Practice News

We end 2023 on a high after a year of regional and national awards success.

Following the completion of the first phase of SOYO, our regeneration masterplan in east Leeds, the 515-apartment build-to-rent development has been highly decorated for its design, construction and delivery.

Our Practice also gained national recognition for our work across the residential and workplace sectors, and our demonstrable commitment to wellbeing in design and technological innovation.

SOYO had an excellent run, picking up Best Residential Project at the Yorkshire Residential Real Estate and Constructing Excellence North Awards, and being crowned Project of the Year in the latter. Our sensitive development in Knaresborough, Waterside, also won for Best Small Development at the Yorkshire Real Estate Awards.

The Insider Media Awards were held in September, where we were shortlisted for Architect of the Year and Best Refurbishment & Retrofit for One Sovereign Quay. SOYO took home the award for Best Residential Development.

At the International Property Awards in London, we were delighted our Waterside project was awarded Best Small Residential Development for our region.

And finally, at the UK Building Awards, held in November, we were thrilled to be nominated as Architectural Practice of the Year and Best Large Residential Development for SOYO.

Awards are but one small measure of the success of a project – with environmental performance, occupant health & happiness and a positive contribution to our towns and cities a far more valuable metric. However, we are always proud and grateful to see the hard work of our amazing team across the two studios celebrated by others.
