RIBA launches Sessay village hall design contest

  • Comment

The RIBA has opened an international design competition for a ‘striking’ new village hall in Sessay, North Yorkshire

The project – backed by the Sessay Parish Council and Village Hall and Playing Fields Association – will create a new community hall and sports pavilion in the historic settlement.

Existing facilities in village are – according to the competition announcement – ‘poorly designed, thermally inefficient and coming to the end of their useful life’.

The winning team will therefore be expected to deliver ‘striking new facilities’ which will meet the future demands of the community and cater for increasing visitor numbers.

Sessay Parish Council chair John MacPherson said: ‘I’m delighted to be part of this exciting project to create a new, vibrant hub for our community. I hope the design teams will feel the same way and look forward to seeing some original and innovative ideas.’

Judging panel member Wayne Hemingway added: ‘I think it is great that a small village community such as Sessay are placing the desire for great design at the heart of the thinking about the new community building and I look forward to seeing the designs coming through and how they complement this fantastic setting.’

Four shortlisted teams will be invited to take part in the competition’s second stage.

The deadline for stage one entries is 2pm on 28 October.
