West Offices and Canopy, Sation Rise

York’s first railway station, redundant soon after its construction in 1840, has been converted into the City of York headquarters. By inserting a free standing structure into the old concourse and building a new north-light roof, the original offices and hotel have been given appropriate new uses and the character of the station has been preserved.

Architect: Crease Strickland Parkins
Client/Developer: S Harrison & Buccleuch Property and City of York Council
Presented by: Rebecca Thompson, Master York Guild of Building
