Revealed: winners of 2016 RIBA North East Awards

  • Comment

The RIBA has announced the five buildings which have picked up gongs in the North East

Chosen from a shortlist of 11 projects, the winners included a Cor-ten-clad library and sports centre by FaulknerBrowns Architects, a house for a writer and sculptor in Hexham by Newton Architects, Elliott Architects’ ‘delightful’ visitor centre at Crook Hall, and a £16 million community leisure centre by Ryder Architects.

Sutherland Hussey Harris’ new family home in the leafy Darras Hall estate was crowned the region’s Building of the Year.

The scheme was described by the judges as a ‘daring design’ which is ‘uncluttered, spacious and serene’.

The project’s patron was also handed the Client of the Year Award for his ‘vision, determination and hands on approach’.

Grace Choi, RIBA North East awards jury chair, said: ‘There have been such a broad spectrum of entries to this year’s RIBA North East awards 2016.

’It was a delight for the judges to visit a variety of buildings, from significant regeneration projects, community and leisure centres, serviced office spaces and luxury private houses to a delicate glass house and intimate cafe. There is no doubt that the region is producing exemplary architecture from both well-established practices and new emerging talent.’ 

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.
