RIBA Yorkshire Awards 2016 winners revealed

  • Comment

Schemes by Sheppard Robson, ADP and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios have all been recognised in this year’s RIBA Yorkshire Awards

Chosen from a shortlist of 12 projects, the winners included the ‘humbling and utterly inspiring’ York Art Gallery by Ushida Findlay and Simpson & Brown Architects, Hodson Architects’ ‘simple and well-proportioned’ house in Grimsby and Sheppard Robson’s redevelopment of the Brynmor Jones Library at the University of Hull.

Doma Architects’ AJ Small Projects Award-winning house extension in a conservation area in Harrogate also picked up an RIBA Yorkshire gong, and was crowned the region’s small project of the year.

A new monastery in the North York Moors National Park by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios was named Yorkshire’s Building of the Year. The scheme was described by the judges as ‘a perfectly contextual form that simply grows from the landscape’.

Jury chair, Caroline Buckingham of HLM Architects said: ‘In the 2016 RIBA Yorkshire Award winning buildings, we witnessed total dedication from the architects, enhanced and supported by the clients.This was borne out in the quality of the projects produced and the exquisite attention to detail shown.

’The winning projects ranged from a little gem whose understated title completely unlocked a clever and enlightening remodelling of a Victorian villa, to a new Abbey beautifully and lovingly executed over a number of years and sitting majestically in the Yorkshire countryside.

’Many of the projects included historic elements which were seamlessly brought together in a sensitive but simple way, expertly executed with delightful detailing.’

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.
