THE latest project from Sheffield architectural design specialists CODA Bespoke which featured on Channel 4 hit Grand Designs has picked up a second top architectural award.
The Cornyard in Oughtibridge – a 200-year-old corn mill site in the north Sheffield suburb which was transformed it into a pair of self-build properties – was named Residential Property of the Year at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Awards, Yorkshire and Humber.
The project will now go through to the RICS national awards, which will be held in London in October.
“We always knew that this was going to be a very special project but for it now to have won a second major award is something we never anticipated when we embarked on this project,” said CODA Bespoke director Abel Hinchliffe.
“We are delighted for our clients, of course, but we are also delighted for ourselves because we feel these two awards recognise the dedication and attention to detail that made this project so special.
“These are a brilliantly contemporary pair of properties that are also completely sympathetic to the heritage of this most unusual site.”
