David Chipperfield and Gareth Hoskins were among winners of special prizes at this year’s Civic Trust awards, held in Edinburgh
The Hepworth Gallery, Wakefield by David Chipperfield Architects was named the judges favourite and Gareth Hoskins Architects’ National Museum of Scotland took the Special Award for Scotland.
A total of 27 projects received prizes at the annual award ceremony which was held at The Hub in Edinburgh this year.
There were 52 schemes shortlisted for the prestigious design awards which recognise projects with positive social, cultural, environmental or economic benefits to local communities.
Six special awards were given to projects demonstrating outstanding design. The Longest Bench in Littlehampton by Studio Weave was awarded the Special Award for Community Impact and Engagement.
The Special Award for Sustainability went to Adam Khan Architects for Brockholes Visitor Centre, in Preston while the new extension to the Holburne Museum in Bath, by Eric Parry Architects was awarded the Michael Middleton Special Award.
The Michael Middleton award is given in memory of former Civic Trust director, Michael Middleton MBE, and recognises excellence in renovation or new build projects within conservation areas.
Malcolm Hankey, managing director of the Civic Trust Awards, said: ‘The Civic Trust Awards celebrate not only design excellence, but also the relationship between structures, places, the environment and communities.
‘Winning projects have demonstrated architectural excellence whilst offering cultural, social or economic benefit to the local community’.
