The Wandsworth Design Awards, run by the council, look to select the best building projects of the past two years.
2011 winners include Balham’s Broomwood Hall School, where additional floor space in the roof of the grade II listed building was created following building work, and Our Lady of Pity and St Simon Stock RC Church, in Putney, which won an Access Award after work was done to create better access for people with disabilities.
The council say Tooting Library stood out for having had a successful extension project and a high-quality refurbishment for library facilities.
