Great news at the Design & Craftmanship Awards held last night at The King’s Centre, Norwich, with two projects recently delivered winning awards in the Civic and Community category.

Goldsmith Street, a passivhaus social housing scheme, has scooped this year’s ‘Civic and Community in Norwich’ title at the 2019 Design and Craftmanship Awards, which was presented at an evening ceremony at the King Street Centre, Norwich. The 2019 RIBA Stirling Prize winner, Goldsmith Street, was designed by Mikhail Riches and recognised at the ceremony for its high-quality design as well as for the community and collaborative process with Norwich City Council.

Also on the night, The Nook, the new hospice at Framingham Earl for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, designed by Barefoot & Gilles, walked away with the ‘Civic and Community in Norfolk’ title for it’s positive contribution to the local area.

Commenting after the awards ceremony Mario Rackham of R G Carter said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won awards for two of our amazing community led projects. We very much pride ourselves on delivering the very highest standard of craftmanship and quality finish across all our projects and so it is an honour to be recognised by industry professionals in this way. We will look forward to continuing to provide the local community with outstanding buildings.”

The Design and Craftsmanship Awards 2019 is a collaborative event between the Norfolk Association of Architects, Norwich Society and Civic Voice.

Well done to all the team involved in ensuring the design and craftsmanship was delivered to such an award winning, high standard.
