Revealed: shortlisted designs in Sessay pavilion contest

  • Comment

The AJ can exclusively reveal the schemes by the finalists in the RIBA-backed competition to design a new community hub and sports pavilion in Sessay, North Yorkshire

The designs, which are on display at Sessay village hall until Saturday (3 January), have been drawn up by shortlisted practices Sutherland Hussey, Faed Brown Architects, Daykin Marshall Studio, and Gibson Thornley Architects. The concepts have been exhibited anonymously and loclas have been asked to vote for their favourite as part of the judging process.

More than eighty practices from around the world entered the initial stage of the contest.

The project – backed by the Sessay Parish Council and Village Hall and Playing Fields Association – will create a new community hall and pavilion for Sessay Cricket Club which won the National Village Knockout Tournament at Lords in 2010.

A judging panel, chaired by RIBA adviser Robin Snell, will interview the finalists on 8 January.

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

The new building will replace existing facilities on the site near Thirsk which have been described as ‘poorly designed, thermally inefficient and coming to the end of their useful life’.
