LDN attended the RIBA Yorkshire Awards ceremony last night in Leeds to represent our shortlisted project, the Piece Hall and Calderdale Central Library & Archives. We had high hopes that the project, which has transformed and rejuvenated the centre of Halifax, would come away with an award but expectations were exceeded when it was presented with not one but four!
We were delighted to take home an RIBA Yorkshire Award 2018, as well as awards for RIBA Yorkshire Project Architect of the Year (awarded to Mark Hopton for his work on the Piece Hall), RIBA Yorkshire Conservation Award and RIBA Yorkshire Building of the Year Award. Huge thanks, as ever, to Calderdale Council and everyone we had the pleasure of working with on the teams that made the Piece Hall and neighbouring Library the successes that they are.
