  • Comment

Schemes by Faulkner Browns, Evans Vettori and Levitate have been named among the winners of the 2016 RIBA East Midlands Awards

In total nine winners were chosen from the 12-strong shortlist and include Sanei Hopkins’ ‘open and light’ family home in the Peak District National Park, a ‘contemporary interpretation of a country house’ by James Gorst Architects, and the £12 million restoration of Lincoln Castle by Arrol & Snell.

Hugh Broughton Architects’ new gallery at the Welbeck Estate picked up the region’s Building of the Year Award alongside accolades for sustainability and conservation.

The judges described the scheme as ‘a carefully curated and crafted new building that perfectly suits its world class collection’.

Takero Shimazaki’s print workshop was handed the Small Project of the Year Award and also earned the firm’s Jennifer Frewen the Project Architect of the Year Award.

Regional jury chair, Lucy Plumridge, commented: ‘The large number of schemes shortlisted for the 2016 RIBA East Midlands Awards reflects the calibre of the entries and the range of inspirational projects being developed in this region.

‘The quality and attention to detail exhibited by the winning schemes was outstanding. Recurrent themes were innovation in the approach, the close working relationship between client and architect to bring the projects to life, and the embedded sustainability in the designs.

‘Every scheme suited its end users perfectly, creating a sense of place and an aspirational environment.’

The winners were announced at the Caruso St John-designed Nottingham Contemporary last night (27 April).

Regional winners will be put forward for the RIBA National Awards, with the lucky recipients announced in June. Those collecting national awards will then be considered for the 2016 RIBA Stirling Prize.
