A place at the table of the highest of architectural achievements
North West RIBA Regional Award 2019
Contract value: £1.65m
Cost per m²: £623
This deliberately sparse conversion of two combined 1950s buildings for a charity has achieved the most impact with the least expenditure. The architect’s diligence and skill has enabled the client to be truly heard. A newly positioned entrance orientates the building to the street and regenerated neighbourhood. Throughout rigorous, simple adjustments to layout and careful cutting have tailored the building while leaving room for further flexibility. This may be architecture with a little ‘a’ but it has a place at the table of the highest of architectural achievements.
