Sheffield architects win design award for Chatsworth building
Peak Architects has won the prestigious Build Award for the Best UK Small Project of the Year Award, for its design of the Chatsworth Stickyard Education Centre. The project has been completed for client The Devonshire Education Trust and is now in use by schools and colleges visiting the Chatsworth Estate.
Peak Architects’ founder and director, Paul Holden, comments: “The annual Build Awards search the entire world of architecture for designs that they consider exceptional. We are particularly proud of the Stickyard design where we converted a redundant Grade 1 listed cart shed and barns into a glorious outdoor education centre.
“The ‘Stickyard’ provides a balance between the historic restoration of the listed buildings and the insertion of modern functional elements which create a series of dynamic teaching spaces; we believe that this approach was picked up and appreciated by the Build Award team.”
This latest award comes on the back of two recent national shortlisting for the Stickyard within the RIBA and RICS Awards; as well as Peak Architects being a finalist in Building Design Magazine ‘Small Architectural Practice of the Year Ward 2016’.
