2017 Civic Voice Design Awards
Civic Voice, the national charity for the civic movement, has recently announced the shortlist for the third annual Civic Voice Design Awards.
18 schemes from across England have been short listed by the expert judging panel for their high quality design and positive impact on the local community. The awards are sponsored by British Land and Farrells.
Unique in England, the Civic Voice Design Awards give communities the opportunity to nominate and celebrate well-designed new build, housing, heritage and public realm projects in their local area, that they are proud of.
The Civic Society nominated Hall Barn and we are pleased to note that it has made the short list.
The Barn, Dronfield’s oldest domestic building now transformed into a high class heritage and arts centre, faces stiff competition in the ‘Historic Buildings’ category from other projects including:
- The Bandstand, Sandown, Isle of Wight (South East)
- Quay Place, Heritage & Wellbeing Centre, Ipswich (East of England)
- Sunbridge Wells, Bradford (Yorkshire & The Humber)
- Sunny Bank Mills, Farsley, West Yorkshire (Yorkshire & The Humber)
- The White Hart Hotel, Retford (East Midlands)
- Winton Chapel, University of Winchester (South East)
The winners will be announced in Parliament in the summer. We would like to express our congratulations to all those who have made Hall Barn worthy of this national prestige.
