York Design Awards promote excellence in architectural design and conservation in the York area. Join us for the 10thannual York Design Awards presentation.

This flagship event includes the presentation of plaques to the winning schemes - chosen by a distinguished panel of independent judges - in categories covering residential, community and commercial buildings, and open spaces. An accompanying exhibition showcases all the 2016 entries.

This year York Design Awards celebrates 10 years promoting and advocating excellence in architectural design in and around the city of York.  Excellent architectural design creates a sympathetic environment for people to live in, work in or visit.  What is designed and built now will stand for generations and should make a positive contribution to the centuries of York’s heritage.  In conserving and renovating precious buildings from the past and in designing worthy successors for the present and future, York Design Awards recognise the contribution of good design to enriching people’s lives. 

Previous award winners range from major public buildings, such as City of York Council’s West Offices and developments at the universities, to architect-led extensions at private houses and a small church room. The judges consider all the schemes with equal attention and recommend only the best for awards.
