to create more work than I probably ever have before, including a final drawing the size of a wall on pieced together yellow trace that took 3 weeks to create."

Eoin's former teacher at Barton Peveril, Kirsty Gormley, said: “It’s always fantastic to hear of students’ successes and the art department are delighted that Eoin has won a London Student RIBA Award.

"Eoin’s design captures the professionalism and creativity of architecture and his hard work and dedication is a real testament to the College."
