Success at the York Design Awards 2023!!
We are thrilled announce we have won the Young People's Award for the Foss Bridge House project at the York Design Awards 2023. It is an honour to receive my first design award and I can now call myself an award-winning architect!!
The aim of the York Design Awards is to encourage and promote excellence in design and conservation, striving for the highest standards which will delight present and future generations.
Awards, judged by an independent panel including eminent national and international figures in architecture and design, are presented annually in a range of categories with the scope for more than one award in each category (with the exception of the Lord Mayor’s Award).
Homeowners, building owners, architects, developers, restoration and construction companies are all encouraged to submit schemes for consideration. The judges have praised the inclusiveness of the awards scheme which recognises the role of good design not just in major developments but also in smaller schemes, restorations and extensions and in the public realm.
The award jury had this to say about the project:
This is a striking contemporary dwelling that embraces its rural setting and addsto an eclectic street of houses. Its well-proportioned architectural form, sculptural roof and elegantpalette of materials is uplifting and pleasing on the eye. The large barn-like gable to the rear with its exposed galvanised steelwork helps the house blend comfortably into its rural landscape.
