Winners at the Regional RIBA Awards

We were rendered temporarily speechless after picking up three regional RIBA Awards at the recent North East RIBA Awards alongside some of the biggest names in architecture. Friar House picked up the award for the best conservation project as well as a regional award and we were delighted to be the winners of the Emerging Practice of the Year.

There were celebrations into the night and now the hard work continues to maintain the momentum!
