Halliday Clark is pleased to announce that the company’s 35 Ben Rhydding Road scheme has won a RIBA Yorkshire Award in recognition of its architectural excellence.
The awards ceremony took place on the 23rd April 2015 featuring a number of high profile schemes amongst the competition such as the First Direct Arena in Leeds and The Gateway Project, Sheffield Cathedral.
The competition judges had the following to say about the project:
“This plan is atypical to its arrangement on the site, however immediately on arriving at the house, its siting on a north-facing slope at the foot of a spectacular crag makes it clear why such rethinking is justified and ultimately successful.
This light-filled home, a specific requirement of the client as well as a de rigueur architectural aspiration, sits between distant views to both the front and the rear, and draws light from both sides as well as from above.
The sunken court to the front, shielded from the road, provides a private sun trap, as well as bringing light into the lower ground floor living rooms.
Whilst clearly wishing to mediate its unconventional arrangement within its more conventional context, the high performance envelope is crisply detailed. This is clearly a home that is finely tailored to both its client and its location.“
