The University of Sheffield’s Arts Tower, incubator of architectural talent, was the fitting venue for the 2014 RIBA Yorkshire and Sheffield Civic Trust Architectural Design Awards on Friday night.
SUM Studios, home to MM Design Limited, picked up 4 awards for Simon Gedye’s wonderful development of a Grade II listed Victorian School Board building. Heeley Development Trust’s amazing resurrection of a derelict school now provides some of the most inspiring and uplifting creative studio space in the region. SUM Studios was awarded The Peoples Award for Best Building (voted for by the people of Sheffield), and 3 Judges awards for Best Conservation, Best Community Development and The Sheffield Design Award.
A big thank you to all who voted, and also to the University of Sheffield, RIBA Yorkshire and the Sheffield Civic Trust. Congratulations also to the other winners!
