Seven shortlisted for RIBA Yorkshire Awards 2024

Buildings including Leeds School of Arts, the second phase of Park Hill Sheffield’s redevelopment, and Clifford’s Tower in York are in contention for the Royal Institute of British Architects’ regional awards.

Those in the running are:

  • Catterick Racecourse: Dales Stand, Richmond, North Yorkshire, by Elliott Architects
  • Clifford’s Tower, York, North Yorkshire, by Hugh Broughton Architects with Martin Ashley Architects
  • Crimple Hall, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, by ArkleBoyce Architects
  • Leeds School of Arts, Leeds, by Hawkins\Brown
  • Park Hill phase two, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, by Mikhail Riches
  • Skipton Town Hall, Skipton, North Yorkshire, by LDN Architects
  • Sort Trae, Barnsley, South Yorkshire, by HEM Architects, Susi Clark & Marc Medland Architect.

RIBA Yorkshire jury chair Lucy Plumridge, associate director of HLM Architects, said: “The range of schemes submitted for the RIBA Yorkshire Awards demonstrate the growing trend of retrofit and a sustainability-first approach to design.

“We commend these practices for their innovative designs, which reflect the social and economic impact of reinventing existing buildings.

“From the radical restoration of Clifford’s Tower which unlocks rooms that have been inaccessible for over 300 years, to a sustainable farmers market building which sensitively connects to the surrounding Crimple Valley and habitats, as well as a concert hall upgrade which enriches a town hall’s cultural offering, there is a fantastic breadth of architecture across the region.”

All shortlisted projects will be visited by a regional jury, and the winning projects will be announced later this spring.

The winners will then be considered for several RIBA Special Awards, including the RIBA Sustainability Award and RIBA Building of the Year, before being considered for a RIBA National Award, the winners of which will be announced in summer.

Drawing from those winners, the shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize, recognising the UK’s best new building, will be announced in September, with the Stirling winner named in October.
