3 – 5 Blake Street

Architect: – DSP Architects, York
Developer: Helmsley Group

Judges Comments: a really significant scheme which is about rediscovering the historic city core. York’s famously picturesque streets conceal many neglected corners – former industrial sites, garages, etc. At Blake Street a group of listed buildings has been meticulously restored and new additions made in an appropriate but entirely contemporary manner. The impact on the city is entirely beneficial – a more populated city centre will be a more civilized one.
