Last call for entries to 2017 York Design Awards

York’s property developers, builders and architects are being urged to enter buildings developed in the last three years into the 2017 York Design Awards.

With eight categories to choose from, the York Design Awards encourage and reward the highest standards of restoration and refurbishment of existing buildings and the best design in new buildings and public spaces in York.

Previous winners include York Art Gallery, the Hiscox Building, St Leonard’s Place Retail Unit, Your Bike Shed Cycle Café, Walmgate Bar and Kings Square.

Janet Hopton, Chair of the York Design Awards says: “We’ve received some fantastic applications so far, and if they are anything to go by, then judging the awards certainly won’t be an easy task and the judges could well be deliberating for some time.”

The deadline for entries is Friday 31st March and the awards will be independently judged in April by architect Julian Bicknell, principal at London-based Julian Bicknell & Associates, David Heath, chair of The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB), architect Nicky Rutt from Hawkins\Brown Architects and Geoff Rich, managing partner at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.

Full details on the categories and how to enter the prestigious awards is available at Winners will be announced and presented with their awards at the presentation evening which takes place on Monday 26 June at York Racecourse
