The new cafe at the end of Deal Pier has been shortlisted for another award.

The Royal Institute of British Architects announced the nomination for the 2009 special awards today.

Drawn from the 103 RIBA award-winning buildings announced earlier this year, the winners will be announced on Saturday October 17.

The Stephen Lawrence Prize, for which the pier scheme has been nominated, is sponsored by the Marco Goldschmied Foundation and rewards the best examples of projects that have a construction budget of less than £1 million

The £5,000 prize is intended to encourage fresh talent working with smaller budgets. The award is judged by a panel including architect and past President of the RIBA Marco Goldschmied, and Doreen Lawrence OBE, mother of the teenager who was setting out on the road to becoming an architect when he was murdered in 1993.

The Deal Pier project was designed by Niall Mclaughlin Architects. Ironically, the work was carried out by Dover-based company Barwick Construction, which has become of the latest victims of the recession and gone into administration.

The other shortlisted entries for the award are The Long Barn Studio in Maulden, Bedfordshire, by Nicolas Tye Architects, El Ray at Dungeness by Simon Conder Associates, Hind House, Wargrave by John Pardey Architects, and House in Highgate Cemetery by Eldridge Smerin.
