Landmark Buildings stamps


In August 2017, Royal Mail launched a Special Stamp set to celebrate 10 buildings that represent a resurgence of contemporary architecture in the UK from recent years. The Landmark Buildings issue uses photography to capture remarkable structures from all over the country.

Royal Mail says: “All the buildings in the set are famous landmarks and a great many of these structures, serving culture, sport, government and business, have since become popular and integral parts of their local landscapes, often playing a part in regeneration.” (Royal Mail website)

BRE were delighted to find that 8 out of the 10 buildings in the set have been assessed under BREEAM, demonstrating that not only have these buildings been designed and constructed to become iconic structures within their communities, but they have also demonstrated a tangible commitment to sustainability.

The building certified against BREEAM are as follows:

  • The Everyman Theatre (Liverpool), Winner of the RIBA Stirling Prize for Building of the Year (2014) also achieved an Excellent rating.
