We’re proud to work on these award winning schemes
Congratulations to our architect and developer clients who this month have won, and been shortlisted, for RIBA Awards for projects across the UK.
The RIBA Awards are some of the most renowned accolades in architecture, and we’re proud to see some OFR projects on the winning lists;
The Royal Horticultural Society commissioned the Welcome Building as a “striking 21st Century addition to the gardens” – one which would greet the centre’s half million annual visitors as they begin their Bridgewater journey.
The resulting building was designed by Hodder and Partners, and offers a bright and spacious entrance, with a timber roof grid that diffuses daylight as it enters, while louvres provide a flexible system for controlling natural and artificial light levels.
The museum replaces the former ‘virtual’ offering, and now takes pride of place in the city, allowing visitors to explore stories in every form.
Our South West based colleagues worked on this interesting development in Oxford, which saw the transformation of a collection of disjointed buildings into an unusual museum.
Other projects honoured at this year’s award include the Carnegie School of Sport in Leeds. Our colleagues Callum Dyer and Laura Smith worked on the project in their past roles; the pair also previously worked on the Newcastle Civic Centre by FaulknerBrowns Architects – this year’s North East Award winner.
