RIBA North East Award

The RIBA North East awards ceremony was held at the Tyneside Cinema last night. Our new home for the Architecture and Built Environment department at Northumbria University was one of four award winners from a strong field of varied entries.

“The jury were impressed with the character and depth of the design solution, executed in response to a difficult site context and a demanding brief. The architectural additions to the group of the buildings on the site has a high degree of subtlety and refinement, provides a strong sense of identity, and expresses clearly the sense of a new home for the School of Architecture.” (RIBA website)

The department have been strong advocates of the importance of studio culture at the heart of their teaching approach and the project is testament to their determination to nurture that culture. This award recognises the University’s bold approach to the reuse of their listed buildings.
